Grunge Hell

Keith Cameron, Steven Wells, New Musical Express, 4 January 1992

It's the dawning of a new earache! Jakki Brambles is playing Daisy Chainsaw! Your parents have heard of Nirvana! Geffen are chasing Mudhoney! Madonna's into Hole! Yep, the early warning alarms are going off all around us — GRUNGE ROCK is coming to save us all from SHOE-GAZING Hell in '92! STEVEN WELLS, never one to shy away from a spot of ear-punishing noise, goes to, erm, Hertfordshire in search of a revolution. Meanwhile, KEITH CAMERON catalogues the Grungers worth burning your Moose T-shirt for.
