Description

Details

A visual document of Sonic Youth's 1991 European festival tour, which saw the aristocracy of the American Underground making their first inroads into the mainstream.

Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore offers sardonic swipes at his band's position as the Royal Family of Alternative Rock, whilst a pre-Nevermind Nirvana skulk in the background, along with fellow courtesans Babes in Toyland, Dinosaur Jr, Gumball and The Ramones.

Once staple VHS viewing for hip 90s teenagers, now restored and available on DVD for the first time to mark the 20th anniversary of the tour, the film offers an evocative snapshot of a heady time for the American indie scene.
