Oliver: Nirvana - Drain You [Live] (23 February 1992)
A completist's selection given that this track already turned up on a Peel Session. This live recording from their Halloween 1991 performance at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle was included on the Come As You Are single.
What the radio play didn't include, as this video shows, were the BOY/GIRL dancers, which make this performance look like a grunge update of Mud performing Tiger Feet on Top of the Pops circa 1974 with dance accompaniment from their road crew.
