‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: The Sisters of Mercy, Sonic Youth, Nitzer Ebb at Reading — 1991

The Sisters of Mercy and Dave Kendall

For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we present a series of clips of what host Dave Kendall announces as “the first-ever international edition of ‘120 Minutes,'” broadcast in August 1991 from England’s Reading Festival. As you can see from the footage below, Kendall chats up The Sisters of Mercy’s Andrew Eldritch and members of Sonic Youth, Nitzer Ebb and James.

  1. Still waiting on that record Andrew!

  2. Is that Courtney Love in the background of the Sonic Youth video?

  3. Funny that Nirvana didn’t get much of a mention, but became the biggest band of all from this festival. And yes, Courtney was always a fame whore.

    And where was that album again Mr. Eldritch?

    I had tickets to that Sisters “meeting of the minds” tour that got cancelled. They were the only band on that list I cared about anyway. Honestly it was canceled for low ticket sales. How could that compete with the first Lollapalooza.
