Interview Magazine Party

Grunge: More Than Flannel and Self-Loathing

Adorned with a cover photo of Kurt Cobain, the newly released Grunge photo book chronicles the pivotal scene that dominated the music in the Pacific Northwest during the late eighties and early nineties. The photos, comprised from Sub Pop photographer Michael Lavine’s personal collection, provide an unabridged look at the bands that dominated the pivotal scene in American music as well as a look at the group of young fans disenfranchised by an over-commercialized music scene. Lavine contributed to the alternative Sub Pop aesthetic by providing the album art photos for Nirvana, Mudhoney, Dwarves, Screaming Trees, and others.
