A newspaper called The Spokesman-Review recently published an
article about Krist Novoselic's new book and his political work.
The article also details a book signing Krist did this past Monday
at Auntie's Bookstore in Spokane, Washington. At the singing he

'I'm arguing for more democracy, but what I'd
like to see is a reinvention. And the analogy that I bring up is
that once music becomes predictable and a formula to sustain the
establishment, people stop buying music, they tune out, they become
cynical,' Novoselic said from his home outside of Naselle,
Wash., near the mouth of the Columbia River. To read the full story,

Paul Anka, of all people, has made a cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.
This version is obviously ... quite different from the original and can
best be described as a sort of jazz version of the song. It is included with
Anka's new album Rock Swings which was just released. It also includes
covers of classic songs by R.E.M., Soundgarden, Van Halen and The Cure among
others. You can listen to short samples here.
Apparently, Paul Anka also performed the cover on David Letterman a few days ago.
Thanks to Tammy, Justin and Chris for the news.
