NFC News Seattle Times: 'Nirvana reissue is heaven for fans'
In an article just posted by the Seattle Times, Charles R. Cross (who's written a number of books and articles about Nirvana, most notably the Kurt Cobain biography Heavier Than Heaven) speaks highly of the forthcoming Nevermind 20 treatment: this set gives us fascinating insight into how the songs were crafted.

Cross further writes: For Nirvana devotees, the "Super Deluxe" set represents the most essential release in their wide catalog. The hard-core fan base has been clamoring for a release like this for years, and particularly wanting that great Halloween show on something other than a bootleg (it should be noted that the video recording never surfaced in collector's circles).

Be sure to check out the complete article here, courtesy of the Seattle Times.

NFC News Q&A with Krist Novoselic about Nevermind 20th
Billboard just did a great Q&A with Krist Novoselic in connection with the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind album - a topic that the interview focuses on. One of the more interesting questions pertains to how much Krist was involved with the 20th anniversary edition:

Krist: I worked with our management, Silva Artist Management. They were working with the label. So we were discussing different concepts. The idea was to have a DVD and package that shows how "Nevermind," which I'm told is a seminal record, came about. So you can watch a concert of the band. We had this concert that we never really did anything with. It was filmed in 1991. So we worked on that -- mixing it and editing it. And then we collected documents.

Read the full interview over at billboard.com.

Also check out their current issue - a cover story called "The Lessons of Grunge" with interviews from other people of the scene. More info.

NFC News GQ's oral history of Nevermind - extended edition now available
In a recent issue, GQ published the oral history of Nevermind.

The extended version of their "Nevermind" oral history -- for which they spoke with everyone surrounding the album including Dave Grohl and Courtney Love -- is available as a kindle single from Amazon now:

The Moment We Found Nirvana: An Oral History of One of the Greatest Bands of All Time (Kindle Single)

Just 5 bucks! Buy the 25-page Kindle book from the above link. Short summary below:

The Moment We Found Nirvana consists of two parts. The first, an oral history of the making of Nirvana's Nevermind, compiles the reminiscence of nearly all the important players: surviving band members, the producer and engineer, Kurt Cobain's friends and family, record execs, and of course, Courtney Love.

No one pulls punches. To wit, the Melvins' Buzz Osborne: "We were futureless people. And then to get to a point where you're buying cars with a credit card and selling 50 million albums worldwide and then you marry a swamp beast and then you end up dead?" Or Mark Kates (Geffen Records Publicity): "Like, what's the other most important album that's come out since then?"

The second part is both somewhat beside the point and a lot more fun. It consists of out-takes from Courtney Love's interview, and if you think the woman has lost any of her edgy logorrhea, think again. For Nirvana fans, this piece provides another crucial entry in the wealth of literature that has sprung up around the band since the mid-1990s. For the curious pedestrian, it amounts to a tantalizingly compact collection of the thoughts and memories of those who were there. --Jason Kirk
