Fashion Grunge Mixtape #38: What Are We Doing Here

rev_2web

This mix is inspired by the heavy sounds that have been surging through my musical life the past few weeks. I’ve been spending my down time from fashion shooting this great band called reVolt, and their song “Public Enemy” is fast becoming one of the most played songs on my iPod.  The cover photo of this post is from their show this past Tuesday.

 

Play this loud and fast and re-think what you know.

Menswear Monday : Krist Novoselic

Nirvana 1991

Since the 20th Anniversary edition of Nirvana’s last album, In Utero is released on Tuesday it’s only fitting to mention another important figure in the grunge scene. Nirvana’s co-founder and bassist, Krist Novoselic. We are so accustomed to hearing about Kurt and Dave that often he gets overlooked. Being the oldest member of Nirvana he was always looked at as more of a big brother figure but Krist’s stage performances show the latter. He really is a kick ass bassist with unconscious awesome 90s style really. Really feeling the Nirvana love this week in honor of In Utero.

Throwback Thursday: Foo Fighters- Self Titled Album

tumblr_mpblgtCfxe1qejocno1_500

 

The debut album by the Foo Fighters is probably one of the most sentimental albums of my adolescence. After Kurt’s death and the dissolution of the “grunge” genre I remember thinking what next? I think the entire music industry was curious as to what was going to happen after such a tragic end to one of the early 90s’ most influential bands.

When I first heard that Dave Grohl, the drummer of Nirvana had started a new band I immediately was intrigued. This self-titled album really marks my venture into the world of alternative rock. Now, almost 20 years later Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters have consistently been putting out great music ever since. The early lineup included Pat Smear from LA band, The Germs, and the second guitarist from Nirvana of the last year. Nate and William of Sunny Day Real Estate joined in to complete the lineup. I remember seeing them perform in a Tower Records parking lot for free when I was in junior high and that day is just as vivid as any from the past year. For today’s throwback, lets reminisce on the first album from the Foo Fighters, or discover it for the first time.

Throwback Thursday: SPIN Magazine Covers

River-Phoenix-94-01-spin-cover_31

Growing up SPIN Magazine was just as, if not more important than Rolling Stone in my world. I remember vividly going to the store and getting the latest in alternative news. Last December they announced the end of their print run after 27 years to focus more on their digital properties. It makes me sad to see another piece of my childhood fall victim to the digital takeover. At least I can spend another Thursday tracking down some of my favorite cover memories.

Inspiration: Fuck Shit Up

fuck-the-police-e1311452602541

That’s was pretty much the mission of the two day shoot I had with the band reVolt. So, I thought it would be good to have that as my base for this late installment of an inspiration post.

Inspiration:Unplug

tumblr_mcfnt2Hl1c1qcjweco1_500

There really is something to be said for the peaceful and serene.  Sometimes, I wish I could unplug and sail away to a remote island for a while and just collect my thoughts. For now I’ll just have to settle for a good book and spinning my vinyl on a Sunday afternoon.

A follow up to the last mixtape which involved instances of love complied with film dialogue. Taking a different twist and using rage as a theme for this tape. Rage can come in any form.
