Pearl Jam: Fjord Fiestas

Andrew Mueller, Melody Maker, 20 February 1992

Like Nirvana and Jane's Addiction before them, PEARL JAM look set to become this year's big US rock event. With Top 20 single 'Alive', they've already come from straight outta nowhere to capture critical approval and public imagination alike. This time next year, the Seattle-based band will be one of the biggest acts on the planet. ANDREW MUELLER joined the band on the road in Scandinavia, saw two astonishing concerts and talked to singer Eddie Vedder about American derangement.
