Inexplicably, Paranoid Visions have managed to survive 40 years apart from the music industry (as opposed to being a part of the music industry). Formed in 1981 initially as Insane Youth (had they kept this name, it would now be deemed ironic!), over these 40 years Paranoid Visions have played all over Europe, Ireland, UK, USA, Japan and have released upwards of 45 records.
Fiercely independent and embracing the DIY ethos of early punk rock, the band has existed through stubbornness and will continue to do so until the desire to express themselves and their music, opinions, lyrics and art has ceased.
The 40th anniversary of their first gigs and releases will be celebrated throughout 2023 and will include gigs in Ireland, UK, Poland and America.
2023 also sees the release and screening of the documentary “Outsider Artists – the Story of Paranoid Visions” ... but more about that later!!!
