A new project has gone up on Kickstarter for a documentory of Smart Studio called “The Smart Studio Story“.
Feature length documentary about the legendary recording facility, Smart Studios, and the Midwest link to American rock history.
The Smart Studios Story
If you’ve ever been touched by the music of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, L7, Killdozer, Die Kreuzen, Tar Babies, Against Me!, Death Cab For Cutie, etc. you’ve been touched by the music created at Smart Studios, the legendary Midwestern recording facility owned by Butch Vig and Steve Marker. The music and the scene all collided in a two-story brick building sitting virtually unnoticed on the east side of Madison, WI. (Click on above photo for film trailer!)

“Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”
