7/3/92 - Madrid, Spain.
“We spent some time away from each other just to do our own things, but we’re looking forward to getting back to how things were, lock ourselves away and work. Our new record’s just gotta sound different I’ve been on this big rant lately of how transition is natural, continental drift, the seasons, the weather’s different every day, people grow older and change. When I think of ‘Nevermind’ now, I think of interviews and being famous. Now I’m focusing on this new record and not even considering anything that’s happened, and maybe we can come out absolved.” - Krist Novoselic.
