“So recently, some guys asked me to go and jam with them,” McCartney teased, before bringing out Grohl, Novoselic, and Nirvana’s unofficial fourth member Pat Smear. Casually, McCartney shrugged: “I finally understood that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion.” The four then dove straight into “Cut Me Some Slack”, a bluesy, sludgefest jam with traces of Nirvana and McCartney’s side-project The Fireman. Macca said it best following the four minute whirlwind: “Yep”.
According to a newly launched website, the song will appear on Sound City – Real to Reel, “music from and inspired by” Grohl’s forthcoming film Sound City. Watch footage of the performance below (via The Audio Perv), followed by a brief clip of the studio version.
Update: Grohl and Novoselic discussed the collaboration with Fuse, and you can watch the interview below.
