Biography Krist Novoselic_section_0

Early life Krist Novoselic_section_1

Krist Anthony Novoselic was born in Compton, California, on May 16, 1965, the son of Croatian immigrants Kristo and Marija Novoselić. Krist Novoselic_sentence_7

Kristo was a native of Veli Iž on the island of while Marija originates from Privlaka. Krist Novoselic_sentence_8

Novoselic lived in Compton for one year before his parents moved to the ethnically Croatian Los Angeles neighborhood of San Pedro. Krist Novoselic_sentence_9

He has a younger brother, Robert (born 1968), and a younger sister, Diana (born 1973). Krist Novoselic_sentence_10

In 1971, his family relocated to Aberdeen, Washington due to surging real estate costs in California. Krist Novoselic_sentence_11

In 1980, his parents sent him to live with relatives in Zadar, Croatia. Krist Novoselic_sentence_12

He returned to Aberdeen in 1981. Krist Novoselic_sentence_13

He is partially fluent in Croatian. Krist Novoselic_sentence_14

His earliest memory of listening to music is listening to Chuck Berry with his father. Krist Novoselic_sentence_15

Growing up, he had a severe underbite, for which he underwent corrective surgery. Krist Novoselic_sentence_16

Novoselic was interested in bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who, Van Halen, Devo, and Aerosmith. Krist Novoselic_sentence_17

He also enjoyed listening to Bosnian bands such as Zabranjeno Pušenje, Croatian band Prljavo kazalište, and Azra. Krist Novoselic_sentence_18

In Croatia, he became interested in punk rock, and discovered bands such as the Sex Pistols and Ramones when he lived in Croatia at the age of 14 for one year. Krist Novoselic_sentence_19

He has cited Paul McCartney, Geezer Butler, John Entwistle, and Gene Simmons as the fundamental influences of his bass playing. Krist Novoselic_sentence_20

Novoselic's brother Robert introduced him to his friend Kurt Cobain, who had noticed loud music coming from upstairs in the Novoselic household. Krist Novoselic_sentence_21

Robert told Cobain that it was his older brother, who listened to punk rock. Krist Novoselic_sentence_22

Cobain eventually befriended the older Novoselic, as the pair had similar musical tastes, including a fondness for local band Melvins. Krist Novoselic_sentence_23

The two had several mutual friends and began hanging out shortly thereafter. Krist Novoselic_sentence_24

Krist attended Aberdeen High School while Kurt attended high school in nearby Montesano. Krist Novoselic_sentence_25

At one point, Cobain gave Novoselic a demo tape of his former band Fecal Matter, and asked him to form a band together. Krist Novoselic_sentence_26

After several months, Novoselic finally listened to the tape, liked it, and agreed to start a band with Cobain. Krist Novoselic_sentence_27

After high school, Novoselic worked as a painter and decorator but was eventually laid off. Krist Novoselic_sentence_28

Nirvana (1987–1994) Krist Novoselic_section_2

Main article: Nirvana (band) Krist Novoselic_sentence_29

Cobain and Novoselic's first band lasted barely a few weeks before it disbanded, leaving the pair to move on. Krist Novoselic_sentence_30

However, the duo eventually discovered that Melvins could pull $80 a night for one show. Krist Novoselic_sentence_31

Inspired, Cobain and Novoselic started a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band, in which Cobain played drums and Novoselic sang and played guitar. Krist Novoselic_sentence_32

That band was short-lived as well. Krist Novoselic_sentence_33

Some months later, Cobain and Novoselic met drummer Aaron Burckhard. Krist Novoselic_sentence_34

While the new band never used the name, it was the first incarnation of Nirvana. Krist Novoselic_sentence_35

Burckhard lasted only a few months and Melvins' drummer Dale Crover filled in until Novoselic and Cobain met Chad Channing. Krist Novoselic_sentence_36

The trio recorded their debut album Bleach, released in 1989. Krist Novoselic_sentence_37

Channing left the band in 1990 and was briefly replaced by Crover and Mudhoney drummer Dan Peters. Krist Novoselic_sentence_38

Novoselic contributed to the writing of various songs, providing ideas for Cobain. Krist Novoselic_sentence_39

Later in 1990, Melvins' singer-guitarist Buzz Osborne encouraged Novoselic and Cobain to check out a punk band called Scream. Krist Novoselic_sentence_40

The pair were impressed by their drummer, Dave Grohl. Krist Novoselic_sentence_41

A few weeks later, Scream disbanded, and Grohl placed a call to Osborne for advice. Krist Novoselic_sentence_42

Osborne gave him Novoselic's phone number, and Novoselic invited Grohl up to Seattle (from San Francisco, where Scream broke up). Krist Novoselic_sentence_43

Grohl passed the audition and joined Nirvana. Krist Novoselic_sentence_44

Grohl was Nirvana's fifth and final drummer. Krist Novoselic_sentence_45

This was after the first few recordings of songs from their Bleach Album. Krist Novoselic_sentence_46

Novoselic spent the following months with Nirvana traveling to various labels as the band shopped for a deal, eventually signing with DGC Records. Krist Novoselic_sentence_47

In the spring of 1991, the band entered Sound City Studios in Los Angeles to record Nevermind. Krist Novoselic_sentence_48

Novoselic helped write the song "Polly". Krist Novoselic_sentence_49

Upon its release, Nevermind (1991) exceeded all expectations and became a worldwide commercial success. Krist Novoselic_sentence_50

Nevermind had launched the band as a worldwide phenomenon with their hit single "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Krist Novoselic_sentence_51

At the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, Nirvana would win awards for Best New Artist in a Video and Best Alternative Video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Krist Novoselic_sentence_52

At the show, Nirvana performed "Lithium". Krist Novoselic_sentence_53

When Novoselic started playing the opening bass riff, he signaled that he could not hear his bass. Krist Novoselic_sentence_54

Instead of continuing to play, Novoselic threw his bass guitar in the air, to perform a "Bass Toss". Krist Novoselic_sentence_55

He failed to catch it, later stating that he misjudged the height; he further stated that he "faked like he was knocked out." Krist Novoselic_sentence_56

Musician Brian May ran to give him medical attention; he did not suffer any injuries. Krist Novoselic_sentence_57

In 1992, Novoselic and the rest of Nirvana recorded a compilation album named Incesticide. Krist Novoselic_sentence_58

Novoselic helped write lyrics for the songs "Dive", "Hairspray Queen", and "Aneurysm" on the album. Krist Novoselic_sentence_59

This album was produced by a joint venture between DGC and Sub Pop. Krist Novoselic_sentence_60

During Nirvana's 1992 Reading concert, Novoselic sang Oakland punk band 'Fang's' "The Money Will Roll Right In" with Cobain. Krist Novoselic_sentence_61

Novoselic was an occasional vocalist and backing vocalist in Nirvana, occasionally singing "Scoff" and "Rape Me" at live shows. Krist Novoselic_sentence_62

Novoselic stated that "I kind of discovered my voice for the first time, and the more I did it, the better it got." Krist Novoselic_sentence_63

In September 1993, Nirvana's third album In Utero, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. Krist Novoselic_sentence_64

However, the recording sessions mixed by Steve Albini were criticized by the band members, saying some songs "didn't sound perfect", as well as the band agreeing that Novoselic's bass lines sounded "too low". Krist Novoselic_sentence_65

In Utero sold 3.5 million copies in the United States. Krist Novoselic_sentence_66

In November of that year, Nirvana performed on MTV Unplugged with Lori Goldston playing cello, the introduction of guitarist Pat Smear, and Novoselic playing acoustic bass guitar, accordion, and acoustic rhythm guitar. Krist Novoselic_sentence_67

This live performance was released a year later as an album, named MTV Unplugged in New York, which earned a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance. Krist Novoselic_sentence_68

Prior to their 1994 European tour, the band scheduled session time at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle to work on demos. Krist Novoselic_sentence_69

For most of the three-day session, Cobain was absent, so Novoselic and Grohl worked on demos of their own songs. Krist Novoselic_sentence_70

The duo completed several songs, including "Exhausted", "Big Me", "February Stars", and "Butterflies". Krist Novoselic_sentence_71

On the third day of the session, Cobain finally arrived. Krist Novoselic_sentence_72

The song "You Know You're Right" was the band's final studio recording. Krist Novoselic_sentence_73

Nirvana ended abruptly in April 1994 following Cobain's death. Krist Novoselic_sentence_74

For most of the rest of that year, Novoselic retreated from the spotlight. Krist Novoselic_sentence_75

One of a few public appearances came that September at the MTV Video Music Awards, where the video for Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" was awarded for Best Alternative Video. Krist Novoselic_sentence_76

Novoselic took the opportunity to pay tribute to Cobain. Krist Novoselic_sentence_77

Following the end of Nirvana, Novoselic worked on completing the With the Lights Out box set and From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah album, as well as pushing for release of a 20th anniversary album for Nevermind. Krist Novoselic_sentence_78

Post-Nirvana (1995–present) Krist Novoselic_section_3

After Cobain's death, Novoselic continued to dabble in musical endeavors. Krist Novoselic_sentence_79

He co-formed the band Sweet 75 with Venezuelan musician Yva Las Vegass in 1995, releasing a single self-titled album in 1997. Krist Novoselic_sentence_80

In 1996, Novoselic joined singer Johnny Cash, guitarist Kim Thayil of Soundgarden and drummer Sean Kinney of Alice in Chains to record a cover of Willie Nelson's "Time of the Preacher", for the tribute album Twisted Willie, released in January 1996. Krist Novoselic_sentence_81

In 1998, Novoselic directed his first movie, L7: The Beauty Process, a pseudo-documentary that utilizes concert footage taped in 1997 in three American cities. Krist Novoselic_sentence_82

In 1999, he joined Jello Biafra and Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil in the No WTO Combo. Krist Novoselic_sentence_83

In 2002, Novoselic performed uncredited background vocals on Foo Fighters' song "Walking a Line", written as a tribute to Cobain, during the One by One album sessions. Krist Novoselic_sentence_84

The track is included on the One by One bonus DVD, as well as being a bonus track to the album. Krist Novoselic_sentence_85

He then joined former Meat Puppets front man Curt Kirkwood and former Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh to form Eyes Adrift. Krist Novoselic_sentence_86

In Australia, there was another group called "Eyes Adrift", and rather than pay to license that name, the trio called the band and album "Bud, Curt & Krist" in this nation. Krist Novoselic_sentence_87

Eyes Adrift released a self-titled album with twelve songs, with the Japanese version including two extras. Krist Novoselic_sentence_88

Eyes Adrift was the first official release in Krist's career where he sang lead vocals, singing lead on "Inquiring Minds", "Dottie Dawn & Julie Jewel" and "Pasted". Krist Novoselic_sentence_89

They also released a single named Alaska. Krist Novoselic_sentence_90

He also took a highly active role in the songwriting process, co-writing several songs with Kirkwood. Krist Novoselic_sentence_91

They toured mostly around the United States. Krist Novoselic_sentence_92

The group disbanded in 2003. Krist Novoselic_sentence_93

Following the end of Eyes Adrift, Novoselic announced that he was quitting the music business, noting that he disliked the process of building up publicity for new records. Krist Novoselic_sentence_94

However, in 2005, Novoselic had occasionally worked on music for a possible solo album, noting, "Right now, I'm just doing it for myself, and that's what it's all about." Krist Novoselic_sentence_95

In November 2006, it was announced that Novoselic would join Flipper, replacing Bruno DeSmartas on bass, for a tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland. Krist Novoselic_sentence_96

He was a full-time member of the band and had been working on their new album. Krist Novoselic_sentence_97

On September 22, 2008, because of responsibilities at home, Novoselic announced his departure from the band. Krist Novoselic_sentence_98

As a result, the band canceled the remainder of the tour. Krist Novoselic_sentence_99

Rachel Thoele then replaced Novoselic. Krist Novoselic_sentence_100

In 2009, Novoselic played a newspaper vendor in the movie World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams. Krist Novoselic_sentence_101

In October 2010, Dave Grohl, former Nirvana bandmate of Novoselic, announced live on BBC radio, that Novoselic would be joining Foo Fighters as a bassist and accordionist on their next album, Wasting Light, which was released in 2011. Krist Novoselic_sentence_102

Novoselic also played bass on children's music artist Caspar Babypants' 2010 album This Is Fun!, for a cover of the Nirvana song "Sliver". Krist Novoselic_sentence_103

In 2011, he performed "On a Plain" and "Sliver" with the band at the Nevermind 20th anniversary celebration in Seattle. Krist Novoselic_sentence_104

In 2012, Novoselic and Grohl partnered with Paul McCartney on the song "Cut Me Some Slack", which was composed specially for the soundtrack of the documentary Sound City, directed by Grohl. Krist Novoselic_sentence_105

The song was first shown on December 12, 2012, at the 12-12-12 festival, which brought together music stars for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York. Krist Novoselic_sentence_106

The song was received well by critics. Krist Novoselic_sentence_107

Allmusic called it a "tune with an immediate hook [and] melody". Krist Novoselic_sentence_108

The song won the Grammy award for Best Rock Song in 2014. Krist Novoselic_sentence_109

The partnership was referred to as "Sirvana" by Novoselic, referring to "Sir Paul McCartney". Krist Novoselic_sentence_110

On April 17, 2016, Novoselic performed "Helter Skelter" with Paul McCartney in Seattle as part of the One on One tour. Krist Novoselic_sentence_111

In November 2016, Novoselic confirmed that he was in the process of writing new music. Krist Novoselic_sentence_112

His current band is Giants in the Trees, formed in 2017, with band members Jillian Raye, Erik Friend and Ray Prestegard. Krist Novoselic_sentence_113

He is also in the band Filthy Friends, playing bass and accordion. Krist Novoselic_sentence_114

He also collaborates with Lepidopterist and author Robert Michael Pyle with the musical project Butterfly Launches from Spar Pole. Krist Novoselic_sentence_115

In late July 2017, Giants in the Trees released their first song, "Sasquatch", which features a music video Novoselic joked as "costing over 2 million U.S. dollars to produce". Krist Novoselic_sentence_116

Giants in the Trees' first album was released in late 2017. Krist Novoselic_sentence_117

Performance and recording with Foo Fighters Krist Novoselic_section_4

Grohl originally asked Novoselic to join Foo Fighters as a full-time band member; he declined, stating they would call it "Nirvana 2". Krist Novoselic_sentence_118

Novoselic's first experience with Foo Fighters was during the encore of their show on August 29, 1997 at Memorial Stadium as part of the Bumbershoot festival, where he played bass for the band's covers of "Purple Rain" and "Communication Breakdown". Krist Novoselic_sentence_119

In January 2002, Novoselic performed backing vocals for a non-album track titled "Walking a Line", later released on a special edition of the band's album One by One. Krist Novoselic_sentence_120

Later, during the encore of Foo Fighters' secret show at Paladino's in Tarzana, California on December 22, 2010, the band, with Grohl on drums, was joined onstage by Novoselic and the band's live guitarist Pat Smear for a version of Nirvana's "Marigold", a 1992 Grohl original, which was a B-side on Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box". Krist Novoselic_sentence_121

Novoselic also recorded bass and accordion for the song "I Should Have Known", appearing on Foo Fighters' seventh studio album Wasting Light. Krist Novoselic_sentence_122

On December 5, 2017, Novoselic joined Foo Fighters on stage at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Oregon, to play bass guitar on "Big Me", a song from the Foo Fighters' debut album Foo Fighters. Krist Novoselic_sentence_123

Ten months later, on October 6, 2018, Novoselic joined the band during an encore to play several Nirvana songs, with Dave Grohl on drums, Pat Smear on guitar, and John J. McCauley and Joan Jett filling in as their lead singer. Krist Novoselic_sentence_124

Political and social activism Krist Novoselic_section_5

Novoselic has had an interest in politics from high school. Krist Novoselic_sentence_125

This included the Northern Ireland conflict between Irish Nationalists and Unionists in Northern Ireland. Krist Novoselic_sentence_126

In 1992, the Washington state legislature attempted to pass a bill called the Erotic Music Law. Krist Novoselic_sentence_127

The law would allow courts to declare certain albums "erotic" by their content, and would make it illegal to sell those albums to those under the age of 18. Krist Novoselic_sentence_128

A lobbying group called the Washington Music Industry Coalition formed as a response to the bill. Krist Novoselic_sentence_129

Novoselic and Nirvana actively campaigned against the bill and performed a benefit concert for the lobbying group in September 1992. Krist Novoselic_sentence_130

Krist appeared on KOMO-TV's "Town Meeting" YES opposing parties. Krist Novoselic_sentence_131

In 1995, the Erotic Music Law was reintroduced to the Washington State Legislature as the Matters Harmful to Minors bill. Krist Novoselic_sentence_132

Noting that the music industry had serious clout in Seattle given the success of the scene, Novoselic proposed creating a political action committee, which was named JAMPAC (Joint Artists and Musicians Political Action Committee). Krist Novoselic_sentence_133

Over the next several years, JAMPAC fought a number of different issues, including the Teen Dance Ordinance, a 1985 law that strictly limited the ability of minors to attend shows. Krist Novoselic_sentence_134

With JAMPAC, Novoselic began to turn his focus more and more towards politics. Krist Novoselic_sentence_135

Novoselic remains active in politics making appearances to advocate electoral reform (especially instant-runoff voting and proportional representation) and running the website. Krist Novoselic_sentence_136

He considered a 2004 run for Lieutenant Governor of Washington as a Democrat, challenging an incumbent of the same party, but ultimately decided against it. Krist Novoselic_sentence_137

He also joined the board of FairVote, then the Center for Voting and Democracy, and was appointed chair in January 2008. Krist Novoselic_sentence_138

Novoselic's first book, Of Grunge and Government: Let's Fix This Broken Democracy, was published in October 2004. Krist Novoselic_sentence_139

It covers Novoselic's musical past, including Nirvana's rise to a worldwide phenomenon of the early 1990s. Krist Novoselic_sentence_140

It also covers his interest in politics, his support of electoral reform, and his belief in the need to return to grassroots movements and clean up politics overall. Krist Novoselic_sentence_141

He supported Democratic Senator Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, and in the primary. Krist Novoselic_sentence_142

He has since broken with the Democratic Party, partly because "it's a top-down structure" averse to reform from its grassroots. Krist Novoselic_sentence_143

In 2007, he made a donation to Libertarian Republican Congressman Ron Paul. Krist Novoselic_sentence_144

He withdrew from the campaign for county clerk of Wahkiakum County. Krist Novoselic_sentence_145

He was running under the "Grange Party". Krist Novoselic_sentence_146

He is a member of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry. Krist Novoselic_sentence_147

However, the Grange is not actually a political party. Krist Novoselic_sentence_148

He was running in order to protest Washington State's system, in which a candidate can claim any party as their own (real or fictional) without consent or support from the party. Krist Novoselic_sentence_149

Novoselic continues to support political reform, even looking at social networks such as Facebook and Twitter as major factors in shaping the political future. Krist Novoselic_sentence_150

He explained his support for fair voting reforms on C-SPAN's Washington Journal in 2012. Krist Novoselic_sentence_151

In an interview for Reason TV, Novoselic was asked how he described his political views, and he responded, "I'm an anarcho-capitalist, socialist, moderate... Krist Novoselic_sentence_152

I don't know" and continued to say that while his political views couldn't be easily categorized, he finds fault in the political philosophies of both the left and right-wing. Krist Novoselic_sentence_153

On his blog, he supported Lawrence Lessig and his political campaign. Krist Novoselic_sentence_154

During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Novoselic publicly supported and campaigned for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. Krist Novoselic_sentence_155

In June 2020, Novoselic made a Facebook post discussing President Trump's speech in response to unrest following the killing of George Floyd. Krist Novoselic_sentence_156

He called Trump "strong and direct", but added that he "should not be sending troops into states". Krist Novoselic_sentence_157

Following criticism, Novoselic made his Facebook page private and deleted his Twitter account. Krist Novoselic_sentence_158

After receiving backlash from the original post, Novoselic clarified, "As an avowed independent, I don't endorse a major party or candidate. Krist Novoselic_sentence_159

And it feels insane to have to say this, but I don't support fascism, and I don't support authoritarian state. Krist Novoselic_sentence_160

I believe in a civilized society and that we all have to work toward that." Krist Novoselic_sentence_161

In other media Krist Novoselic_section_6

In 2004, Novoselic's book Of Grunge and Government: Let's Fix This Broken Democracy! Krist Novoselic_sentence_162

was published. Krist Novoselic_sentence_163

In November 2007, Novoselic started writing blogs for the Seattle Weekly website. Krist Novoselic_sentence_164

He stopped writing for Seattle Weekly in September 2010. Krist Novoselic_sentence_165

Since 2007, Novoselic has been the DJ numerous times for Coast radio on KMUN. Krist Novoselic_sentence_166

Novoselic had a brief cameo in Bobcat Goldthwait's 2009 film World's Greatest Dad as a newspaper vendor. Krist Novoselic_sentence_167

In 2014, ahead of Nirvana's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Krist and Dave made guest appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Krist Novoselic_sentence_168

Novoselic has a blog entitled "Dream Journal". Krist Novoselic_sentence_169

Personal life Krist Novoselic_section_7

In 1989, Novoselic married Shelli Hyrkas, whom he had dated in high school. Krist Novoselic_sentence_170

They divorced in 1999. Krist Novoselic_sentence_171

In early 2004, he married American artist Darbury Ayn Stenderu, and they have two children. Krist Novoselic_sentence_172

They reside on a farm near Deep River, Washington, where they grow their own food. Krist Novoselic_sentence_173

Novoselic stated, "I live out in the country now and it's quiet and it's a place where I can think a lot." Krist Novoselic_sentence_174

Novoselic is an FAA-licensed pilot, earning a single-engine land rating after passing his flight test in April 2002. Krist Novoselic_sentence_175

He went on to earn a multi-engine pilot certificate in February 2018. Krist Novoselic_sentence_176

He has a strong interest in animals, geology, nature, and other sciences. Krist Novoselic_sentence_177

In 2016, Novoselic earned a BSc in social sciences from Washington State University Global Campus. Krist Novoselic_sentence_178
