Grunge, also known as the 'Seattle Sound', emerged from the Pacific north-west in the early part of the 1980s. With the unexpected success of Nirvana's single 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in 1991, grunge became a household word overnight and launched an American music movement on a par with punk and hip-hop. In Everybody Loves Our Town , Mark Yarm draws from exclusive interviews to tell the whole story: the founding of originators like Soundgarden and the Melvins, the early successes of the Sub Pop record label, the rise of powerhouses Nirvana and Pearl Jam, the media hype, the suicide of Kurt Cobain, and finally, the genre's mid-to-late-nineties decline.

Review:

Exhilarating. (Sunday Times)

A flannel-shirted soap opera. (Guardian)

Rip-roaring . . . An epic cast of participants and survivors from Seattle s glory years thrash out what actually happened with the kind of noisy, anarchic humour evocative of the best of Nirvana s music. --(Bernadette McNulty Daily Telegraph 'Books of the Year')

Lively, funny, melancholy and exhaustive . . . Seattle was briefly an exhilarating pop cultural moment to rank with the greats. Yarm s labour of love has well and truly done it justice. --(Phil Harrison Time Out)

Brilliant and exhaustive . . . Some 250 interviews with those intimately associated with the most unlikely musical sensation of all time piece together a story that is hilarious and tragic and utterly gripping . . . Time and again in Yarm s exhilarating book, lives are bent out of shape by undreamt-of success or crushing failure. --(Rob Fitzpatrick Sunday Times)

Book Description:

The definitive word on grunge, revealing the never-before-told stories of the movement's biggest bands.
