This past week a few Nirvana related stories have popped up on the internet. The first was the announcement of Kirk Cobain's childhood home going up for sale. The house, located in Aberdeen, Washington, was put on the market by Cobain's family and is being marketed as a potential site for a Nirvana museum. More can be found on the L.A. Times website.
A second piece of news is revelations from Steve Albini, the producer of In Utero. Albini's letter to the band in which he pitched himself as a producer, is the stuff that one can only think Nirvana dreamt about. Albini notes that he is not in it to make money off the band, and in fact took no points off the album. Instead, he chooses to focus on recording using only the basics. On this, the 20th anniversary of In Utero, it is timely to visit the beginnings of the album. The letter can be found here.
