LIVE NIRVANA INTERVIEW ARCHIVE June ??, 1993 - Seattle, WA, US
- Unidentified MTV Correspondent
- Krist Novoselic
Krist: …bands coming out of Seattle now because there's so much attention and people will probably think you're a gold-digger, carpet-bagger, or something, y'know? When we started out playing in Seattle there was a really small, friendly climate here and now there's so many bands, and so many clubs, and people I don't even know. I used to walk into a show and know everybody there, and now I walk in and see a bunch of yahoos crawling out, out of the ninja turtle slime gutter.
Krist: Here they're abusive and nasty, they kick me and they throw things at me walking down the street. I'm like a pariah or something, like I have leprosy, or like I'm Mary Magdalene, like the whore of town, y'know? And I'm just waiting for Jesus to come and save me, to save my soul.
Krist: Oh, I'm gonna out-live them all, man! I'll drink a bottle of Wild Turkey once a day and I'll fuckin' get hit by a car, I'll get beat-up by a baseball bat, but I'll out-live them all! You know that? I'll out-live you! I'll out-live you all!
