“The book is amazing, and so perfectly representative of that time. I swear, looking through those pictures brought me right back to being in a cold, damp van with a bunch of smelly musicians, having the time of our lives!”—Dave Grohl

"For over thirty years Bruce Pavitt has been at the vanguard of popular culture advancing social and artistic trends, ideas, and movements within the community of the innovative and alternative. Experiencing Nirvana is part rock 'n roll travelogue and part voyeuristic pop culture rubbernecking—an unromantic yet nostalgic glimpse into a rock social movement just prior to its explosion."—Kim Thayil, Soundgarden

"Few people can lay claim to starting a rock 'n' roll revolution, but Sub Pop Records founder Bruce Pavitt can do just that."—Paper Mag

"One of those perfect records of music history that galvanizes the pedestrian as easily as the aural devotee."—Dangerous Minds

"The book reveals a side of these bands that most fans have not seen: unknown, homesick, silly, and brimming with the unpolluted exhilaration of impending success. The result is a raw portrait that is free of the rock star mythologizing that kicked into gear as soon as Nirvana signed to Geffen Records."—Forbes

"Arguably the best and most revealing new book on Nirvana…The book is refreshing because it doesn’t care about “Teen Spirit” or Nevermind; barely mentions Courtney Love, heroin, or suicide... Here, in this snapshot of pre-celebrity life, Pavitt finds a sliver of humanity."—Pitchfork

"For some strange and inexplicable reason, none of these photos from the tour have been published in print until now.... Put on your smiley-faced shirt with X'd out eyes, crank up Bleach, and enjoy."—Vice

"Experiencing Nirvana is an interesting and breezing read and a must-have for any grunge or Nirvana fan. It gives a unique perspective on the time period told through the words and photography of the people who were there.—Popmatters


"Excellent"—The Stranger

"Vibrant"—Seattle Times

"Fascinating"—San Antonio Current

"Amazing"—Danko Jones

"Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt chronicles the long ride across Europe, documenting every victory and speed bump along the road to a vital but unsung event that would change the face of rock 'n' roll."—Creative Loafing

"The realities of life on the road - stolen passports, the blur of faces, the hanging out and around - are all present, but so too are the in-your-face excitement of a great gig and the anything-can-happen optimism of youth. You'll think of your own throughout and wish you were there."—RTÉ (4.5/5 review)

"It’s nice to glimpse Nirvana—unsure it was doing the right thing and unimpressed by the Coliseum—before the madness of Rocky-like success enveloped the band."—Paste

"After signing Nirvana to Sub Pop, Pavitt took the band on its first European tour in 1989, with opening gigs for label mates Mudhoney and Tad. With his Olympus pocket camera, Pavitt took countless shots on that eight-day Europe trip. Photos from venue stages and inside dressing rooms shed some light on a 22-year-old Cobain."—CBS News

"Pavitt’s photos, taken on the fly with a pocket-sized Olympus, reveal a would-be superstar still in development. Experiencing Nirvana finds Cobain free of the burden of fame that would plague him only a few years later."—Entertainment Weekly

"The previously unpublished photographs show a young Kurt Cobain, wild-eyed and volatile in some photos, shyly happy in others. The candid shots follow the group as they made their way from Rome to London."—Rolling Stone

"It is one man’s document of the not so calm before the storm, a unique pictorial essay capturing a fledgling band developing into one of the most vital bands of our time… It doesn’t get much more intimate and authentic."—Louder than War

"Required reading"—Sweden Rock

"Holy Sh*t... an inside look into a crucial eight day period in the touring life of Nirvana."—Guitar World

"Experiencing Nirvana also provides another important aspect of that band’s early life: Nirvana as an independent act on an independent label. Pavitt’s words and photos effectively present this other side of Nirvana, to fans only familiar with the post-Nevermind version of the band."—Stephen Tow, The Weeklings

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Bruce Pavitt was born in 1959 in Chicago. At the age of nine, he sold Christmas cards door-to-door in the summer heat, earning enough money to buy his first record player—and soon after, his first record, “Revolution,” by the Beatles.

In 1979 he enrolled at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. He spent time as a DJ at KAOS-FM, and in 1980 started his own zine, Subterranean Pop, aka Sub Pop, which reviewed hard-to-find independent rock recordings. Bruce moved to Seattle in 1983 and started writing the Sub Pop music column for The Rocket. He hosted a Sub Pop radio show on KCMU, and in 1984 co-founded Fallout Records, the first indie record store in Seattle’s Capitol Hill district. His complete zines and Rocket columns, an unrivalled document of American independent music during the 1980s, are collected in the book Sub Pop U.S.A.: The Subterranean Pop Music Anthology, 1980–1988 (Bazillion Points).

In 1986 Bruce launched the Sub Pop record label with the release of the Sub Pop 100 compilation, featuring bands including New York’s Sonic Youth and Seattle’s U-Men. With business partner Jonathan Poneman, Bruce opened the doors in 1988 to the Sub Pop offices at First and Virginia in downtown Seattle. By the early 1990s Sub Pop had released recordings by Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Mark Lanegan, Beat Happening, Tad, the Walkabouts, and Steven Jesse Bernstein, and had helped initiate a global interest in Seattle area music.

After 17 years living on Orcas Island, Bruce Pavitt is back in Seattle, living with his family. He remains active in music by speaking at conferences and festivals, consulting with artists and music labels, and working as a DJ. A true music fan, Bruce continues to study music history in every genre.

Nirvana Ende der Achtziger in Rom und sonstwo in Europa auf Tour.
Kurt Cobain von Weitem.
Kurt Cobain von Hinten.
Kurt Cobain's Jacke.
Und ansonsten auch jede Menge Szenen aus Rom oder Paris oder sonst einer Stadt der nördlichen Hemisphäre, die dem Fotografen gerade gefallen haben, ansonsten mit den Musikern der Bands aber nichts zu tun haben.
Wer sich für eine Tournee explizit, also unabhängig von der Band, interessiert, für den mag dies das richtige sein.
Für den Nirvana Fan, der neue Einblicke haben will, eher ungeeignet. Da kann man auch warten bis die paar neuen Bilder auf der Seite mit den 2 o erscheinen. Ansonsten ist zu dem Thema auch alles gesagt worden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A time & a place, gone with the wind....... 29. Mai 2013
Von Johnny Deep - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
But luckily preserved in uber freshness by Bruce Pavitt & Co. in this awesome photo journal.
I especially appreciated the collected essays from the always entertaining British press that center around the Seattle scene and the bands this book documents: Tad, Mudhoney, and Nirvana. Pretty cool to be able to read some ancient Everett True over-fawning piece about Mark Arm's latest mosh-pit escapades. The Brits can fawn like no one else...
But you really came for the pictures of Kurt right? And they're pretty fantastic. He really was an extraordinary looking gent -- and a great singer too. Pics of Kurt exhausted and burnt out somewhere in Italy. Pics of a revived and relieved Kurt chatting casually w/ another punk rock fan about vinyl. A human being.
Pavitt treats the subject manner w/ delicacy and respect, and that's very cool. It's really just a very rad book. It's not pretentious or over-the-top -- just like the Seattle scene & bands that all changed so many peoples lives in the 20th Century. I've got to say its really a nice tribute to the whole scene.
I have friends that always talk about the Lamefest in London (the final concert documented in this book) being the most incredible show they ever got to see. "Nirvana > Tad > Mudhoney" was the bill. Easy to see why.
Saw Mudhoney twice a couple weeks ago; they're still more vital and brutal live than 99% of the bands out there. Its just cool to be able to pick up a book like this and see a document of them in their beginnings.
Mark Arm looks EXACTLY the same. Freaky.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A rare glimpse... 12. Juni 2013
Von Kevin Colomby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Only rarely in history is The Moment of an artist's public transformation from 'unknown' to 'possessed' documented by an attentive witness. And even rarer still is a witness who follows through with the production of a reflective, honest and eloquent account for all the world to share. In this case, Pavitt is both witness and instigator, and a fine story-teller with an eye for the archetypal. This book is the record of that Moment as it happened to a small group of young men who would go on to create the music and consciousness that defined an Age.

Get it, and read it, When you do, you will feel the same spark and fire that launched Nirvana into legend. And if you're like me, you'll think more seriously about writing some songs and starting a band.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Uplifting Nirvana story ? ... Hell Yeah! 21. Mai 2013
Von Adam Farish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Best Nirvana story never told!

I love this book. Growing up as a teenager in Seattle in the 90's was saturated with Grunge lore. So much of it centered around the tragic death of Kurt Cobain. This is the early history that only a select few got to see. It's a history lesson in the last big bang that happened in music.
