Revue de presse

"We encourage you to put on your pit-stained smiley-face shirt with the X'ed-out eyes, crank up Bleach and enjoy." Images from Experiencing Nirvana illustrated an article on Kurt Cobain in The Financial Times (March) 'The man who signed Nirvana to their first record deal remembers his sensitive late friend and Nirvana's breakthrough European tour.' Team Rock --Vice

Présentation de l'éditeur

The e-book, Experiencing Nirvana: Grunge in Europe, 1989, is both a photo journal and a grunge rock microhistory – an
 inside look into a crucial eight-day period in the touring life of Nirvana, and two other Seattle bands, as seen through the eyes of Bruce Pavitt, the founder of Sub Pop, the Seattle label that first signed Nirvana in 1988.

The dramatic eight days covered in this book, from November 27 through December 4, 1989, represent a turning point for Nirvana. In this brief period, the young band goes from breaking up in Rome to winning over the influential music press in London at Sub Pop’s LameFest UK showcase, setting the stage for their imminent popularity.

On November 27, 1989, when Pavitt and business partner Jon Poneman arrived to meet the band in Rome, they were almost finished with a grueling six week tour of Europe. Although determined to promote their grungy, riff-heavy debut album, Bleach, their travels with fellow Sub Pop act Tad had left them exhausted. Providing label support, Pavitt and Ponemon did their best to revive the spirits of a frustrated and downcast Kurt Cobain, who then managed to continue to London where Nirvana played the biggest and most important show of their career to date.

LameFest UK, held at the 2,000-capacity Astoria Theatre, featured three Seattle Sub Pop acts: Nirvana, Tad and popular headliners Mudhoney. Although Nirvana opened the show, their heart-pounding performance won over the crowd as well as the powerful British press, who went on to proclaim that Nirvana was, “Sub Pop’s answer to The Beatles.” It was then that the world’s attention began to focus on the band that would become the biggest rock act of their generation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A time & a place, gone with the wind....... 29 mai 2013
Par Johnny Deep - Publié sur Amazon.com

But luckily preserved in uber freshness by Bruce Pavitt & Co. in this awesome photo journal.
I especially appreciated the collected essays from the always entertaining British press that center around the Seattle scene and the bands this book documents: Tad, Mudhoney, and Nirvana. Pretty cool to be able to read some ancient Everett True over-fawning piece about Mark Arm's latest mosh-pit escapades. The Brits can fawn like no one else...
But you really came for the pictures of Kurt right? And they're pretty fantastic. He really was an extraordinary looking gent -- and a great singer too. Pics of Kurt exhausted and burnt out somewhere in Italy. Pics of a revived and relieved Kurt chatting casually w/ another punk rock fan about vinyl. A human being.
Pavitt treats the subject manner w/ delicacy and respect, and that's very cool. It's really just a very rad book. It's not pretentious or over-the-top -- just like the Seattle scene & bands that all changed so many peoples lives in the 20th Century. I've got to say its really a nice tribute to the whole scene.
I have friends that always talk about the Lamefest in London (the final concert documented in this book) being the most incredible show they ever got to see. "Nirvana > Tad > Mudhoney" was the bill. Easy to see why.
Saw Mudhoney twice a couple weeks ago; they're still more vital and brutal live than 99% of the bands out there. Its just cool to be able to pick up a book like this and see a document of them in their beginnings.
Mark Arm looks EXACTLY the same. Freaky.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Uplifting Nirvana story ? ... Hell Yeah! 21 mai 2013
Par Adam Farish - Publié sur Amazon.com

Best Nirvana story never told!

I love this book. Growing up as a teenager in Seattle in the 90's was saturated with Grunge lore. So much of it centered around the tragic death of Kurt Cobain. This is the early history that only a select few got to see. It's a history lesson in the last big bang that happened in music.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rare glimpse... 12 juin 2013
Par Kevin V Dickey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Only rarely in history is The Moment of an artist's public transformation from 'unknown' to 'possessed' documented by an attentive witness. And even rarer still is a witness who follows through with the production of a reflective, honest and eloquent account for all the world to share. In this case, Pavitt is both witness and instigator, and a fine story-teller with an eye for the archetypal. This book is the record of that Moment as it happened to a small group of young men who would go on to create the music and consciousness that defined an Age.

Get it, and read it, When you do, you will feel the same spark and fire that launched Nirvana into legend. And if you're like me, you'll think more seriously about writing some songs and starting a band.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Behind the scenes of Nirvana early days 29 mai 2013
Par Darin Leong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
If you are in to music history then this book is highly recommended. It follows Nirvana through the early days before they became superstars. The candid shots of Kurt Cobain and others give you a close and personal view of their lives as they toured europe with bands Tad and Mudhoney. The book gives you a great feel for what it was like and Bruce Pavitt shares great anecdotal tales and insight in to the grunge music scene as it was beginning. If you grew up enjoying Nirvana and grunge then you will love this book.
