With Nirvana's iconic second album Nevermind turning 30 this month (on September 24, to be precise), BBC Music have announced several different birthday celebrations – including a new documentary featuring Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.
The two surviving members of the band will be joined by the likes of BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, members of their British tour crew, UK publicist Anton Brookes and more for When Nirvana Came To Britain, which is produced by Wise Owl Films. It'll document the story of Nirvana between 1989 and 1994, and include all sorts of home movie footage, archive stuff, and important UK locations to the band.
"The UK definitely responded to Nirvana much more, before America," says Dave. "You guys were the first with everything… we cut our teeth there. After touring the UK I remember going back to America to the same bars and clubs where we were playing to 99 people… 150 people… it was definitely not like what it was in the UK. It really is like a second home."
