MUSIC REVIEWS

Nirvana-From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah (Geffen)

Nirvana's memory has been burdened in the last two years by the overinflated idea that Kurt Cobain was a tragic martyr and the voice of his generation. The new live album From the Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah reminds you of what Nirvana really was... a pretty damned good band.

Unlike the hushed gravity of the first Nirvana concert disk, Unplugged in New York, this one lets the band turn the amps up to 11 and let wail. Songs like the metal crunch "School" and the torrid "Aneurysm" show off the band's twin qualities of moving the spirit while slamming the mind.

As Cobain points out on "Smells Like Teen Spirit," the most you can ask in life is "entertain us." Wishkah does the job. (11/96)
