“Grunge” is a new book from photographer Michael Lavine and musician Thurston Moore, from art rock band Sonic Youth, chronicling the rise and fall of the cultural movement that dominated the early 90s.  Lavine’s photographs document the scene from the bands to the fans whilst Moore’s text explores the discovery of Seattle punk; the seminal bands that defined the movement; the exploitation of the subculture; the backlash of grunge and his relationship with close friend Kurt Cobain…. giving a fascinating insight into what it was like to be part of one of the biggest youth subcultures ever.
