Released: 11/88

Releases: This single launched the 'Sub Pop Singles Club'. Limited to 1000 handnumbered (in red ink) copies, in a fold-over sleave, on black vinyl.

Additional Information: On this release only 'Love Buzz' features a 10-second sound collage intro made by Kurt from various childrens records spliced together and a similar collage dubbed into the instrumental break. This comes from a much longer collage made by Kurt, which is 34-minutes long, known as 'The Montage of Heck', which is available in trading circles. 'Love Buzz' was originally performed by 'Shocking Blue'. The version of 'Love Buzz' on this single is a different mix to those on all 'Bleach' and 'Blew EP' releases, being remixed for other releases and lacking the aforementioned collages. It was remixed to increase it collectibility and lacked the collages because Kurt forgot to bring the home-made tape with it on to the remixing session! Alice Wheeler took the photo on the front of the album in Tacoma's 'Never Never Land' (a park) close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Kurt's name is given as 'Kurdt Kobain' on the credits and on the 'Love Buzz' side is etched 'Why don't you trade those guitars for shovels?' | all documents, unless otherwise noted, © 2001 | Contact webmaster
