Wrapping up the Nirvana tribute with Nirvana Tributes

Again, I'm sorry and surprised that this hasn't been more popular.....I wish it had been, but as I said before I am almost NEVER "shocked", things that I think willl be extremely well-recieved are not, and just the opposite, too, something that I think may just earn a nibble, explodes.....just goes to show that I have NO idea what is going on in the minds of everyone else, and it's ALL good.....imagine, had I done the whole month of Nirvana as I had kicked around.....I''d cut my readership in half (to about 6?)....so anyway, this is it for now, some very goofy Nirvana tributes to send this uout on the lighter side...these links will probably hang around for a whild, so should you decide to pick up some of them letr they should still be......

Pay for Smells Like - A Tribute To Nirvana . mp3Briefly three "tribute" albums, you know they are not my favorites......genally so stupid that they are readilly dismissed, or such slavish copies as to be not worth the effort......some of both here, I fear, but some NIrvana-freaks may like these, so why not?

First and best is "Smells  Like Bleach" which at least includes some legit artists, Vibrators, UK Subs, Flipper, Agent Orange, and more, highlighted, perhaps byt Burning Brides "Somthing In the Way"......

Next is "Smells LIke Nirvava", which features slavish but subpar versions of the classics: The Butchers doing "In BLoom".....Kristen Krush tackling  "Polly".......Beki Bondage (I have an album by her here somewhere I think) taking in "Teen Spirit" AND "Lithium"......stuff like that, give it a  listen, they are attemting to tribute Nirvana much the same way taht I am.

Lastly, I have a freebie dic given away by SPIN Magazine on the 20th anniversary of the release of "Nevrmind", this entitled "Newermind", see this one around quit a bit.....highlights include Titus Andronicus taking on "Breed", Amanda Palmer's take on "Polly", and some surprisese such as Foxy Shazam taking on "Drain You", and Buthc Walker & the Black Widows trying their hand at "In Bloom"......again, no means a classic, fans of Nirvana and Tribute albums in general may enjoy these, let me know..........

Nirvana nirvanaAnything here "do it" for you? if so let me know......my favorite Nirvana cover would likely be "Something In the Way" by Burning Brides, but a unique and VERY difficult band to cover.....a testimony to thei greatness......again, surprised that this whole thing hasn't been more popular, but I just NEVER know, and that is what makes this interesting.......please, please, please, keep the requestsand the like coming......I THINK tomorrow I have a surprise coming up from the legend that is DaveSez, so you won't want to miss THAT, no way!


Obviousy I love the music of Nirvana, it spoke to me, at least, in a way that few otheres have. Hope you enjoy thte odds and ends I've tried to select this week, they deserve it........not only culturally, but personally, as they/Nevermind singlehandely made this 30 year old see that rock n roll was FAR fom dead, just resting, and as long as there are always who "get it", Kurt Cobain, Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan, Jack White......there will always be ideas which can be expounded into wonderful artwork for us to love.......it's always been that way, and should ALWAYS be.......that is why I am here.....to examine the past, present, and future, and I hope I make that clear......it's ONLY rock n roll (but, for the most part, I DO like it!)

Sleep well and welome to another weekend......coming up soon: These Arms Are Snakes,Wesley Willis, the longdelayed Yo La Tengo Mega Post, the long delayed Motorhead Post, and of courswe my usual stone-unknown gems, punks who slipped through the cracks, just general oddballs, and more and more of the stuff that has given this blog it's charachter (assuming it has ANY).......I thank everyone who reads, comment, shares (Dave Sez, YEAH, but also Sonic and Psychlist (MIA) and Mark (stoner rock king), Doug Wofsey and SO MANY others, special thanks to "Dasiy" who called me "Sweetie" in the comments.........LOTS AND LOTS OF OTHER contributors and friends, love you all and hop you stay with me for a while.....please request and comment, and continue to make this a FUN place to be
