Thanks to our friends at Madman, we have eight copies of the Kurt Cobain documentary, About A Son, to give away to randomly selected Lost At E Minor subscribers. To be in with a chance of winning, simply be a Lost At E Minor subscriber and leave a message under this post saying ‘Kurt, oh Kurt’, or words to that effect. We’ll announce the winners on Friday morning New York time.

Taken from 25 hours of previously unheard interviews with Kurt Cobain, ABOUT A SON recounts the Nirvana frontman’s life as he himself remembered it. The film reveals an intimate portrait of a well-known yet conversely not very well-understood man, whose life ended tragically too early. Cobain’s views on music, art and fame are intimately confided in this stirring documentary, to an awesome soundtrack that plays like Kurt’s favourites mixtape. Artists featured include Arlo Guthrie, the Melvins, Bad Brains, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Half Japanese, Scratch Acid, The Vaselines, Mark Lanegan, Butthole Surfers, Mudhoney, Iggy Pop, Leadbelly, REM and David Bowie.
