Nirvana's Original $600 Sub Pop Contract Revealed
Sub Pop have posted a piece of music history with an image of the original Nirvana record contract.

The 25-year-old document shows how the band were offered just a $600 advance in exchange for a commitment to record three albums with the label. "Six hundred bucks well spent - not that we had it at the time," add the label next to the image on the Sub Pop blog.

Nirvana eventually only released one album with Sub Pop, with the album "Bleach" being snapped up by Geffen records which would go on to release their seminal "Nevermind" in 1991.

The contract dated between 1989 and 1991 lists four Nirvana members - Kurt Cobain, Jason Everman, Chad Channing and Krist Novoselic. Of course, Dave Grohl would go on to sit behind the drum kit in 1990.

Meanwhile, "In Utero" is being released as a special 20th anniversary package in September with over 70 tracks including b-sides and live material.
