The idea of anti-Go-Go Dancers is amazing and it’s 2013! In 1991, that is ahead of the fucking curve.
Nirvana - Breed (Live at the Paramount 1991)
Kurt, on a whim, asked his Olympia friends Ian [Dickson] and Nikki [McClure| if they’d care to dance on stage with Nirvana.
“More evidence about Nirvana being a feminist band,” comments Rich Jensen. “Ian and Nikki were just indie kids, a boy and girl, from Olympia. They danced like hell, I mean with spirit, but they weren’t like strippers. Nirvana wasn’t macho, so they had anti-go-go dancers.”
The pair must have looked a strange sight: Ian with his dark glasses and skinny frame aping Sixties moves, Nikki lost in her own private
world, dancing without fear. Nikki got Ian to wear a T-shirt with the word ‘boy’ written large on it, while she wore one boasting ‘girl’. Gold Mountain made sure the cameras were kept away as much as possible from the pair.
