Nirvana Lamefest UK 1989


3rd December 1989, Astoria Theatre, London The now legendary 'Lamefest UK' gig that introduced Nirvana to the UK music press and documented to great effect in Bruce Pavitt's book, 'Experiencing Nirvana'. Of course at the time Nirvana were just the 3rd in line to Mudhoney and Tad, the Sub Pop big names and Kurdt (as he spelled it then) was just another grunge-hopefull with a penchant for smashing his last guitar to release his pent-up frustrations. Of course now I wish I'd shot endless rolls of film but as it was I only shot 40 frames of Nirvana... 40 frames of history!
