Kurt Cobain The Shield Around the K

“The Shield Around the K” is the title of the 2000 book about the independent record label K Records in Olympia, Washington, co-founded, owned and operated by Kurt Cobain’s friend Calvin Johnson.

Sometime after Kurt’s band Nirvana took off he got a tatoo supposedly with the record labels logo.  In fact, it was Kurt Cobain who came up with and designed the logo one day while I was getting ready to have a portrait picture taken with my brother.  The logo is also the same color as my shirt.  I actually got upset with him because he wouldn’t let me straighten the pin and this is why the logo for K Records is askew.
