‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: New Model Army’s Slade the Leveller talks to Kevin Seal — 1987

For the first post-hiatus installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we roll the clocks back to an interview segment culled from an early episode, aired in 1987, that finds host Kevin Seal chatting with Justin Sullivan, the frontman of U.K. rockers New Model Army, who’s ID’d in the episode by his early-career stage name, Slade the Leveller.

Sullivan tells Seal why and he and so many other young Brits adopted stage names as they were getting started in music, and goes on to discuss the NMA’s classic single “51st State.”

Check it out below:






  1. Kevin Seal is indimidated by Slade’s intelligence.

  2. It’s great seeing old footage of Sullivan, even if it is with the annoying and awkward Kevin Seal. New Model Army is one of the all-time greatest bands. Every record that they have made holds up.
