NFC News Experiencing Nirvana - new exhibit at Proud Galleries
Proud Camden presents Experiencing Nirvana; marking the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's untimely death. This exhibition, by photographers Charles Peterson and Steve Double, reveals a rare and intriguing insight into one of the most influential and important rock bands of the modern era. Both Peterson and Double began photographing Nirvana at around the same time, in 1989 when the band had just signed to the Sub Pop label and released their first single ‘Bleach’. They are considered the foremost grunge photographers capturing the birth of the scene and the spirit of Nirvana.

Coinciding with the UK launch of Bruce Pavitt's book of the same name, Proud Galleries is honoured to present Experiencing Nirvana; commemorating the life of Kurt Cobain, the reluctantly anointed "spokesman" for Generation X and Nirvana, who shaped the landscape of popular music while embodying the original, gritty spirit of rock and roll.

The exhibit will run from 27th March - 11th May 2014 at Proud Galleries on Chalk Farm Road in London, England. More info.

NFC News New edition of "Heavier Than Heaven" - out now!
A new, updated edition of the definitive Kurt Cobain biography "Heavier Than Heaven" by Charles R. Cross has just been published. Out on Hyperion, the new paperback contains a new preface by the author to mark the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's passing.

It has been twenty years since Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994. Yet, as acclaimed biographer Charles R. Cross reveals in his new preface to HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN, Cobain's death often feels like a personal loss even to fans born years after. The lasting influence of Cobain's artistic genius makes HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN more relevant now than ever.

Originally published in 2001 and re-released now to coincide with the anniversary, HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN reveals this often misunderstood man who skillfully sought fame, yet detested his own popularity. Cross conducted more than 400 one-on-one interviews; combed through every police and forensic report; and spent three days in isolation with duffel bags full of Cobain's and Courtney Love's intimate diaries, letters, and art. This release also coincides with Cross’s new book Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain (It Books; Hardcover; 3/18/14), a first-person account and analysis of Cobain's life, music, and impact on popular culture.
