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’.

Field Music - Open Here (Album Review)
Fri 09 Feb 2018
That the Brewis brothers are now fathers to young children is evident on ‘Open Here’, and parenthood has given Field Music a brand new way of experiencing the world, its politics and its stereotypes.
Franz Ferdinand - Always Ascending (Album Review)
Tue 13 Feb 2018
The most telling thing about the early 2000s post-punk revival was its lack of staying power. Razorlight, Maxïmo Park, the Futureheads and countless others came flying out the gates, but by the end of the decade they had more or less faded out. You could cite over-saturation, or cycles in trends, as the reason behind that, but much of it had to do with the style's limited scope.

Awolnation - Here Come The Runts (Album Review)
Mon 12 Feb 2018
On 'Here Come The Runts', Awolnation’s third full album, Aaron Bruno’s ever-changing band of miscreants have leaned into powerful dirges that offer up spiky vocals alongside noisy riffs and textural switcheroos. It’s a fine turn from a band who typify a certain brand of metropolitan West Coast rock.
Ezra Furman - Transangelic Exodus (Album Review)
Wed 14 Feb 2018
Road songs are part of the fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. From the earliest greaser anthems through the open roads of west coast pop and manic rockabilly chase scenes, they’ve always been there. On ‘Transangelic Exodus’, Ezra Furman offers a new twist on the style, keeping both the wings and the wheels as he soundtracks “a personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga”.
