While he reportedly turned down an offer to join Grohl's band, the Foo Fighters, Novoselic has continued to be involved in the music world. After Nirvana, he formed Sweet 75, which produced one self-titled album released in 1997. Novoselic also directed and produced the film L7: The Beauty Process, which followed the struggles of an all-female hardcore group. In 1999, Novoselic played with Jello Biafra, formerly the lead singer of the Dead Kennedy, and Kim Thayil,
a guitarist who used to be with Soundgarden. The trio performed at a special show in Seattle as part of a protest against the World Trade Organization.
In 2002, Novoselic was part of another supergroup, Eyes Adrift. The band featured Curt Kirkwood, previously with the Meat Puppets, and Bud Gaugh, the drummer of defunct band Sublime. This trio did not last long, however. They produced one self-titled album together. Novoselic currently plays with the California punk band Flipper.
