Kurt Cobain Revisited

Some famous people fade from memory once they pass away. In many cases it is because their lives were an open book with nothing new to learn. Other people continue to spark interest years later and this is probably because the public never knew the "real story," behind the personality. Several names spring to mind: James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley.

Kurt Cobain is another. On May 3rd, a new documentary film was shown on HBO, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. NPR, in an interview with the film's director, Brett Morgan, tells us
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, looks beyond that well-known story. It gives motion to Cobain's artwork and photographs, and spends time with his media-averse family. And it's a film that is, at times, hard to watch.

Rolling Stone magazine projected massive interest in the soundtrack to the film because it includes an previously unreleased 12-minute acoustic track.

We have an order in for the companion book to the film and we will order the soundtrack and DVD when they are released.
