Into Paradise were a group from Dublin, Ireland whose influences included Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen. They formed in 1986 as 'Backwards into Paradise', and released their debut EP 'Blue Light' in 1989 on the independent label Setanta. Soon after came the EP 'Change' and the band's first full-length album, 'Under the Water'. There was only ever one fight on-stage, contray to popular belief, that was in 1988 more of a drunken scuffle in a small venue in dublin called the underground, it made good publicity thereafter.
