LATEST: Former Nirvana bassist KRIST NOVOSELIC plans to take on a political career once he's left the music business.

The COME AS YOU ARE rocker, 38, has worked with two new bands, SWEET 45 and Eyes Adrift, since Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide in April 1994.

But now both projects are defunct, the star is having to look at other career options.

He says of his political yearnings, "I'm relatively young and I want to follow my compulsions. I have big plans for 2004. Next year will be a pivotal year politically for every one of us in the USA and for myself, even more so.

"You'll all hear about my plans soon enough."
