Telling the fascinating story of Grunge rock's beginnings in basements, bars, and garages across the Seattle area to its explosion as an internationally popular style of music, this guide discusses how and why Grunge appeared in Seattle when it did and uncovers the people and places in the city that defined a movement. Including detailed maps and packed with information about the city, this resource describes the bands that defined the Grunge sound-The Melvins, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Mudhoney-the clubs where they played, and key locations in Seattle where Grunge history was made. Discussing collisions between personalities and egos, artists and corporations, and suburbs and cities, this fascinating account of prominent characters in Seattle's Grunge music scene is intertwined with the story of the city that made it all possible.

Grunge Seattle

I love a book that starts with a map; my only reservation is that Henderson could have made the map grungier, more fitting with the music of its contents. He could have warped it, coloured it black, green and burnt it for the effect.Grunge is significant, he tells us, because all of the other (arguable) top five most significant things to come out of Seattle (Starbucks, Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon) are massive corporations, and grunge is a pop rock movement. The text proceeds like a tour guide, corresponding to the aforementioned maps, and it pages and pages until we get any grunge. But when we do, it appears in abundance, like the rain. Brilliantly and personally conceived, this book tells a story which requires telling, stamping Seattle and grunge as synonymous.
