"This is bootleg merchandise which is hiding behind the fact that small, Third World countries put a seal of approval 1 on them," said their lawyer, Paul Licalsi. They charge in a federal lawsuit that the International Collectors Society of Owings Mills, Md., vio- lated licensing laws by selling stamps bearing Beatles likenesses from such nations as Chad, Madagascar, St. Vincent and Tanzania. The lawsuit said the company even worked with some nations to get the stamps made, even though a minimal number were actually sold in post offices in those countries. "I don't believe the Beatles are any kind of cultural icons in Tanzania," Licalsi said. "This is pure profit, and a ripoff of Beatles fans and a ripoff of the Beatles." sale and chicken noodle dinner. 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Ninth and Iron. 825-6508, 825-4798. • MUSIC: Mike Mattson and Teresa Weaver, folk singers, 7:30 p.m., The Coffee Gallery, 104 S.

Deification happens. It's a status attained by many a posthumous pop star, from Elvis Presley to Sid Vicious . The deceased's status climbs if the death was violent or unexpected, if the artist was young and had not yet peaked. The artist, as well as his or •her music, is frozen in time, forever full of unrealized potential. Reputations, artistic ones anyway, rarely suffer. KurtCobain's death in 1994 was violent—a self-inflicted shotgun blast to the head — if not wholly unexpected. The singer- guitarist-songwriter for Nirvana recorded and released a song called "I Hate Myself and I Want To Die" in his final months. You can't get more emotionally naked or express a greater degree of self-loathing. Spokesman for a disaffected generation? Sure, but he said he felt like a fraud, going through the motions night after night. But while they were a working band, Nirvana was the top dog of the alt-rock scene. Potent, powerful, succeeding on their own terms. Now, defunct, they're perceived as godheads. Without them — hey, without "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to be specific — there would be no Bush, no 311, no Everclear on the charts. No massive tidal wave of the "modern rock" format on FM radio. Given all that, perhaps it's no surprise that the early critical line on Nirvana's 16-track live, ultra-plugged-in disc, "From the Muddy Banks of The Wishkah," seems to be both reverent and raving. But we're not going to join the rave parade here. "From the Muddy Banks of The Wishkah" is a representative document of Nirvana's pummeling, rage-and-angst-filled grunge rock. It even begins with a series of inchoate Cobain screams, taking up nearly a minute and showing us this is no "Unplugged" delicacy. It's also annoying, probably part of the intent. "From the Banks ... " gives us noise and then more noise. None of the songs tower above the studio versions, and one of them, "Milk It," is just about unbearable. The songs — from 1989 to 1994 — are familiar to fans, available on other albums. Only "Spank Thru," an early Sub Pop single, might qualify as a rarity. Keep in mind that as excited as we often get about live albums — relishing the chance to hear the music raw and unprocessed — rarely do they hold up. Here's another mystery. "Unplugged," Nirvana's other live album released after Cobain's death, contained some surprising, dazzling covers, most notably David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World." Why is there no version of Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused," Wipers' "D-7," Devo's "Turnaround" or the Velvet Underground's "Here She Comes Now." All of which appear on a Nirvana bootleg CD called "Complete Cover Versions." Released here, they might have lightened the load Of Being Nir- van, or allowed a glimpse into the band's roots, conventional and otherwise. Another missed opportunity is the breathtaking, Sonic Youth- like feedback-laced jam Nirvana unleashed at the end of their concerts during the 1993 tour. To its credit, "From The Banks . ..." is pretty much an all-out, assault, and a decent mix of pre- "Nevermind" (semi-obscurity) and post-"Nevermind" (fame) material. But it wears. With the similar, if sped-up, tempos, the familiar guitar grind and the beyond-the-brink, shredded vocals hurled relentlessly, it's less a revelation than a recitation.
