Don't know if any of you like nirvana or not, but I just got hold of an mp3 of the song that's being released soon. Not sure I agree with the fact it's being released - stinks of a record company cashing in on Kurt - But as a huge fan, I'm still really excited by it! It's not them at there best (didn't make it to an album, after all) but still damn good! If any of you want to listen, you can get it from the downloads bit of my site - www.ecosid.com - interested to hear what you think
Triple J (Aus Radio) has had this song on high rotation - apparently waiting for a lawyer to tell them to stop! hahaha Go JJJ!
To answer your questin Sid, I really like the song. I heard a quote from *can't for the life of me remember the person* that said "it really makes you realise that you will never hear his voice again"...
For me it's kinda haunting.. I wonder what he was feelling when he wrote & recorded it (3 months prior to the suicide).. who "know's they're right?"...
I hate the way a music company will want to rape an artist, over-expose them and wring them out to dry, but hopefully in this case, it's something that will put the final nail in the coffin, so to speak. I feel every artist should have the right to put together 'best of' albums and box sets etc, it just seems more capitalistic when the production line begins in a post-humourous fashion.
Good on Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic for sticking to their guns though. They deserve to maintain control of their art.. Courtney (who I also admire for her individuality, tenacity and perserverance) has come to a compromise and has said "we all love each other again"... Well ain't that sweet!
