singlesBy Scott Goldfine

Seattle, which has recently emerged as a hotbed for rock ‘n’ roll talent, is well represented on this soundtrack to a film about the area’s singles scene. The 13-tune collection includes new music from Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden.

These Northwestern bands are at the forefront of an exciting new movement that combines gritty hard rock with honest, thought-provoking lyrics. Long live the grunge movement!
