Album: At Home
. . .
In 1992, after I went back to Nirvana’s debut, Bleach, it was pretty obvious that one of the standout tracks was “Love Buzz,” and that “Love Buzz” — which really didn’t sound like anything else on Bleach — was a cover written by someone named Robbie van Leeuwen, which further research told me was the songwriter for a band called Shocking Blue.
Wait. Shocking Blue, that seemed familiar. Who was that again? Oh that’s right, they were the band who did that song “Venus,” which was all over the AM radio when we were kids. That’s right. I remember now. They were like, Dutch or something Man, I haven’t heard that song in a long time.
