Before Eddie Vedder made it big with Pearl Jam, he did several demos which probably got put on a dusty shelf for a few years. Now Antiquiet has released 13 tracks of material that was recorded in 1988 and 1989.

In the music, you hear Vedder singing both by himself and with the band Bad Radio, which he played with at that time. One of those songs is a very early “Betterman,” performed live.

After all these years, how did the music end up online? The story goes that when Vedder was working at San Diego Petroleum, he made a tape for a colleague, who has now shared it with Antiquiet.
