You can pre-order this shit now!

This also means it’s been 20 years since I walked into my local Brashes record store and purchased In Utero on cassette (*gasp*) for my sister’s birthday. It was equally the best present I have ever bought anyone else and the best gift I enjoyed that I did not receive personally! The gift that keeps on giving, perhaps?

I was so enraptured with In Utero that I remember getting really excited when I read in the local street press the following year that Nirvana were rumoured to return to Australia to tour. A few short months later Cobain passed away of his own accord and I was devastated.

All I had left to console myself was In Utero.
