In 2002 an album was released and promptly forgotten. It was by three members of three separate but equally important bands of the nineties, Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, Curt Kirkwood of The Meat Puppets and Bud Gaugh of Sublime. The much anticipated album was released, but somehow it was all but forgotten.
Why This Album?
This album is to me, a moment in time that I will always remember. Having been a fan of Both Nirvana and the Meat Puppets (and also having an appreciation of Sublime), when I heard that Krist Novoselic and Curt Kirkwood were teaming up for an album of their own I was ecstatic. Two of my very favorite 90’s musicians on the same record, yes please!
When the album released I made sure I was at the record store to get my copy. I had only recently moved on my own and had just finished dealing with a rough relationship that year. The album itself, much like my life, had the feeling of starting over and that in itself made me all the more excited to add it to my collection.
I remember listening to each track, loving the pure 90’s influence to each song. I listened to it over and over but soon I heard that, not only would it be the only album, but the band had called it quits soon after. The supergroup was gone, but I would always have this great moment in time to help me with the start of my new direction.
This is one that you are going to have a difficult time finding these days so to only provide you with single tracks is a little cruel.
Below is a Youtube link to the entire album. I highly recommend the seventh track entitled Solid. It is just that.
Ok, Where do I get it?
Unfortunately this album is long out of print. Occasionally you will find it on ebay or on Amoeba Records but they don’t tend to last long. I managed to find a copy here for $8 at the time of this writing. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to be the one that snagged it.
A little bit Meat Puppets, and a touch of Nirvana, this is a genuine piece of mostly forgotten music history.
