Pinfield

Goodbye RXP, hello 120 Minutes in 2011 (Pinfield rises again)...

"MTV2's 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield, the re-invention of MTV's prolific music series, is set to return to MTV2 as an on-air monthly series beginning Saturday, July 30th at 1 AM ET/ 10 PM PT. Matt Pinfield, 120 Minutes' most beloved and respected host, returns to provide music fans with an unfiltered look at today's hottest alternative and indie artists, as well as emerging artists spanning multiple genres including hip-hop and rock through exclusive interviews and music videos.

"I am ecstatic to part of the rebirth of this iconic and influential music series," said Matt Pinfield. "While the new show on MTV2 will feature the same dose of progressive music fans of the original 120 Minutes embraced and loved, we'll now be expanding outside the alternative music universe to feature a myriad of emerging artists and sounds from a variety of genres."

The debut episode of MTV2's 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield will feature exclusive interviews with Dave Grohl, PJ Harvey, Kings of Leon, Dangermouse with Danielle Luppi, Das Racist, Sleigh Bells, Lupe Fiasco, Zach Braff, Black Angels, Fitz and the Tantrums and Theophilus London. Fans will also see the uncensored version of Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" music video, Mumford and Sons VH1 Unplugged performance of "Roll Your Stone," the music video for Cults' "Abducted" and more. - says the MTV press release

12 x 120. That equals 1440 minutes of 120 Minutes (a year).

Did anyone actually like Matt Pinfield when he was first on MTV? Talk about a starfucker.

Wow. Freaking Dave groll? Kings of leon? The Jeremy video? Goddamn you are edgy 120 minutes and MTV.

Matt Pinfield kind of reminded me of that Chris Farley Saturday Night Live celebrity interview character.

It was hard to dislike him for being kind of a dorky unabashed indie rock fanboy, but he was pretty useless as an interviewer and what have you.

Please someone tap Pinfield on the shoulder and break it to him that the 1990s ended quite some time ago.

Also, love that press release, Pinfield "beloved"? That's just ridiculous.

Actual music on MTV? That's news itself.

think he'' get drtunk and do coke on this show like he would right before work at RXP? one time the MD there had to go to his house in Harrison, NJ at 7am in the morning and beg him to come to the station and do his shift. guy wouldnt even open the door, thats how much alcohol/drugs he had out in the house. and they paid this guy almost 500k/year? what a joke.

matt pinfield was terrible on 120 minutes

he killed the show, and that"s not some minority opinion. ask anyone who used to watch it in the 90's

Can Harry Potter make Matt Pinfield disappear?

The guy has forgotten more about music then you will ever know. You sound bitterly unemployed

I don't care if Pinfield snorted the whole of Peru and dranks rivers of whiskey. He taught me more about music that any other vj or dj. I listened to him on 101.9 almost every morning and he did great interviews and told great stories. You can talk all the shit you want about him but he's got fans, and doesn't have to hide behind Anonymous like you do. and as the article here says it all Pinfield Rises Again!
