Fecal Matter was a short lived punk rock band from Aberdeen, Washington.
Fecal Matter was formed in early 1985 by guitarist Kurt Cobain, bassist Dale Crover, and drummer Greg Hokanson. The band recorded a demo on a 4 track recorder at Cobain's Aunt Mari Earle's house. Greg Hokanson departed the band in December of 1985. Buzz Osbourne and Mike Dillard joined the band in 1986.
Breakup and NirvanaEdit
The band disbanded in February of 1986. Kurt Cobain wanted to form a band with Krist Novelselic. Cobain gave Novelselic a Fecal Matter demo. Several months later, Novelselic finally listened to the demo and agreed to form a band together. They had a Creedance Clearwater Revival cover band that eventually disbanded a couple weeks later. In 1987 Kurt and Krist decided to make another band with Kurt on the guitar, Krist on the bass, and Aaron Burckhard on the drums. They had a couple name changes before settling in on Nirvana like Pen Cap Chew, The Stiffies, Skid Row, Angry Somaons, and Ted Ed Fred.
