|NFC News No Seattle - Forgotten sounds of the Northwest Grunge Era|
This compilation features some of the many divergent bands who emerged out of the North-west during this era. Intensely researched and documented this album features many bands who have now disappeared from history after releasing maybe just a couple of singles, or an album, or even never making it onto vinyl Ė alongside some bands that continue to this day.
All Roads lead to Nirvana: 17 of the bands featured here played alongside Nirvana in the period 1987-93. All 23 bands featured feature members who shared a stage with Nirvana. Jack Endino (The Ones) produced 37 Nirvana songs. Dave Foster (Helltrout) was Nirvana's 3rd drummer. Bundle of Hiss became TAD who played more gigs with Nirvana than any other band.
