A Melvins tour poster created by Cincinnati-based artist Brian Methe appears to show a Courtney Love caricature embracing and kissing the skeleton of Kurt Cobain. Love’s arms are represented by tentacles. Morbid? A little. Rad as hell? Yeah, that too.
The poster was drawn for the Melvins’ August 11 Colorado date. The band is currently touring their 27th(!) studio release, Pinkus Abortion Technician. Have a look at Methe’s poster below, and check out his collection via his Etsy page.
Melvins’ frontman Buzz Osborne took issue with the 2015 Cobain-focused documentary Montage of Heck, calling it “mostly misguided fiction.” Melvins’ drummer Dale Crover has deep ties to Cobain, having played with him as a bassist in Fecal Matter and later drumming for Nirvana in the late-80s and early-90s.
