Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Though Krist Novoselic is best known for his role in Nirvana, his accomplishments go far beyond that remarkable achievement. Nirvana was a band with a conscience, one of the few major label acts to regularly played benefits -- the first Rock For Choice show, a major concert in support of gay rights, and a seminal gig that raised money for the Balkan Women's Aid Fund.

In 1995, Novoselic founded JAMPAC (Joint Artists and Music Promotions Political Action Committee), a proactive organization that advocated on behalf of Washington State's music community. Novoselic's work with JAMPAC helped Seattle club owners find ways to host all-ages shows, and was instrumental in helping to overturn the infamous Teen Dance Ordinance. And sometimes making music and making a statement go hand in hand, as when Novoselic, Soundgarden's Kim Thayil, and drummer Gina Mainwal backed Jello Biafra as the "No W.T.O. Combo" at a show performed during the World Trade Organization conference held in Seattle in 1999.

There have been other musical endeavors since Nirvana, as well as new causes (Novoselic is a strong supporter of electoral reform, an issue he writes about extensively on his website Fixour.us and in this book). The one constant is Novoselic’s desire to continue making progressive contributions to the community -- and to keep on making good music.

About the Author

Krist Novoselic was a founding member of Nirvana, the rock band that exploded into worldwide commercial success in the early 1990s. After the death of his bandmate Kurt Cobain, Novoselic became an ardent political activist and is currently running for the office of Lieutenant Governor in Washington State. This is his first book.
