Compared to the serious, less-than-accomodating nature of the tour with Neil Young, this tour was -- as clearly displayed in the 1991: The Year Punk Broke documentary -- nothing but fun. On the road with new labelmates Nirvana, whose "Nevermind" record wasn't released til a month later, Sonic Youth hit the European festival scene and unleashed riveting sets upon enormous, appreciative crowds. As mentioned, "1991: The Year Punk Broke" was filmed entirely on this tour, and it's a must-have for any SY fan.
