Omnivore Recordings next month will reissue seminal college-rock act Camper Van Beethoven’s two major-label albums — 1988’s Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart and 1989’s Key Lime Pie, with its hit cover of Status Quo’s “Pictures of Matchstick Men” — in expanded CD versions and on 180-gram vinyl.
For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we head back to 1988 for this “120 X-Ray” spotlighting what Kurt Loder refers to as “the biggest cult band in the land”: Camper Van Beethoven. This segment was filmed in Miami Beach, Fla., while the band was on tour in support of Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart.
