The Stranger: The Unbearable Heaviness of Being: Feeling Doom-Drone Classic Earth 2's Tremors 20 Years On

THE STRANGER: What did your musician friends—particularly Kurt Cobain—think of Earth 2 when it came out?

DYLAN CARLSON:
Kurt was kind of in the midst of exploding. [Laughs] Nirvana were not in town very much at that time. You never really know when you play stuff for your friends: They say they like it, but who knows? I can like people and not like their band, but a lot of people you can’t do that with. They think that if you like them as friends and you say you don’t like their band, they get all huffy or get in a snit about it. I’ve always been like, I can like you as a friend, but I don’t have to dig what you do musically.
