Krist Novoselic’s Biography

Krist Novoselić was born on May 16, 1965 in Compton, California. His parents Chris and Maria Novoselić are Croatian immigrants, Mr. Novoselić arrived in the United States in 1963 and a year later he arrived who would be his wife. They got a house in Gardena, California and Mr. Novoselic obtained work as a driver of a water truck.

In 1967, when Krist was 2 years old, his brother Robert Novoselić was born. By then, the family was moving constantly from home until finally they arrived at a modest house. In 1973, the sister of Krist and Robert, Dina Novoselić was born, after they changed their house again.

“Robert andwere kind of big boys and we liked to get into trouble,” says Krist about his childhood. “Whenhit tires and things like that, my dad had to reprimand us and sometimes he beat us because only he knew how to do it, we were afraid of him but this does not mean he was an abuser,do not think he abused us. He would slap us for everything,think it was the law of action and reaction, we would throw stones at houses, at cars, at that time the vandalism would cost a lot, we would really dedicate ourselves to him, crashing eggs … “


In 1974 they moved to Aberdeen, Krist was 9 years old and says that by then his brother and he had straightened a bit. The cost of the properties in Southern California was very high and that is why the family was able to get a better house for little money in Aberdeen. Also in that area many Croatian families lived. Mr. Novoselić got a job as a machinist in one of the many mills in the town.

At that age, Krist liked to listen to bands like Led Zeppelin, Devo, Black Sabbath and Aerosmith while the others listened to “Top Forty”, maybe because this is what the local station played.

By June 1980, Krist’s parents worried about the depression that affected him so they sent him to his relatives in Croatia. He loved living there and made many friends. For him the schools were excellent. He had heard of something called “Punk rock” and discovered Sex Pistols, The Ramones and also some Yugoslav punk bands. “This did not impress me very much, it was just music that did not mean anything, it was just music thatliked.” After a year of living in Croatia his parents called him back.

“I felt in a strange world, like in limbo,” Krist said, and started drinking and smoking marijuana excessively. “I’ve always been a heavy drinker,” he says, “Whendrink,do not stop,like to drink because you’re in a strange world of caricature where everything goes, your vision becomes blurred and nothing and everything makes you sensitive. it is a different reality and a different world in which you are conscious “.

Krist became well known at parties. “You only had to go to parties and people told you things like Hey Novie!”.

Matt Lukin comments: “They always knew him as the great guy because he was always doing weird things, they thought he was strange and weird, and when he went to parties he would jump from one side to the other”.

There were many people who joined him to leave but he felt very pressured to call them “friends”. “I used to hang out with them becausedid not have anything else to do,” says Krist. This was a bit weird and uncomfortable. “He finally got a job at the local Taco Bell, worked every night and did not socialize with anyone, just saved money.

Also during this work he met a young man he befriended, his name was Buzz Osborne. In his senior year of high school, he had bought a car, a set of horns and a guitar. He took lessons with his brother Robert and told his teacher, Warren Manson (the same one who taught Kurt) that he liked Blues a lot. A few months later, he left the practices. He threw himself on the bed and patiently worked on recordings of B.B. King with his brother.

A short time later, Krist’s brother, Robert, brought his friend Kurt Cobain to the Novoselic house. When Kurt asked about the crashing noise emanating from the overhead stereo, Robert replied, “Oh that’s my brother Krist who is listening to Punk Rock.” Kurt thought it was cool.

Krist graduated from high school in 1983, that same year at last Krist and Kurt begin to play in a band together, soon after their parents divorced. This was a bad time for him because he had also had surgery on his face, the doctor cut a small section of jaw and moved some teeth forward to correct an anomaly (I looked like “Jay Leno” said).

Krist’s jaw was strange for about 6 weeks. Whenwent to parties,had to carry a couple of weird cutters with him in casehad to cut something so it would not get stuck in my throat. “When all this was over he sent everything to the devil,” says Lukin, and went back to making his loqueras.

“After a while, the cures ended andhad a new face,” said Krist.

At school he also met Shelli who remembers him as a “clown of the kind who was always kidding”. A short time later the two were friends. Shelli left her senior year of high school, took a job at Mc Donald’s and got her own apartment on Market Street, in front of the fire station. On his way to work he went through “The Foster Painting”, where Krist worked and they started talking. She got her number and started calling it, they had a lot in common, and by March 1985 they were going to Shelli’s apartment, to listen to punk rock and also to shows, after a while, they started going out.

The relationship between Krist and Shelli, was always very good, in March 1986, the two moved to Arizona in search of work, then in winter of that year they returned to Hoquiam, Wa, and also by that time they became vegetarians.

Between 1985 and 1986, Krist also played in some bands alongside Buzz Osborne. For 1986 and 1987, the relationship between Krist and Kurt increased, as well as relations with Buzz, going to the Los Melvins rehearsals and accompanying them at one or another presentation. Thus was born the seminal group of what would later Nirvana: Ed, Ted and Fred. Cobain on drums, Novoselic on guitar and a bassist named Steve, who disappeared shortly, leaving Kurt and Krist free to play with any of The Melvins that were available, or to play versions of Creedence Clearwater Revival at local clubs . In the summer of 1987, Krist and Shelli lived with Kurt and Tracy Marander in a small apartment.
