Thanks to our friend Marcus for sending us this pic of Kurt Cobain as a DJ lovingly crafted in Lego.

Kurt was a big fan of Glasgow bands and cited The Vaselines, The Pastels and Teenage Fanclub among his favourites.

According to Everett True’s book, Nirvana: The Biography, Cobain once bumped into singer Mary Lou Lord outside a club in Boston.

He asked who her favourite bands were and she reeled off The Pastels, The Vaselines, Daniel Johnston and Teenage Fanclub.

‘Bullshit,’ Kurt replied. ‘They’re my favourite bands in that exact order’.

If there are any more musical Lego legends out there then we would love to see them. Until then, we give you The Gnome Roses.
