Dad rock

With new Kurt Cobain documentary Montage Of Heck due for release shortly, Rolling Stone have spoken to his daughter Frances Bean, who's now 22 (doesn't that make you feel old?!). Credited as an executive producer of the film, she nevertheless confesses with a grin "I don't really like Nirvana that much", claiming to prefer "Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre". Kids these days, eh? I blame the parents - well, Courtney Love, at least.

While we're on the subject of grunge, here's a great piece about Mudhoney gatecrashing the White House as uninvited companions of Pearl Jam in 1994, written by frontman Mark Arm and originally published in the Beastie Boys' magazine Grand Royal. It's rather better than Noel Gallagher's account of hobnobbing with Tony Blair at Downing Street would be.
