NFC News Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge - new book
Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge is a critically acclaimed new book by Mark Yarm to be published on Crown (a division of Random House) on September 6 in the US. With exclusive photos and based on more than 250 interviews, the 600 page book is the definitive look at the Seattle music scene.

Everybody Loves Our Town captures the grunge era in the words of the musicians, producers, managers, record executives, video directors, photographers, journalists, publicists, club owners, roadies, scenesters and hangers-on who lived through it. The book tells the whole story: from the founding of the Deep Six bands to the worldwide success of grunge's big four (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains); from the rise of Seattle's cash-poor, hype-rich indie label Sub Pop to the major-label feeding frenzy that overtook the Pacific Northwest; from the simple joys of making noise at basement parties and tiny rock clubs to the tragic, lonely deaths of superstars Kurt Cobain & Layne Staley.

It includes interviews with Courtney Love, Chris Cornell and members of Nirvana.

The author Mark Yarm was a senior editor at Blender and the idea for the book came about when he wrote an oral history of Sub Pop for the magazine.
