On today in 1965 Krist Anthony Novoselic is born in Compton, CA. The Novoselic family moved to Aberdeen, WA in 1979. Sometime later, Krist’s brother Robert introduced him to his friend Kurt Cobain, who had noticed loud music coming from upstairs. Robert told Kurt that it was his older brother, who listened to punk rock. Kurt eventually befriended Krist, as the pair ended up sharing similar musical tastes, including a fondness for local band The Melvins. The two had several mutual friends & began hanging out shortly thereafter. At one point, Kurt gave Krist a demo tape of his former band Fecal Matter, & asked him to form a band together. After several months, Krist finally listened to the tape, liked it, & agreed to start a band with Kurt.
