  1. Shame. I went to their first gig in the UK and reviewed it, which was in Hammersmith’s Clarendon pub. I also interviewed them. A few years later I went to their apartment in New York to talk to them and also out to a few clubs. They played me a tape of the first Nirvana recordings, which hadn’t yet been released. They also turned me onto John Cage and a number of other artists. I’m sure they’ll both fare well.
