Grunge Secrets Revealed in Quarterly Mag





For the milestone 50th issue of the Seattle rock quarterly, Backfire, veteran rock critic Dawn Anderson (who publishes the mag) persuaded members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Mudhoney to share their memories of a time when grunge was at its zenith. In the issue, out this week, Pearl Jam's Mike McCready admits that he doesn't really like the song "Corduroy," but says "don't tell Eddie that because he'll get pissed" (and thus, inadvertently, revealing that he's not very bright). Mudhoney's Mark Arm discloses that their song "Into Your Shtik" is actually about bigwig Steve Albini, not the much-maligned Courtney Love, as many thought.


The piece also features interviews with Nirvana's Krist Novoselic, as well as others. Backfire has been around in some form since 1983, which includes the 1987-1991 run of Backlash (which was th3e first magazine to write about Nirvana). The magazine showed significant foresight throughout the years, including the bold tongue-in-cheek prediction from 1990 that "there will be a dedication of the new 'Alice in Chains Wing' at the Betty Ford clinic". The current issue is out now.
