Chronic Cover Songs for 420: Suede Dudes Sing Nirvana's "Moist Vagina"
Editor's note: If you grew up in South Florida, you've lived a delightfully half-baked existence. You've definitely smoked the stickiest crippy and the worst Jamaican schwag. County Grind got all stoned and thought, why not ask these toasty South Florida musicians to give us a taste of their favorite pot-inspired songs in preparation for 420? This Chronic Cover series introduces you to both songs about weed and local talents. For the full list, click here.
Fort Lauderdale scuzzy garage rock-loving quartet Suede Dudes deliver the goods with this mucky rendition of rare Nirvana tune "Moist Vagina." Originally, the song was released as a B-side to the "All Apologies"/"Rape Me" double-A side in 1993. "Moist Vagina" captures Kurt Cobain's more jumbled moments, the kind that only a true Nirvana diehard can appreciate.
Since the guys from Suede Dudes took the already gargled lyrics and made them even more unintelligible, we thought "what the hey," let's spell it all out for our kind reader:
"She had a moist vagina/I particularly enjoyed the circumference/I'll be sucking walls of her anus/Of her anus/I prefer her to any other/Marijuana (x3)." Sounds like an excerpt from Dr. Alex B. Comfort's illustrated '70s sex manual, The Joy of Sex, paraphrased by Cheech and Chong, doesn't it?
"Moist Vagina" is one of Cobain's more perverse sentiments, whether it was a tribute to the joys of cunnilingus with Courtney Love's heart-shaped box or Cobain's incessant love of sucking down a big fatty (that's really up to you to decide). And we congratulate the Suede Dudes for tackling such provocative subject matter.
Suede Dudes also add yet another layer of dingy white noise to a song that was already covered in heaps of sonic grime. Coupled with ominous guitar strums and ghastly vocals, Suede Dudes have solidified the essence of Kurt Cobain's effort on this cover. Here is a tune worthy of wrapping your lips around a girthy spliff and exhaling like President Clinton.
The Suede Dudes will be part of the mammoth Record Story Day festivities occurring this Saturday at Radio-Active Records. Why not act incorrigible and yell this one out as a request?
