NFC News The Rough Guide to Nirvana: Press release
THE ROUGH GUIDE TO NIRVANA

June 15, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Bleach, an album that unknowingly would launch three young Seattleites into international fame. Even 15 years after Kurt Cobain’s death, Nirvana continues to maintain and grow a devoted fan base. The Rough Guide to Nirvana tells the story of this extraordinary, all too short-lived group, from Krist Novoselic’s early influences, to the last days of Kurt Cobain and the rise of Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters. This guide is the essential companion to one of modern music’s greatest bands. “Come as You Are” and relive the birth of grunge all over again.

“Their trajectory went from wildly improbable, to amazing… to tragedy. What was left was their music, which has refused to go away, because there is something real there that people want, something that the sterile, overproduced corporate-machine-made cotton candy that dominates our pop charts is lacking.”
- Jack Endino, from the foreword to The Rough Guide to Nirvana

NFC News Blog post on official Nirvana MySpace
Earlier last month, the following was posted on the official Nirvana MySpace:

"Thanks Nirvana fans for all the support!

Some of you may have read a story in a UK publication, about the 1992 Reading Festival show being released on DVD in May. This is not true! Save your hard earned cash! This is an illegal bootleg, not produced from the original masters, or sanctioned by the band/estate.

The official Nirvana ‘Live At Reading’ DVD (to be announced in a future posting) will include restored video with pristine visual quality, re-mastered audio from the original audio masters in TRUE 5.1 surround sound, and a wealth of exclusive bonus features.

We will deliver you a package worthy of this landmark concert that will put any inferior bootlegs to shame. Well worth the wait! Stay tuned for more official updates.
