The best unreleased live concert, Nirvana at the Reading Festival in 1992, will finally be released on November 3rd. For those of you in your mid to late 20s like me, Nirvana was the band of your childhood.. unless you liked shitty pop music. If you really loved Nirvana, you not only had the In Utero poster and that smiley t-shirt but also bootlegs of the shows (2-22-94 Roma’s my favorite). Although it’ll be nice to have a higher quality …

Flowers recently spoke to NME.com about his desire for The Killers to be as popular in the US as they are in Britain. His biggest obstacle? The American music fan.

“We’ve been embraced in Britain in a way that I’ll never understand, and it’s

Yesterday, news came out that some artist named Natascha Stellmach said that she had acquired Kurt Cobain’s ashes and that she was going to smoke it as the finale to some exhibit she has on October 11th. She’s getting attention for it and The Perv only mentions it because it’s being reported today by Courtney Love’s publicist Alan Nierob that Kurt’s ashes were never stolen. Courtney’s still a psycho but let’s just hope we’re done talking about Kurt’s ashes.…
