    New Years Day Nirvana Special - Paradox Play 'In Utero'


    Facebook Event Page ::

    Cork based Alternative Rock band Paradox will be kicking off the new year in true Grunge style on Sunday, January 1st at the Crane Lane Theatre, Cork playing Nirvana's classic album 'In Utero' in full. Paradox have already played a number of full house Nirvana nights at the Crane Lane as well as more recently having played the 25 year anniversary of Nirvana's legendary Cork gig at Sir Henry's.
    Paradox were originally formed in 1997 and have released 4 albums to date. Their most recent album 'Chapters' was launched in 2015 and has been gaining momentum since it's release including national radio airplay on the likes of Today FM and 2FM. The bands most recent music video for their single 'EAT' was also nominated and screened at this years Indie Cork Film Festival.
    The music of Paradox was hugely influenced by the Grunge era of the 90's which ultimately all started with Nirvana.
    One review from once noted :: 'Maybe the ultimate compliment you can pay to this album is that you could listen to it between Nirvana's In Utero and Alice in Chains Dirt and it's every bit as good'.

    Which brings us to Nirvana's third studio album 'In Utero'.

    'In Utero' is the third and final Nirvana studio album, released on September 21, 1993, by DGC Records. Nirvana intended the record to diverge significantly from the polished production of its previous album, Nevermind (1991). To capture a more abrasive and natural sound, the group hired engineer Steve Albini to record In Utero during a two-week period in February 1993 at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. The music was recorded quickly with few studio embellishments, and the song lyrics and album packaging incorporated medical imagery that conveyed frontman Kurt Cobain's outlook on his publicized personal life and his band's newfound fame.
    In Utero entered the Billboard 200 chart at number one and received critical acclaim as a drastic departure from Nevermind. The albums most notable singles are 'Heart Shaped Box' and 'All Apologies' as well as the stand out track 'Rape Me' which was considered controversial at the time.
    Nirvana embarked on its first American tour in two years to promote the album shortly after it's release. The band began a six-week European leg of the tour in February 1994, but it was cancelled after Cobain suffered a drug overdose in Rome on March 6th. Cobain agreed to enter drug rehabilitation, but the singer went missing soon afterwards, and on April 8th he was found dead in his Seattle home. Although the albums and bands success seemed to be short lived at the time 'In Utero' has continued to perform commercially and gather critical praise as one of the all time classic albums of the 90's.
    To commemorate the album's 20th anniversary, DGC reissued In Utero in several different formats in September 2013.
    Let's relive Nirvana's classic follow up to Nevermind with Paradox playing 'In Utero' in it's entirety on New Years Day, Sunday, Jan. 1st 2017 at the Crane Lane Theatre, Cork. Doors 9pm. Free Admission.
