Kurt Cobain: home recordings


Da qualche settimana Brett Morgen è l’uomo “copertina”. Il regista di “Montage Of Heck” sta giustamente raccogliendo i frutti di un’opera straordinaria e durante un’intervista rilasciata a Bedford + Bowery rivela le intenzioni di pubblicare un disco con tutte le registrazioni casalinghe di Kurt Cobain. La stampa è subito impazzita e ovunque si parla dell’arrivo del “disco solista di Kurt” ma Morgen spiega chiaramente di cosa si tratta:

“We’re going to be putting out an amazing album this summer that I think will answer that question. The album of home recordings will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It’s going to really surprise people. Just to be clear, it’s not a Nirvana album, it’s just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him. The audio ran the gamut from jam sessions with Courtney, some jam sessions with various friends and Nirvana, his first demo tapes, his Fecal Matter demos, his mix tapes and oral canvases like Montage, a lot of silly spoken word stuff and not-silly spoken word stuff like the story he told of losing his virginity, covers of the Beatles songs, it just ran the gamut. And a lot of sound effects and a lot of sound design. As that would essentially serve as the basis of this movie, because I wanted to make a film in which Kurt could tell the story of his life in the best way he could — not through sharing it to an interviewer, because that was never a format that Kurt was that expressive in, but through his art, through the very reason we’re talking about him”.
