Nirvana's 1991 Paramount Theatre Gig to Stream Today for One Day Only

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Nirvana's groundbreaking ‘Nevermind’ album release this week, a special airing of the full Paramount Theatre show in Seattle, filmed back in 1991, will be available for fans to watch in its entirety on VEVO today from 5pm in the UK - for a 24 hour period only.

The Paramount concert, transferred from 16mm film and multi-track audio, is the only known Nirvana concert shot to film and will also be aired for a special Anniversary showing this Halloween on Monday, October 31st - but today will be your first crack at seeing the stunning show in its entirety.

The entire show from Live at the Paramount has been digitally re-mastered and looks like it was filmed yesterday. The DVD of the show is also now available in 1080p high-definition picture, uncompressed 5.1 surround sound and stereo on stand-alone Blu-ray or DVD. It is also included in the Super Deluxe 20th Anniversary Edition of Nevermind, released this Monday 26th September via Universal Music Catalogue.

Two tracks from this show have been released over the last month, so head over to the band’s VEVO - you’ll find footage of ‘Territorial Pissings’ and ‘Breed’.

It's Loud And Wild, But I Swear It Feels Soft: Beach Slang's James Alex Talks Quiet Slang
Thu 17 May 2018
When we think of Beach Slang, we think of screaming our lungs out with our best friends, t-shirts soaked with sweat and beer, as a man in a crushed velvet jacket leads a dive bar chorus. We certainly do not envision being brought to the brink of tears by the gentle melodies of the same songs after they have been recast with a hauntingly beautiful orchestral backdrop. But that’s the alchemy at the heart of James Alex’s Quiet Slang experiment.

Peace - Kindness is The New Rock and Roll (Album Review)
Tue 15 May 2018
When Peace burst onto the indie-rock scene five years ago, amid a maelstrom of tie-dye t-shirts and reverb-smothered, well, everything, it was clear they wanted to sound big. The Worcester four-piece set the foundations with their debut LP, ‘In Love,’ and built further with its grander follow-up, ‘Happy People’. But, as ‘Kindness is The New Rock and Roll’ shows, bigger doesn’t always mean better.

Ash - Islands (Album Review)
Thu 31 May 2018
Some albums make an instant impact, others take a little time to reveal their charms. The quick-fix magic of the former often wears off swiftly, while the latter usually possess a depth of quality that screams ‘built to last’. With that in mind, any initial feelings of disappointment towards ‘Islands’, the seventh effort of Ash’s eternally youthful career, should be shelved until its stealthy allure has been given the opportunity to sink in.
