Dave Grohl recorded a 10 track demo back in
1990. Just as with the
Foo Fighters demo, he played every instrument himself. He gave this
demo to one of his friends, Jenny Toomey, who happened to own
Simple Machines records. This demo was later released under the band
name Late! The album title was "Pocketwatch".
The tracks are:
1. Pokey the Little Puppy
2. Petrol CB
3. Friend of a Friend
4. Throwing Needles
5. Just Another Story About Skeeter Thompson
6. Color Pictures of a Marigold
7. Hell's Garden
(A different recording of "Marigold" later appeared as a B-side of the
Nirvana "Heart-Shaped Box" single. A different recording of "Winnebago"
was released as a B-side of Foo Fighters' "This Is a Call" single. See
section II-A for more info.)
The album has been available via Simple Machines; however, they are
currently swamped with orders, and are no longer taking new orders until
they can get caught up. For more information on Simple Machines, a good
web site is "Jeff's Tribute to Simple Machines":
