parodies by nacrowe
CHRIS CORNELL has been in my thoughts lately given the third anniversary of his passing this week. ive been a big fan of SOUNDGARDEN since my days in elementary school (check out that sweet SUPERUNKNOWN shirt from my class picture below from AIS LAGOS and even at STONEHENGE!).
as i mentioned before, the first two records i ever got was SUPERUNKNOWN and PEARL JAM's VITALOGY back in the day.
many reasons why i adore SOUNDGARDEN. i love delving into the rich world within CORNELL's lyrics as well as KIM THAYIL's layered and highly sophisticated sonic experimentalism. looking back at their ALTERNATIVE ROCK peers in SEATTLE and beyond, their off-kilter, odd time signature riffage and evocative lyricism really set them apart. they were a weird band in a good sense.
check out our episode from back in MAY 2019 dedicated to SOUNDGARDEN and the memory of CHRIS CORNELL. rest in power.
