Debut Album by the Foo Fighters with (then recent) ex-Nirvana member Dave Grohl! Laquers Cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering!
The self-titled debut album by the Foo Fighters was originally released in
1995. At the time, the only official member of the group was Dave Grohl, who
wrote and recorded the entire album himself (except X-Static - Greg Dulli played
Following the demise of Nirvana, and after a brief stint with Tom Petty and the
Heartbreakers, musician Dave Grohl entered Robert Lang Studios with producer
Barrett Jones in October 1994 to record some songs he had written.
In an attempt to keep his anonymity, Grohl planned to release the songs under
the name Foo Fighters, and soon recruited former Sunny Day Real Estate members;
bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith, as well as Nirvana touring
guitarist, and former Germs member, Pat Smear, to create a band that could
perform the songs live. That spring, the Foo Fighters embarked on their first
ever United States tour with Hovercraft, supporting Mike Watt.
To further establish the fact that Foo Fighters were now a full fledged band,
photos of the entire lineup appeared in the liner notes, despite Grohl being the
album's only contributor.
