Fecal Matter was a short lived punk rock band from Aberdeen, Washington.
1985-86[edit | edit source]
Fecal Matter was formed in early 1985 by guitarist Kurt Cobain, bassist Dale Crover, and drummer Greg Hokanson. The band recorded a demo on a 4 track recorder at Cobain's Aunt Mari Earle's house. Greg Hokanson departed the band in December of 1985. Buzz Osborne and Mike Dillard joined the band in 1986.
Breakup and Nirvana[edit | edit source]
The band disbanded in February of 1986. Kurt Cobain wanted to form a band with Krist Novoselic. Cobain gave Novoselic a Fecal Matter demo. Several months later, Novoselic finally listened to the demo and agreed to form a band together. They had a Creedance Clearwater Revival cover band, called The Sellouts, that eventually disbanded a couple weeks later. In 1987 Kurt and Krist decided to make another band with Kurt on the guitar, Krist on the bass, and Aaron Burckhard on the drums. They had a couple name changes before settling in on Nirvana like Pen Cap Chew, Throat Oyster, Bliss, Skid Row, Windowpane, and Ted Ed Fred.
