Kathleen Hanna and Kim Gordon talk about Kurt Cobain in ‘The Punk Singer.’
"I listened to a lot of Nirvana, Hole, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Pixies, obviously the Pumpkins. It was pretty aggressive. And at that time I was getting into Riot Grrrl and all those things, so there was a bit of ‘I am woman, hear me roar.’ [laughs] It was a mental thing, too. Nirvana changed my life." - Nicole Fiorentino.

"June 7, 1995. 1:15 AM.
You arrive home after a year abroad. You expect your family to greet you, but the house is empty. Something’s not right. Where is everyone? And what’s happened here?
Gone home is an interactive exploration simulator. Interrogate every detail of a seemingly normal house to discover the story of the people who live there. Open any drawer and door. Pick up objects and examine them to discover clues. Uncover the events of one family’s lives by investigating what they’ve left behind.”
Coming this October 8th, Sonic Youth’s very own Lee Ranaldo will have a new album out titled ‘Last Night on Earth.’
"Last call everrrr!” a bartender hollered minutes before Maxwell’s, the Hoboken club that booked and nurtured bands including R.E.M. and Nirvana, closed its doors for the last time early Thursday morning. A block party raged outside the music hub the preceding afternoon as a soundcheck teased what would be the evening’s standout: a reunion 35 years in the making.
Reached at his home by phone, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. recalled a disarming and encouraging crowd the night in 1986 they opened for Steve Albini’s Big Black.
"It’s just the first place we ever felt welcomed as a band," he said, adding that he met Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore that night. “It wasn’t so easy for us to find any fans. So that was like the most sympathetic audience we’d ever played.”
Nirvana played twice at Maxwell’s, once in 1989 and another time in 1990.
"When I was 17, I won a ‘Triple J’ comp and went on tour. The Foo Fighters, Sonic Youth, Rancid, Beastie Boys, and Pavement were all on the tour (1995.) The Foo Fighters tour manager took us under his wing and let us seek refuge in the Foo Fighter’s air conditioned dressing room."
"July 25, my birthday’s today, July July." - Happy 55th Birthday, Thurston Moore!
