CD(cassette) review: Late! - Pocketwatch

Today I am here doing a review of a somewhat rare cd(In truth is not a cd, but a cassette) and unknown by many people,But the first question is
Who's Late!?

Late! a.k.a David Grohl
Late! is the pseudonym used by David Grohl (of the former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman), this album was made ​​between 1990/1991 and originally recorded by David in secret, and was released in 1992.
There is  not a CD with a lot of story to be told, most of the songs as written by David, and one of the songs is very interesting, the track "Friend of a Friend" is often interpreted as a kind of posthumous tribute to Kurt Cobain, even if it is not possible by the time the song was made.
In fact the music speaks of David's first impressions about her life with Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic, his new bandmates. This track was recorded in secret in 1990.

The lyrics talk about the behavior of Cobain
"He needs a quiet room
With a lock to keep hin in
It's just a quiet room
And he's there

He plays an old guitar
With a coin found by the phone
It was his friends guitar
And he played "

PS: the old guitar refers the acoustic guitar of Cobain, Grohl stumbled upon an acoustic guitar owned by Cobain.

Another part probably refers to Krist:

"He's Never Been in Love
But He Knows Just What Love Is
He says nevermind
And no one speaks

He Thinks he drinks too much
Cause When He tells his two best friends
"I think I drink too much"
No one speaks
No one speaks
No one speaks"

This song was later re-recorded the album In Your Honor Foo Fighters in 2005 and the band's live album Skin And Bones in 2007.
Personally I love this music, I am a big fan of Nirvana and grunge in general and this cd shows a David Grohl that people dont' know.

I will leave were this song:
