Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 11/01/2011
"Sonic Youth kick all kinds of ass in these shows....We see Dinosaur on stage and all is revealed: here is Mascis in chaotic, awesome, guitar flight."
New York Times - 09/23/2011
"[Cobain's] presence elevates the footage from documentary to both fetish item and cautionary tale."

Product Description:

This important tour film-documentary details a 1991 Sonic Youth European tour in which Nirvana--then a cult local band--was the opening act. Considering that just a few months after this tour Nirvana's massive mainstream breakthrough completely changed the course of popular music, the film has managed to document the fledgling seeds of a major turning point in rock history. Along with great punk performances from Nirvana, Sonic Youth, The Ramones, Dinosaur Jr., and Babes in Toyland, the film also gives us glimpses into the personas of the band members. Most interesting to some people may be the backstage footage of the ever enigmatic and now famously deceased Kurt Cobain.
