Vid Surfaces of Nirvana Playing Empty Radio Shack

This is great. This is endearing, this is some REAL footage right here.

January 23, 1988, a band NOT YET known as Nirvana recorded their very first demo as the band "Ted Ed Fred"- they later went to a local Aberdeen Radio Shack after hours to make a DIY music video for their song "Paper Cuts". There have been little snippets of this video for years but now the full video has been uploaded online and this is just so great to see.

Nothing is plugged in, the video features multiple takes of Kurt Cobain flying and leaping to enter into the shot, their drummer Dale Crover (who later joined The Melvins) and Krist Novoselic all trying to make this little music video
