Z’s Deep Cuts: Nirvana – All Of Us (1968)

I’m listening to The Existence of Chance Is Everything and Nothing While the Greatest Achievement Is the Living of Life, and so Say ALL OF US on a train heading up to north London, and I’m wearing my The Existence of Chance Is Everything and Nothing While the Greatest Achievement Is the Living of Life, and so Say ALL OF US. Yeah, I like the full title.

This has the ingredients that all my favourite pop records from the era have in common. A concept album of sorts with a weird premise and lots of layers. Full of personality, great melodies and amazing playing. I especially love the drumming on this album.

Patrick Campbell-Lyons and Alex Spyropoulos were the two pop talents behind Nirvana. The first two albums are so inventive and delightfully over-the-top. Nicely crafted and eccentric. Fun and nostalgic at the same time.
