’1991: The Year Punk Broke’ Finally gets a DVD Release

- Advertisement -

The fabled rock documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke documented New York music pioneers Sonic Youth’s famous European tour featuring Nirvana has the opening act.  The film also featured the likes of Dinosaur Jr., Babes in Toyland, Gumball, The Ramones, Mark Arm, Dan Peters and Matt Lukin of Mudhoney, Courtney Love of Hole, and Joe Cole, who was murdered in a robbery three months after the tour ended… thus the film is dedicated to him. David Markey the director describes his film as “a home movie on acid, but for fans of Sonic Youth, it’s a must see and a thoroughly entertaining nostalgia trip.

Two decades since it’s release and now the film will finally make its way to DVD and is slated for a fall release. Why did it take so long? I can only guess it had something to do with obtaining the rights to the music featured in the film. The DVD will come packed with special features and extra material including a 42 minute Bonus film entitled The Blues Scale with previously unseen Sonic Youth & Nirvana performances including tracks such as Inhuman, White Kross, Orange Rolls/Angel’s Spit, Eric’s Trip, Chapel Hill, and In Bloom. The release will also include other sorts of never before seen off-stage and on-stage material, a running audio commentary track by Thurston Moore & Dave Markey, a photo slide show, trailers and many more surprises for all the hardcore punk fans.

Watch the opening below, but keep in mind the quality comes from a VHS copy.
