Yes, Kurt’s still dead. But so is Jimi Hendrix and Tupac and that hasn’t precluded them from releasing a series of albums since their passing. According to an interview with director Brett Morgan, there’s going to be a release of rarities found in Kurt’s belongings.
These recordings come from the 107 cassette Morgen found while rooting in Kurt’s stuff as he tried to sculpt a narrative for Montage of Heck, his Cobain documentary. What’s on these cassettes? Jams with Courtney. Song fragments. Spoken word bits. Demos from Fecal Matter, a pre-Nirvana band. And God knows what else. It’s not a Nirvana album by any means. It’s more like “hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia.” Bring it on, I say.
