    This was Nirvana's first single. It is a cover of a song by the Dutch band Shocking Blue

    Shocking Blue, with its lead singer Mariska Veres, was a fairly influential Dutch psych rock band formed in The Hague in 1967. They had numerous international hit singles and sold over 13.5 million records by 1973 before disbanding. Nirvana recorded a cover version of this song for its 1988 debut single, released on Sub Pop in the USA. It was described by Sub Pop as being "heavy pop sludge". -- Read the legend of Kurt Cobain hand-delivering the band’s first Sub Pop single, “Love Buzz," ( a cover of a song by Shocking Blue) to KEXP and then calling in a request for the track from a gas station payphone.: https://www.historylink.org/file/20790 Have a request?

    Mariska Veres, lead singer, was born on this day in 1948! Shocking Blue was a fairly influential Dutch psych rock band formed in The Hague in 1967. They had numerous international hit singles and sold over 13.5 million records by 1973 before disbanding. But most famously, the first Nirvana song every played on KEXP was a Shocking Blue cover, called “Love Buzz.”

    Earlier in the summer my wife and I took our son out west from Kentucky to visit a few national parks as he just graduated high school and is going into environmental science. We flew into Seattle and were able to pop by KEXP, even though no one was there. It was super rad to see the space you work in as well as the gathering space, which was difficult to envision. Upon arrival, I immediately put on KEXP who played my dumb request and returned my email welcoming us to the city. Later we found ourselves in Capitol hill and standing in front of John's side hustle, which was too packed for my comfort, but what a cool spot. Thank you for kicking off our trip right. We felt so welcome and Listened to KEXP as we drove through Aberdeen, Astoria, The Redwood Forest, Portland, The PCH, San Francisco, and Yosemite. Now my freshman in College tunes in all day long. I did not realize that Love Buzz was a cover. Would you play the original Love Buzz by Shocking Blue? ~ jeffery in Kentucky ===============
