Stopgap compilations of scattered singles and demos rarely give us any real insight into a band's deepest concerns. But Incesticide is no typical compilation album, just as Nirvana was no typical band. In his essay, Seth Colter Walls looks at the way Kurt Cobain used Incesticide to artfully re-assemble and re-contextualize his own history during a critical juncture in Nirvana's pop ascendancy, creating a patchwork quilt of song-styles and influences that continues to tell us much about Cobain and his band that their big albums can't.
