Exclusive clip of Kurt Cobain's path to settling on the Nirvana name
So how did Kurt Cobain eventually find his ‘Nirvana’?
Well, as the monks would say: "It was a one hell of a ride, mate."
To celebrate the release of the new Nirvana documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck on the April 10th, director Brett Morgen and The Guardian have hit us with a sneaky peek from the much-anticipated film featuring a minute long montage explaining the bands journey to settling with the 'Nirvana' name.
The clip takes us from the bottom up, with naming highlights such as Fecal Matter, Dicks, Hare Lip and Erectum gracing Kurt’s famous notebook page, as director Morgen emphasises the complexity behind even the smallest of Cobain’s creative movements.
While the previously released clip revealed some touching, never before seen home video clips, this time Morgen used a mixture of animation, stills and stop-motion to bring Cobain’s writing to life.
Montage of Heck will premier on HBO on May 4th, and along with that Morgen promises a kicking soundtrack featuring “a mind-blowing 12-minute acoustic Cobain unheard track”, though no further details have been released.
