Smells Like Teen Spirit ~ Allison Crowe by allisoncrowe published on 2013/07/16 05:54:31 +0000 Allison Crowe grew up in North America's Pacific Northwest at a time when Seattle bands were the sound heard 'round the world. When she and bandmates got to playing live and touring, some favourite covers would be part of the concert set. Here, a teenaged Allison Crowe (vocals, piano), Dave Baird (bass) and Kevin Clevette (drums) cap a performance in the snow atop Whistler Mountain, B.C. with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Kurt Cobain and his bandmates Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl and other key musicians of the vital PNW grunge scene inspired Allison Crowe's immersion in rock - adding to her classical and jazz roots. There's no video footage of this alpine show - the still image is from a design by rock poster legend Bob Masse ( http://www.bmasse.com ).
