Yes, Kurt’s still dead. But so is Jimi Hendrix and that hasn’t precluded him from releasing a series of albums since his passing.
According to an interview with Montage of Heck 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.
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.
