The Grunge Era

There’ s a lot of treatment being given to the 20 year reunion, of sorts, of the Grunge era, or the area most typically dominated by bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. While I’m particularly enticed by Cameron Crowe’s upcoming documentary on PJ, as well as a book and two-disc release revolving around unreleased tracks, I find it difficult to talk about the distance of something that does not seem distant. However, a lot of great discussions are cropping up around this issue, the most recent within an article written by Simon Reynolds for Slate, which I would fully recommend reading and which I hope will draw some deeper conversations about the introduction of the web and how it has truly assisted in or diminished the possibility of musical success and appropriate placement of tunes.

Here is a link to the trailer for the Pearl jam Film.
