  • The Strangest Tribe


Twenty years after the height of the movement, The Strangest Tribe redefines grunge as we know it. In 1991 Seattle’s sound took the world by storm — but this same storm had been brewing in the Pacific Northwest for a decade before it hit MTV. The Strangest Tribe is a reframing of this last transformative era in music. Not just plaid shirts, bleached hair, and angst, grunge is a word used to describe a rich community of artists and jokers.

Stephen Tow takes a second look at the music and community that vaulted the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, and Soundgarden to international fame. Packed with interviews with the starring characters, this book extensively chronicles the rise of rock 'n' roll's last great statement and reveals what the music really meant to the key players.
