NFC News Nirvana for 'Christmas no. 1' - new campaign launched
Our British friends have launched a campaign to get Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on the no. 1 slot on the charts for Christmas week in the UK. From Spin:

The hotly debated 'Christmas No. 1' slot almost always goes to the debut single from The X Factor's newest winner, with the reality show's unstintingly stodgy Matt Cardle grabbing the honor last year.

In 2009, though, a grassroots Facebook campaign called "Rage Against the X Factor" improbably helped Rage Against the Machine's 1992 political rocker "Killing in the Name" beat Simon Cowell's latest septuagenarian-friendly selection to the holiday top spot.


Read the full story here. To support the effort to get Nirvana to #1, check the official Facebook group for the campaign - a group that has gathered more than 35,000 followers within a few days.

To get Nirvana to #1, make sure you buy Smells Like Teen Spirit on iTunes, Amazon or other online retailers between December 18 and 24. More info is available from a FAQ at the aforementioned Facebook page.

NFC News Godspeed: The Kurt Cobain graphic novel - now as iPad app
Kurt Cobain: The Graphic Novel - a controversial book released a few years back is now available as an iPad app. Click here for a review of the app. Short snippet:

To me, this feels like a real comic book, and, in my opinion, it is a truly brilliant use of the iPad’s screen. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and this graphic novel holds true to that. The art work is dark, detailed, and tell most of the story by its self. A simple double tap of the screen on any of the tiles will bring it full screen, and from there, users can swipe left or right to read it frame by frame. This feature makes the digital version stand out over the print version and really improves the experience as a reader.
