Milkin' It

The 20th anniversary celebrations for Nirvana's In Utero continue this week with, Milkin' It, a tribute album from a number of Toronto bands co-curated by Greys, The Wooden Sky, and the Hand Drawn Dracula label. In addition to Greys and The Wooden Sky, the compilation also features covers from Beliefs, Teenanger, Absolutely Free, Odonis Odonis, Hooded Fang, HSY, and more.

For the album, Greys took on In Utero's second track, "Scentless Apprentice," and that cover makes its premiere in this post. The headbanging riffage and dissonant chorus of this one was a great choice for the noise punk quartet who probably owe more than a little of their sound to tracks like this one. They do the song the justice it deserves, and you can listen for yourself, below.

Greys will also be in NYC soon for CMJ (as will a few other bands on the comp). Their currently announced shows include Cameo on 10/15 with Hunters, PUP, Big Ups, Kirin J Callinan, and Ovlov; and the Brixton Agency/MezzoForte showcase at Grand Victory on 10/17 with Pity Sex, Dads, Ovlov, Kal Marks and more.

All of their dates are listed, along with the song stream, below...

Milkin' It?

Isn't that slagging the surviving members of Nirvana considering they have reissued all the Nirvana catalog with bonus material?

Just what the world needs: a Nirvana tribute.

What's next? A Pearl Jam tribute? How 'bout a Blind Melon tribute?

Look at us, we all got into music in 1991-94 and think a major label rock band needs a tribute when wtf did Nirvana do besides be in the right place at the right time? What cultural impact did they have on music besides how they dressed which wasn't even original? Tell me. Whenever I see the word "grunge" it is almost always followed by the fashion (flannels, t-shirts etc.) Fuck that shit, grunge, and Nirvana.

I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing. It would definitely be fun to be part of a project like this anyway. I don't think this record should have been or likely was released with any major capitalist intentions but it's cool to band a bunch of artists together wunder a common thesis. Whether a compilation is a tribute to Nirvana, Bob Marley, Jackson Browne or Debbie Gibson is irrelevant, it's just a good excuse to get a good bunch of bands together to rock out. Think of it as an auditory costume party and maybe it'll sit better with you.

10:19- you aren't a maverick if you say you don't like Nirvana. Free country. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, gives a shit.
