For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we present this short 1993 interview of The Sisters of Mercy frontman Andrew Eldtritch by host Lewis Largent, filmed while the Sisters were opening for Depeche Mode’s Songs of Faith and Devotion tour in London.
Eldritch does his best to antagonize the host, claiming to be a fan of Depeche Mode (though he’d famously say, “Enjoy the puppet show” before ceding the stage to the headliners that night) and denying he worked slowly, saying, instead that, “I throw a lot of stuff out. Because we have quality control.” He also tells Largent that new music is on the way: “Right now I’m starting work on an album. Or two.”
