Welcome to The Krist Novoselic Dedication Page

Krist Novoselic

This website is dedicated to the legendary musician and political reformist Krist Novoselic. The purpose of the website is to provide fans with a wealth of information relating not only to Krist's musical career, but also his political and personal endeavors. We make every attempt to provide you with the most up-to-date information regarding Krist's activities.

Born Krist Anthony Novoselic on May 16, 1965 to Krist and Maria Novoselic, Krist began his life in Compton, CA. When he was 14, Krist, his parents and two siblings moved to Aberdeen, WA. It was here that Krist would meet Kurt Cobain and begin one of the most influential bands of the 20th Century, Nirvana. On September 24, 1991, the release of Nirvana's Nevermind solidified Krist's position in the history of Rock and Roll.

Since Kurt Cobain's suicide on April 8th, 1994, Krist has starred in two musical acts. His first band after Nirvana, Sweet 75, is considered a commerical failure due to the lack of publicity the band received. Sweet 75 was made up of Krist on guitar, Yva Las Vegas on bass and Adam Wade on drums. Sweet 75 broke up in the summer of 2000.

In late 2001, Krist teamed up with fellow musicians Kurt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets) and Bud Gaugh (Sublime) to form Eyes Adrift. Eyes Adrift released their first and only album on September 24, 2002 to much praise. After a lengthy tour, the album was considered a commerical failure and the band soon broke up.

In October of 2006, Krist was asked to join the influential punk band Flipper as bass player. Both Krist & Kurt were influenced by Flipper's heavy, raw punk sound. Krist was honored to join Flipper. They are currently working on producing a new album, and are touring in select cities.

More recently, Krist has been known for his political endeavors. In 1995 he founded JAMPAC (Joint Artists and Music Promotions Political Action Committee) to lobby against a Seattle bill that would make it easier to censor music. In 2008, he was elected chair of the board of directors of FairVote, and organization devoted to transforming our elections to achieve universal access to participation, a full spectrum of meaningful ballot choices and majority rule with fair representation for all.

Currently, Krist has been advocating voting reform by supporting initiatives such as Instant Runoff Voting and Proportional Representation. To learn more about Krist's political endeavors, please view the Krist and Politics webpage.

Flipper cancels entire tour, Krist Novoselic leaves the band

Posted: September 22nd, 2008

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SEP. 17, 2009

It is with regret that Flipper must announce that we will be postponing our upcoming tour, scheduled to kick off on Nov. 8th. Bass player Krist Novoselic has decided that he will be unable to tour with the band.
Responsibilities at home will prevent him from being able to take the time necessary to get out on the road to promote our upcoming releases.

It is unfortunate, but Flipper will be finding a new bass player. We have enjoyed our time with Krist and have a new album of songs to show for it, and we¹ve done some great shows together.

We are very proud and excited to announce that Flipper will begin releasing it¹s back catalog later this year, beginning with 4 classic¹s. Generic Flipper, Gone Fishin¹, Public Flipper Limited, and Sex Bomb Baby.
We will follow these with more back catalog releases and a new album, as yet untitled, which was recorded by Jack Endino and includes Novoselic on bass.

We are looking forward to releasing all these great albums on CD, Vinyl, and Digitally, beginning later this year in US, Canada, Japan, and Australia. We will follow with releasing in UK, Europe, and other territories in the world as soon as we secure appropriate label partners.

Stay tuned for more info coming very soon.

Posted: July 29th, 2008

In his latest blog post, Krist reflects on the anarchist pamphlet You Can’t Blow Up A Social Relationship published in 1979 that notes violence and social disobedience only invites authorities to constrict civil liberties.  In the pamphlet it is evident that meaningful work, through association & peaceful collaboration is a greater tool for social/cultural change than violence.  Specifically, Krist identifies and elaborates on two events that exemplify the teachings from the pamphlet:  the 1999 Seattle WTO protests and 9/11.

    Flipper plays tunes from upcoming CD

    Posted: July 20th, 2008

    Novoselic finds roots in Flipper Flipper is no household name; the TV dolphin, maybe, but definitely not Bay Area punk band, which remained on pop’s fringes even as alt-rockers it inspired topped the charts in the ’90s.

    “The grunge sound came out of Flipper,” Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic said, citing the sludgy, shambolic sounds of the band’s 1982 album “Generic” as a template.

    “I know Soundgarden were big Flipper fans,” he said. “Mudhoney (singer) Mark Arm’s a big Flipper fan.”

    Novoselic has actually been in Flipper since 2006 and will play bass for the influential quartet tonight at Seattle’s Funhouse and Saturday at Hell’s Kitchen in Tacoma. It’s a scenario he never could have imagined as a teen when Flipper inspired him to make music.

    “I put on ‘Generic’ Flipper. I was, like, 18 years old,” Novoselic recalled. “I listened to it, and it just sounded kind of weird. Like, it was so lo-fi. It sounded like the band was live, you know. And I kind of didn’t get it.”
