There’s a lot of good stuff to say about the reissue but there are some problems too.
Pim went to the Melkweg to check out the Nirvana – Live And Loud screening.

Rolling Stone has unveiled the details of the upcoming 20th anniversary release of Nirvana’s In Utero.
Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear playing with Paul McCartney at the Hurricane Sandy charity concert in New York.
We’re giving away 3 Nirvana – In Utero 20th anniversary 2CD Deluxe Editions.
So if you want to see the full concert before it actually gets released, head over to the Melkweg next week.
Probably for the Sound City documentary. In other news: Kurt Cobain was recording a solo album at the time of his death.
Turns out, we weren’t that far off with our predictions.
Coming out in September 2013 to celebrate the record’s 20th anniversary.
Featuring an animated look at the packaging, parts of (the new mix? of) Heart-Shaped Box, All Apologies, The Man Who Sold The World, Scentless Apprentice and the “Forgotten Tune”.
[youtube]tsfNpkxPWiQ[/youtube] 20 years of In Utero coming up… Curious to see what they’ll release. Probably the complete MTV Live & Loud show on a DVD. Maybe a 2 CD set with the original album (original Steve Albini mix maybe?) and the b-sides.
We’re giving away 3 x 2 tickets to the Nirvana – Live And Loud screening at the Melkweg, Amsterdam (NL).
Pim had a chat with Ryan Young of Off With Their Heads.
