This is a re-broadcast of Nate Wilcox's 2018 interview with author Adam Caress, to discuss his book, “The Day Alternative Music Died: the Struggle between Art and Money for the Soul of Rock”. Adam makes the case that the death of Kurt Cobain led to an instant revision of music history, and attempts to remind us of what the actual state of “alternative”* music was in the halcyon days of the early 1990s before grunge was codified as a simple to copy formula that was relentlessly promoted by the music industry.
