|NFC News Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge - new book|
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.
