Releases: Released on vinyl (with a limited edition of 15,000 on blue vinyl), cassette and CD.
Additional Information: A collaborative enterprise by 'Sub Pop' and 'Geffen'
(originally planned as two separate releases, one by each label), partly as an attempt to beat the
bootleggers. The collaboration was intended to ensure a definite compilation, as well as give the band more control over it and ensure greater distribution than 'Sub Pop' could muster.
The cover art is a painting by Cobain. The sticker on it reads "Inside Incesticide: Rare B-Sides, BBC Sessions, Original Demo Recordings, Stuff Never Before Available", and six of the fifteen tracks were unreleased at the time ('Hairspray Queen', 'Aero Zeppelin', 'Big Long Now', 'Been A Son', '(New Wave) Polly' and 'Aneurysm'). 'Mexican Seafood' was previously made available on 'Teriyaki Asthma', 'Beeswax' on 'Kill Rock Stars', 'Downer' on CD versions of 'Bleach', 'Stain' on the 'Blew' EP, 'Dive' and 'Sliver' on the 'Dive/Sliver' single (note: the phone call outro to 'Sliver' between Krist and Jonathon Poneman on the single was omitted for its appearance on CD) and 'Turnaround', 'Molly's Lips' and 'Son Of A Gun' appeared on the 'Hormoaning' EP. 'Been A Son' on 'Incesticide is a different version to that on the 'Blew' EP, as are the versions 'Aneurysm' from their respective previous releases. According to Endino 'Hairspray Queen' and 'Aero Zeppelin' were not remastered for their release on this CD, virtually being the one-hour mix versions he did on the day of their recording. Some American copies include linear notes written by Kurt. In trading circles complete versions of the October 21, 1990 and the November 9, 1991 radio sessions are available. Complete session tapes also exist for the January 23, 1989 and April 1990 sessions. Other outakes from the September 1989 Music Source and December 1989 Reciprocal studio sessions have also surfaced.
