WARDEN TRACKS... A lost gem from a band whose lead singer died 20 years ago this April; obviously I'm talking about Nirvana.  From the "non-album" album called "Incesticide," today's song chronicles an uneasy childhood afternoon.  BTW, the first "official" Nirvana Day will be held in Hoquiam, Washington, on April 10th, that's only four miles from where Kurt Cobain was born & raised.  In the meantime, some vintage Nirvana with "SLIVER," click the play button in the album graphic to the right.
