20th September 1990. Sonic Youth, These Mortal Souls. Hummingbird. Birmingham. £6.50.

These Mortal Souls were a fair warm up for the band everyone wanted to see back in ’90.

Rate 5 out of 10.

Sonic Youth had recently been featured on The South Bank Show and this was post Daydream Nation but just before Goo I think.

I can remember the track Tom Violence standing out for some reason, not a great fan of the track but live it took on a new dimension.

Thurston Moore had about 7 guitars lined up on stage on a rack and he changed practically every song.

The attached video is from The South Bank Show and showcases where they were at back in 1990. If you have not already seen it do check it out it’s pretty near perfect – the ultimate in alt rock.

Rate 10 out of 10.
