According to Greg Prato, grunge has officially died. You can read all about it in his new oral history, Grunge Is Dead. He spoke with a bunch of old grungey hipsters (some of them are famous rock stars and one of them is our boss) and put their stories together to create his new book.
Prato will sign copies of his new book at Easy Street Records & Cafe in West Seattle on Saturday, 25-April at 6pm (4559 California Ave SW). This event is free and open to public (for more information, visit Easy Street.
Obits played live on the Evan “Funk” Davies show on WFMU last night (Apr. 21st). And, because we live in the future now, you can listen to this performance by programming the internet for here.
They play nine songs off their fantastic debut record album I Blame You.
You can (and should) also listen to this performance, as well as Obits’ first show back in Jan. ‘08 at the Cake Shop in NYC, and in the near future (we’re guessing) more Obits live recordings in the Obits-curated section of the Free Music Archive. By the way, the Free Music Archive is totally worth checking out for all sorts of other cool stuff.
