â€œI really donâ€™t know much about The Raincoats except that they recorded some music that has affected me so much that whenever I hear it Iâ€™m reminded of a particular time in my life when I was (shall we say) extremely unhappy, lonely and bored. If it werenâ€™t for the luxury of putting on that scratchy copy of The Raincoatsâ€™ first record, I would have had very few moments of peaceâ€. Kurt Cobain in 1993.
