NFC News Flipper to release new record with Krist Novoselic
In a Seattle Weekly article, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic writes about his experience playing with iconic punk-rockers Flipper for the past two years. "In 2006 Flipper were asked by Thurston Moore to play the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in the U.K. That's when yours truly was invited to play bass", says Novoselic. "We followed the gig with a tour of the U.K. and Ireland opening for the Melvins. It was a lot of fun. After the tour, I wanted to keep playing with the fellows, but I didn't have the desire to be in a nostalgia band. So we started playing new material. There was a spark of inspiration within our group". With Krist Novoselic on board, Flipper have recorded a new album with Jack Endino, and are currently in the process of mixing. According to Krist, the product will be "a grunge record for the 21st century" and is to be released sometime this year. More here. The band is scheduled to play in Seattle and Tacoma this weekend.

NFC News San Diego man looks back on Nirvana's '91 OTR in-store show
An article on historic concerts in the San Diego Reader features a lengthy account, complete with visuals and testimonials, of Nirvana's 10-24-91 Off the Record in-store performance, near the start of their first national headline tour. "Right when we found out Nirvana was definitely coming, Nevermind jumped from number twenty to number seven on the Billboard charts. At that point, they decided there'd only be three in-stores for the whole tour - Seattle, San Diego and New York. For the one in Seattle, they purposely leaked out the wrong date and location, so the actual gig could stay a secret until the last possible minute", remembers OTR's Phil Galloway. "Part of the deal was that we had to provide the equipment, a twelve string guitar, a PA. The plan was for them to do an all-acoustic set. Geffen Records or some radio network was also going to record it. Things on our side fell through because we had all right handed instruments and so Kurt went ahead and played electric guitar. They ended up doing a whole forty minute hard rock set." Read full article here.
