All the pretty songs

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s the 20th anniversary of Nevermind. In Bloom is an exhibition of Nirvana photos and memorabilia, showing at the Loading Bay Gallery, East London.

Worth checking out. Seeing the photos reminds you how much they were just three guys in a band (some band!). No artifice, no pretence, just raw, direct, honest music. That’s the essence of grunge for me. All the Cobain iconography (and hagiography) since then needs stripping away.
