Here we are now - entertain you?

Everyone else may have been marking the 25th anniversary of the release of Nevermind, but the Sounding Bored crew simply didn't feel we could let it pass by without following suit. That LP - the very definition of seminal - is the focus of discussion for Episode 9, recorded on Monday night and now up online.

While we explore the places (literal and metaphorical) that Nevermind sprang from, look at the album itself and consider its cultural resonance and legacy (one that continues to this day), we also take a personal perspective - for both myself and guest David, the record's release was a complete year zero, a seismic event that was quite literally life-changing.

While we may have broadly agreed on Nirvana, the three of us had divergent views on Angel Olsen's new LP My Woman and most definitely on Nick Cave's latest, Skeleton Tree...
