Pearl Jam 20


I got a bit of a fright last year when I saw Blur albums advertised as "Fathers Day" gifts in HMV. Even more incomprehensible is the thought that Pearl Jam have now been going twenty years. The good news is there is an apparently excellent movie on the way to celebrate this fact.

Cameron Crowe, a long-time friend of the band and reknowned music nut, directs the movie, entitled Pearl Jam Twenty, which will be out in September . A special soundtrack for the movie, also curated by Crowe, will be released on the same day and will include two CDs of rare and unreleased tracks from across Pearl Jam's twenty year history. Check out the trailer below.
