For some musicians, getting to meet one of your musical icons is more than enough. But having one of them say enjoy the the art you’re creating? Holy cow. Or, as Bleeding Rainbow put it when Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic tweeted about them last night, “!!!!!!!!&;$;&3′cidndncbbdn!!@.!:8/&:!;!!n?!?!!!!!!!!???!”
It was pretty straightforward; Novoselic simply said “I like this band – Bleeding Rainbow” and linked to their Waking Dream 7″ on Bandcamp. But as anybody who has listened to music in the last 20 years knows, that’s a badass endorsement to have. Bleeding Rainbow manager Dryw Scully Instagrammed the tweet, saying “I never repost. But holy shit @rainbowbleeding that dude played bass in a band called Nirvana..” True that.
Bleeding Rainbow’s full-length Yeah Right is out on January 29 on Kanine Records, by the way, and it rules hard. Check out the video for “Drift Away” below.
