The John Robb Tapes | Nirvana
'The John Robb Tapes' is a new series which unearths the incredible archive of old interviews that music journalist John Robb has amassed over the years. In this first episode, John interviews Nirvana in 1989, in a hot claustrophobic flat in New York City, the night after the band had played to 10 people at Maxwells, Hoboken. The interview captures a young Kurt Cobain talking about the creative process, the intensity needed to reach the peak of his Nirvana songs on stage and... also... a hint... of a song he had just written, that we think might have gone on to become... Smells Like Teen Spirit.
