Retro Video: Nirvana
Rediscovering ... Nirvana???
By 1996, I fell in The Smiths and re-found the Cure (for whom I was almost beat up in '89). But by the late-'90's Nirvana had become radio staple, and I was tired of hearing them. From time-to-time I'd pull out Unplugged and escape to 1994, but the band became little more than a period piece.
A couple of years ago, Dirty Funker remixed Nirvana, and for a few months I put "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in my Friday night DJ rotation.
So here it, half way through 2008 and I think I'm ready to rediscover Nirvana again.

I would have love to have posted the actual video, but it seems they all are disabled from reposting by YouTube. So here they are, live, from Letterman.

Quick Hit Album Review: All The Saints
While still a raw around the edges, the band's sound on this album mixes traditional American psychedelic rock with hard-driving Brit-rock. For those who like the comparisons, they are reminiscent of The Black Angels mixed with early-'90's Catherine Wheel.
Tracks are available on the band's MySpace page. The band will be performing on June 20 at Beep Beep and on June 28 at Lenny’s Corndogorama in Atlanta.
Labels: all the saints
