Mention NIRVANA and we are immediately reminded of Kurt Cobain, the lead vocal and guitarist of the most influential band of the 90s. Fans of Nirvana/Kurt Cobain definitely know the name of Charles Peterson. Born in Seattle, he is known as the unoffical photographer of the SUB-POP label and the grunge movement. MADNESS is honor and grateful to have an interview with Charles Peterson.
EDGE – Perspectives on Drug Free Culture is a documentary attempting to present a history of a youth movement that originated in the early 1980’s, connected through the US Punk and Hardcore music scenes with bands like Youth of Today and Earth Crisis, that has become a worldwide phenomenon.
