Throughout Dave Grohl's time in Nirvana he continued to write and record his own music, usually during downtime between touring or recording commitments. In July 1991, a month or so after completing recording on the Nevermind album in California Grohl decided to put some more of his own material to tape. "After recording Nevermind, I went home for a few days and recorded at a local D.C. studio" he recalled in a later interview.
That local studio was WGNS Studios operated by Geoff Turner, the front man of post-hardcore D.C. band Grey Matter trying his hand at music production. In the space of one day together they recorded four song titled 'Hell's Garden', 'Winnebago', 'Bruce' and 'Milk'. No vocals were recorded for the track 'Bruce' and the lyrics of the track 'Winnebago' were credited to Geoff. Partway through the song Dave alluded to this, quickly saying "Thanks for the lyrics, Geoff".
The four songs were added to the six recorded across two sessions with Barrett Jones and released on the 'Late - Pocketwatch' release.
