Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 6:43 PM (PST)

Teenage Time Killer, the new project featuring Mike Dean and Reed Mullin of Corrosion of Conformity, have been in the studio recording their debut studio release in Northridge, California at Dave Grohl (Nirvana and Foo Fighters)’s Studio 606.

In a brand new interview with Jump Metal (watch here), Mullin revealed some of the names that are going to be involved with the project, such as Dave Grohl, Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Tommy Victor (Prong, Danzig), Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Keith Morris (Black Flag, Flag, The Circle Jerks), Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura), Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (The Misfits) and many others.

No release date has been set for the debut release by Teenage Time Killer, but it’s said to include the track “Hung Out to Dry”, which has been described as “old-school C.O.C.-style thrash punk.”

Surviving members of Nirvana jam with Paul McCartney again

Posted by ChrisDude on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 8:18 PM (PST)

Remember last December when the surviving members of Nirvana ”reunited” and performed a new song with Paul McCartney? Well, last Friday, three of the surviving members (Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear) joined Sir Paul on stage in Seattle to play the song “Cut Me Some Slack” and iconic Beatles tunes such as “Helter Skelter”. Videos for the performance can be viewed here.

About the “reunion”, Sir Paul McCartney said to Rolling Stone:

“We hatched that plan a couple of weeks ago. Dave was going to come up to Seattle with his family, and I said to him, ‘Do you think there’s any chance the guys would fancy [a reunion]?’ He said, ‘Well, let me ask.’ And they fancied it. So we thought, ‘Let’s go and flip ‘em out.’”

Then he added, “When you’re playing with guys like that, you realize that they’ve been to the heights of fame, so they’re used to it – they’re not gonna freak. And they’re hell of musicians, so we learned everything really quickly. That’s what’s great about playing with guys like that … They’re powerful, you know. It’s a great power to have them on stage with you. I mean, my band’s great – but when you augment it with Nirvana, that’s greater.”

Nirvana broke up after the band’s singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain shot himself in his seattle home in April 1994. Their last studio album, In Utero, was released the year before.

Nirvana reunion with Sir Paul McCartney

Posted by kylewagoner on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 9:43 AM (PST)

You heard it right.  Nirvana is to “reunite” at tonight’s Hurricane Sandy relief concert in Madison Square Garden with none other than Paul McCartney filling in for Kurt Cobain.  Paul’s even left-handed like Kurt, but he’s a little bit older than Kurt would be.

We’ve listed the channels broadcasting the concert here.
