via Sub Pop’s Tumblr
Nirvana’s original contract with Sub Pop. Six hundred bucks well spent—not that we had it at the time.
If you’re interested in grunge, the music industry or Nirvana, today is a really cool day. Sub Pop took to Tumblr to post the original contract signed by Nirvana, in which the band recieved $600 advance, a first-year $12,000 option and a second-year $24,000 option. All, of course, recoupable against royalties. Shout outs to Sub Pop for releasing this rock n roll relic.
