Louder Than War definitive interview with Nirvana … LINK!

You know you are getting old when bands that you remember being the first person to interview (over the phone at Kurt Cobain’s mother’s house when everyone else was ignoring them!) have an exhibition built around them.

Nirvana memorabilia exhibition

Nirvana have now become social history as the new memorabilia exhibition in the group’s hometown of Seattle, Washington celebrates.

The show, titled Nirvana: Taking Punk To The Masses, will pay tribute to the legendary group and its late singer, Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994.

The items on display will include pieces of the first guitar Cobain ever destroyed onstage, a yellow cardigan regularly worn by the star in the 1990s and handwritten lyrics to a number of the band’s songs.

The band’s former bassist Krist Novoselic says, “It’s great that there will soon be a collection that celebrates (Cobain’s) contribution to music and culture.

“There’s a story with Nirvana at its centre, but it’s a story that also includes the many people, bands and institutions that make up a music community.”

The exhibition will run at Seattle’s Experience Music Project from April 16-22.

  4. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  7. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  8. Thank you for some other informative site. Where else may just I get that kind of info written in such a perfect method? I have a project that I am just now running on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such information.
