The Nevermind twentieth anniversary celebrations continue with the news of a major exhibition taking place in London, set to highlight the unique relationship the band enjoyed with their fans and to be held at The Loading Bay Gallery, in Brick Lane. The exhibition will run for 2 weeks only in September (dates tbc) and will display an abundance of professional photographs, band memorabilia and other treasured artifacts. If you would like to be part of this one off exhibition and you have anything Nirvana related that you think would be suitable for inclusion, please send a photo and a brief description via the form on www.nirvanaexhibition.com and your message will be replied to soon.
In other, more bizarre, Nirvana news, Jamaican reggae artist Little Roy and producer Prince Fatty are to release Battle For Seattle on 2nd September, a collection of ten songs from the band re-imagined in a dub style. Talking about the project, Little Roy says “when I listened to the lyrics as he sung them, I found it hard to pick up on what he was saying. The lyrics came too quickly for my ears and were buried in the music. It sounded to me like he was crying out. You have to listen deep to get it. The melody was always there, though, so I knew this was a chance for me to bring them up so people could really hear what Kurt was saying. People could enjoy the words of these great songs through me singing them in my reggae style – reggae fans like me who didn’t know about Nirvana would love the songs, and Nirvana fans could enjoy the music all over again.”
