‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: The Sisters of Mercy’s Andrew Eldritch talks to Dave Kendall — 1990

For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we present this 1990 appearance by Andrew Eldtritch of The Sisters of Mercy, who chats with host Dave Kendall about the band’s then-new third (and still final) album Vision Thing, in segments sandwiched between a showing of the video for that record’s epic single, “More.” The footage, courtesy of , is a bit grainy, but the interview sounds fine.







  1. I want more! Great album.

  2. Notch Johnson

    Saw sisters touring in support if this record. Loved them!

    Oddly enough, gene lives Jezebel was the opening act. Weird but still a great show.

  3. I actually taped this interview that night – the “no US tour” remark put me in a rage at the time. The later 1991 one with Public Enemy was great, aside from whitebread “Young Black Teenagers” being possibly the worst opener ever – quite a feat considering how many punk shows I’ve seen. I may convert and upload my VHS, as this clip can definitely be upgraded.

  4. Nothing’s funnier than watching Andrew Von Eldritch trying to not be goth. Even when he’s mumbling an incoherent commentary about Kuwait and Bush, it’s goth as fuck. “Wonderfully arrogant and very droll” – sums up the Sisters as well as anything else I’ve heard! Bloody brilliant. And yeah, I saw them with Public Enemy too (in Atlanta). Weird show.

  5. When Vision Thing came out, I hated it. During that time period, I’d prefer listening to Ohio’s THE WAKE and their debut album “Masked”, opposed to hearing “Vision Thing.”
