Nirvana news thread

So, here goes all those little news which don't "deserve" own topic :)
I come from a country of northern lights, lightless days and nightless nights.
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

MASSIVE NIRVANA EXHIBIT TO OPEN NEXT SPRING IN SEATTLE
Credit: MySpace.com

When you look back on Nineties-era music, aside from the Lou Pearlmann-spawned boy bands that poured vocal slush into our ears at decade’s end, there’s one city, one music scene and really, who are we kidding, one band that people swear by. If you haven’t guessed, we’re talking about Seattle, grunge and Nirvana.

And now, finally, the Experience Music Project—a Seattle music and sci-fi museum that showcases rare artifacts from popular music history—is capturing the band, and time period, in all its slacker glory. It was announced today that an entire exhibit dedicated to Nirvana, titled “Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses,” will be launched at the Seattle museum next spring. This sure-to-be monumental showcase is scheduled to run from April 16-22, 2011.

The exhibit is expected to include more than 200 Nirvana-related artifacts, including a painting that Kurt Cobain did in high school, the reel-to-reel machine that Cobain used to record his earliest bands (Organized Confusion and Fecal Matter) and the yellow cardigan that Cobain wore constantly from 1991 until his death in 1994—not to mention hand-written lyrics, instruments, and countless photos. In a statement today, Krist Novoselic, the band’s bassist and co-founder, said, “It’s great that there will soon be a collection that celebrates (the Seattle grunge scene’s) contribution to music and culture. There’s a story with Nirvana at its center, but it’s a story that also includes the many people, bands and institutions that make up a music community. The show is a celebration of Northwest music.”

Other artifacts in the exhibit will include pieces of the first guitar Cobain destroyed onstage (a Univox Hi-Flyer), Dave Grohl’s Tama Rockstar-Pro drum kit, Krist Novoselic’s Guild acoustic bass guitar and Buck Owens’ American acoustic guitar used during the recording of the band’s legendary MTV Unplugged gig. Steve Fisk, who co-produced the band’s Blew EP (1989), created the soundtrack that fans will hear as they move through the exhibition.

DAVE GROHL ON 80'S HARDCORE:

"I was lucky enough to grow up in Washington, D.C., and see some of the greatest hardcore- punk shows ever,” says Grohl. “Hardcore was born during the Reagan era, when the country was undergoing this horrible conservative shift. The music inspired all us kids to say, ‘Fuck you. I don’t want to be a part of your system.’ I thought my destiny was to work at a furniture warehouse, but then I saw hardcore bands and I realized, ‘I can do this! I don’t even have to be good at playing my instrument!’ ”

1. "Surf Combat" Naked Raygun, 1985
Most hardcore songs in the Eighties were either about Reagan or nothing. This is one of the latter.

2. "Loss for Words" Corrosion of Conformity, 1985
They made Metallica sound like the Spice Girls.

3. "It's Catching Up" NoMeansNo, 1989
Scream, the hardcore band I was in back then, opened up for NoMeansNo in 1987 in Tacoma, Washington.

4. "Who Are You?" Void, 1982
Their shows were so incredibly chaotic. Void were heavy as fuck and sloppy as hell.

5. "Room 13" Black Flag, 1981
I have a faded Black Flag tattoo I tried to give myself when I was 12 that looks like I got shot in the arm with a piece of pencil lead.

6. "Sun God" Squirrel Bait, 1985
I played this recently for [Foo Fighters drummer] Taylor Hawkins. He said, “Wow, was Kurt really into this band? Goddamn if this doesn’t sound like Nirvana.”

7. "I Don't Need Society" D.R.I., 1983
Most of their early songs lasted between 20 and 60 seconds. I saw them at the Rock Against Reagan concert in ’83, on the Mall on July Fourth.

8. "For Want Of" Rites of Spring, 1985
They came with this perfect mix of melody and poetic lyrics. This is a heartbreaking love letter with beautiful, reckless music behind it.

9. "Chartered Trips" Hüsker Dü, 1984
No Hüsker Dü, no Foo Fighters.

10. "At the Movies" Bad Brains, 1983
Without a doubt, the greatest American hardcore band of all time. Four African-American men who influenced everyone in D.C. to start a punk band.
