Alternative Seattle Music

The big music blasting the young hearts and minds of the early 90s was ignited from Seattle. Bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Sound Garden were pumping the airwaves with a vast array of steely melancholic acoustic tunes. It enchanted disenfranchised students like us and we explored ways and means to experience obscure beatnik places in Canberra that embraced such music.  It embodied an Age of Release. Like flower children in the sixties we understood we were children of this movement. We read similar books, dug the same music, eventually took the same drugs and even had similar thoughts, for all we knew.
