There will never be enough photos of Nirvana, another retrospective ahead
Nirvana is once again the subject of a book of photographs, officially placing them on the spectrum of subjects of import that you wearily tolerate out of respect, probably between "Jann Wenner's thoughts on how the Woodstock generation changed the world or some bull****" and "your cousin's new baby".
Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt is releasing this collection in e-book form, to the joy of 13 year-olds with mustaches everywhere. Entitled Experiencing Nirvana: Grunge in Europe, 1989, the photographs chronicle the band's first European tour. Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll finally get to see what Kurt Cobain looked like while adroitly staring at something just off camera!
All snark aside, this latest in a long, long, long, loooooooooong line of Nirvana-based retrospectives is for a good cause: portions of the sales will go towards supporting The Vera Project, a Seattle-based all-ages volunteer music and arts space. And besides, who else can we expect to just constantly bombard us with Cobain's forlorn visage every few months now that SPIN is no longer in print?
