Montage of Heck Mixtape Audio

BRETT MORGEN’S DOCUMENTARY on Nirvana’s frontman, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, takes its name from what might just be the weirdest mixtape ever. The half-hour audio collage, which a 20-year-old Cobain made in the late 1980s, is a hodgepodge of classic songs, rare novelty records, TV audio, nature sounds, scraps of demo material, and a few disgusting sound effects—it’s Cobain’s talent at its most cacophonous.

  1. Why isn’t there anything on this website about the movie “SOAKED IN BLEACH”???
    It came out just a couple of months after MOH. Besides, MOH is just Courtney Love propaganda, the movie was great up until the part where she showed up, every time I watch it, I turn it off when she comes into the picture!!! “SOAKED IN BLEACH” is based on truth, not lies like MOH!!! I would like to see more articles and interviews where Kurt is happy and goofy, the REAL KURT COBAIN, NOT the fake Kurt that Courtney fed to the media!!!!
