Nirvana’s Unplugged In New York was never intended to be the band’s epitaph, but when Kurt joined what his mum called “that stupid club”, that’s exactly what it became: a sombre coda to a career that burned brighter than the singer’s...

Talking to Jonathan Ross the other week, Courtney Love recalled her surprise at being defined by the man she was married to, despite having forged a successful career in her own right. He’d boil his own head before admitting it, but Dave Grohl...

Nirvana: Sliver: The Best of the Box

As the old bastard is prone to reminding us, if Grandad hadn’t gone off to do battle with the Hun then we’d all be speaking German now. More worryingly, if Nirvana hadn’t gone to war with soft rock at the dawn of the ’90s, then it’s...

Nirvana     :    Nirvana

Nirvana : Nirvana

Nirvana : Unplugged In New York - 29/10/94

…WHICH IS where the canonisation starts. There now follows an easy prediction. Kurt Cobain will become one of those revered figures (see also Lennon, Hendrix) around whom there is only the faintest murmur of debate; someone who'll only...

Nirvana : In Utero - 04/09/93

LET'S OPEN up Kurt Cobain and pick at his guts. Let's check how many of his vital organs are pickled and poisoned beyond repair. Let's trepan his cranium, shake out his brain and see how he thinks, what he thinks, if he thinks anymore. Let's carve...

Nirvana : Incesticide - 12/12/92

'INCESTICIDE': A title so indicative of Nirvana's humility, while at the same time bringing home their guilt and self-disgust at this retrospective exercise. And, well, a Christmas-geared bag of oldies and rarities (God -is this album a Rod...

Nirvana : Nirvana - 21/09/91
