Everybody Loves Our Town: A Grunge Oral History with author Mark Yarm
EMP Senior Curator Jacob McMurray leads a Q & A with Everybody Love Our Town: A Grunge Oral History author Mark Yarm.
Twenty years after the release of Nirvana's landmark Nevermind album, music writer Mark Yarm brings us Everybody Loves Our Town, a first-hand account of the grunge era, straight from the mouths of musicians, producers, managers, record executives, video directors, photographers, reporters, club owners, roadies, scenesters, and hangers-on. This book tells the whole story: the founding and early successes of Seattle's own Sub Pop record label; the rise of lesser-known bands and that of powerhouses such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam; the insane media hype surrounding the grunge explosion; the suicide of Kurt Cobain; and finally, the genre's mid-to-late nineties decline.
