Va Te Faire Enculer

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: A  96%

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
After listening to this performance, it's hard to believe the band had so little life left in it. The 2-16-94 is arguable the best performance of the "In Utero" tour. "Va Te Faire Enculer" (which would be *'ed out if the title was in English) captures the show with a clear professional audience recording. There is some crowd noise throughout, but the show is still very listenable.

Notable things about the show include a rare one-time performance of the Knack's "My Sharona" at the end of "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter." The band jams on the main riff of "My Sharona" several times during the show. The "Sappy" from this show is frequently said to be the best version ever... people probably like it because it sounds the most like the "No Alternative" version. "Sappy" was being played in 1989 and had undergone transformations throughout the life of the song. "Lounge Act" is also played, and is always a treat (Kurt blows the lyrics, but it's still great).

The most appealing thing about this double CD is the liveliness of the band. Kurt makes several comments to the audience, calling Rennes "Ren and Stimpy land", telling them "We were in Paris the other night and they were a much better audience"... only later to tell them that they were the better audience. Krist and Kurt also comment about the back area of the audience being the "pot smokers section."

The set list is long and unedited on this double CD set. The artwork is original, if unspectacular. The bonus tracks (7-14 on disc 2) are filler from the Reading 91 and 92 shows. This double CD set is highly recommended if you find audience recording acceptable. "In Utero" shows don't get much better than this.
