Okay, so flupocalypse is over. Let’s get back to some serious free shit, shall we?
Shout Factory has released Kurt Cobain: About a Son on DVD. Here’s what they’re saying about it:
Timed to coincide with Kurt Cobain’s 41st birth anniversary, KURT COBAIN ABOUT A SON is an intimate and moving portrait of the late musician and artist Kurt Cobain as told entirely in his own words. The film, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006, was nominated for a 2007 Independent Spirit Award, was screened at numerous top international film festivals around the world, and was released on DVD from Shout! Factory on February 19, 2008, the day before Cobain’s birthday. The DVD also contains a behind-the-scenes featurette and has a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Directed by AJ Schnack, KURT COBAIN ABOUT A SON is based on more than 25 hours of previously unheard audio interviews conducted with Cobain by noted music journalist Michael Azerrad for his book Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana.
For this unique film, director AJ Schnack assembled selections from the Azerrad interviews and merged them with newly filmed, evocative imagery of the three cities in Washington state that played a major role in Cobain’s life: Aberdeen, Olympia and Seattle. These expressionistic images, combined with a haunting original score by Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and Nirvana producer Steve Fisk, as well as the music of 20 artists who influenced or touched Cobain during his life – including Bad Brains, Butthole Surfers, David Bowie, Cheap Trick, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Half Japanese, Iggy Pop, Leadbelly, Mark Lanegan, MDC, Melvins, Mudhoney, Queen, R.E.M, Scratch Acid, Vaselines and Young Marble Giants.
