Not a bad book, albeit an awfully titled one, but I d not have bought if I d browsed it at the bookstore rather than ordering online There s some interesting photography but the small format doesn t lend itself to Lavine s work, and it s overly focused on his early Seattle street kids work, which takes up too much of the book without offering a lot of variety My favorite photog of this time is Charles Peterson, Sub Pop s go to guy from the mid 80 s to 90 s, and his work and books are vastly Not a bad book, albeit an awfully titled one, but I d not have bought if I d browsed it at the bookstore rather than ordering online There s some interesting photography but the small format doesn t lend itself to Lavine s work, and it s overly focused on his early Seattle street kids work, which takes up too much of the book without offering a lot of variety My favorite photog of this time is Charles Peterson, Sub Pop s go to guy from the mid 80 s to 90 s, and his work and books are vastly better.I got turned on to Lavine from his photos of bands I loved during the late 1980 s Swallow, The Fluid, Blood Circus, Mudhoney and his archetypical work for Sonic Youth on their epic Daydream Nation 2xLP All that stuff is here, sadly in too small of a format to appreciate There s a few I hadn t seen that were a nice surprise U Men, Meat Puppets, and a few others, but not enough to make this book a keeper rather than a glance through curiosity.The other focus of the book is Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, a topic which continues to oversaturate the music world 20 years after his passing Photos of a guy who hated to be photographed just seem odd and out of place, and none are ground breaking or earth shattering.The long winded forward, best skipped, is by the ever present know it all of indie rock, Thurston Moore He s in typical blathering form here, trying as usual to prove how cool, hip and connected he is with the whole scene, spouting half truths, myths, and made up stuff as much as anything worthwhile, calling far too many of the bands skum rock Were he to be banned from ever writing again, the world would be a better place Fortunately the book doesn t suffer by skipping straight to the pictures Grunge is a great collectors item for anyone entranced by the Pacific north west American music scene of the 1980s and 1990s Text introducing the book, written by Thurtson Moore, a veteran of the scene and photographs by Michael Lavine, the most notorious photographer of the grunge period make this book a great pleasure to look through. I got this as a Christmas gift and I love it The time of grunge was a wonderful space and the trip down memory lane actually made me cry The photographs capture the fashion, temperament, and a spirit that I think is long gone now This book should definitely be a part of anyone s collection who knows what I mean when I say heart shaped box, ever wore ripped jeans with thermals underneath, and felt a hole in their heart when Kurt Cobain passed away. |Free Kindle ♍ Grunge ☲ More than a decade after his death, alienated, awkward, heavily eye lined Kurt Cobain continues to sit front and center in the arena of popular culture, as the subject of books, music, fashion, gossip, and inspiration for major motion pictures and documentaries Together with flannelsporting, music obsessed communities emerging in the late s and early s from the chilly Pacific Northwest, Nirvana, Sound Garden, and Pearl Jam changed the scene with wild aggressive sounds and truly alternative recordsAuthor Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth who introduced Kurt Cobain t David Geffen Geffen Records , a meeting that resulted in Nirvana s first major debut, Nevermind, in September , which by December was selling , copies a week writes about the discovery of Seattle punk youth, the seminal bands that defined the movement, the exploitation of the subculture, and the backlash of grunge, as well as the death of his longtime collaborator and intimate Cobain A short text by Thurston Moore but well written in a musician non writer sort of way The real appeal of this book is Lavine s photos of the 1980 s punk scene in Seattle and his pictures of the bands to come out of it later in the 80 s and then on into the 90 s. Thurston Moore s introduction was lame but I really like photos of people and these ones are well done even if you don t like the grunge scene It did make me feel a bit uncool though. Gorgeous collection of photographs of a truly inspiring era, would ve loved if their was a bitin the reading department though
