"Confiscated" is an interesting choice of word. Why did you confiscate it?

Don't know if already posted but a school friend of mine had mentioned Nirvana, he had an older brother, see. I'd been looking for something new to listen to. I was 15, I had tried on punk for a bit, but after the novelty wore off, the music was just not interesting enough. I hadn't arrived at post-punk and all its derivative forms yet. Metal was, despite all its subgenres, getting boring. It seemed like there was only a handful of decent groups per category and then a million boring imitators. Grunge was something else which kept me for a good few years.

She wasn't listening to it and it had to be listened to, it was just lying there on her desk so I had to take it. ;)

Ofcourse I had heard some songs of it on the radio which i liked(think you can imagine what songs those were), so how can one not resist taking it, yep, I admit I stole it. Being 15 at the time, had no money to buy it myself.

Actually, I was a bit slow to catch up on torrenting. I probably got it off LimeWire or something. I did buy all the CDs eventually, even spent £50 on With The Lights Out box set thing.

If you thought you were a bit behind on torrenting, I only learned how to do it last year.

I've truly only bought one vinyl. The rest came from my family members' collection.

If you don't already know, amazon has CDs fo super cheap! Often brand new, $4-$12! And if you can, try to buy a bunch at the same time from the same seller to save on shipping.
The Jeevies. It's a feeling you get.
