A special exhibition to celebrate 20 years of Nirvana‘s ‘Nevermind’ is set for September.
Alongside photos, memorabilia and various artifacts relating to the band and the album, the exhibition will also display contributions from fans, which they are currently sourcing. Set to ‘highlight the unique relationship the band enjoyed with their UK fans’, people are being asked to send photos and descriptions of anything they think would work well in the exhibition to the curators. For more information on how to contribute, visit Nirvanaexhibition.com.
The exhibition will take place at The Loading Bay Gallery on Brick Lane. Exact dates are yet to be released, but it will take place in September, the same month that ‘Nevermind’ is reissued. The Super Deluxe Edition of the album will be released on September 19, and comes with a raft of rarities and remixes across its four CDs and one DVD.
These include the full remastered album, accompanying studio and live B-sides, rehearsal takes and the first full official release of producer Butch Vig‘s pre-album demos recorded at Smart Studios.
A new perspective on the album is offered in the form of the ‘Devonshire Mixes’ – a Vig mix of the album that differs to original mixer Andy Wallace‘s version.
Live recordings of BBC sessions and the band’s 1991 show at the Paramount Theatre in hometown Seattle – the only known Nirvana gig shot to film – are also included, along with a 90-page bound book of rare photos and artefacts from the ‘Nevermind’ era.
Only 10,000 copies of the Super Deluxe Version of the album will be released in North America, with another 30,000 for the rest of the world, including the UK.
‘Nevermind’ has sold over 30 million copies in the two decades since its release. It was the second studio album from Nirvana, the iconic grunge band made up of the late Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl.
Uncut have teamed up with Sonic Editions to curate a number of limited-edition framed iconic rock photographs, featuring the likes of Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan and The Clash. View the full collection here.
