MTV is relaunching 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield, the series and host that shaped so many of our tastes for so many years back when that M stood for something meaningful. They’ve also launched the companion series 120 Seconds, which is, literally, a sign of the times. I was honored to be featured for its premiere last week. Matt and I sat in Hi-Fi bar on Ave. A in the East Village on the eve of SXSW and talked about new bands for oh about 120 minutes without stop — an easy thing to do with someone as gracious, engaged, and knowledgeable as he is. Lots of good talk and good bands didn’t make the cut, but such is the series’ conceit. Hope you enjoy. If not, it only cost you two minutes.
