A live performance from the prolific Bob Mould.
Here, the iconic Hüsker Dü frontman is backed by drummer Brendan Canty (Fugazi), bassist/vocalist Jason Narducy (Rocket Over Sweden), and keyboards/vocals Richard Morel (Morel). This lineup was in the midst of 2005’s Body of Song tour, which marked Mould’s first non-solo tour in over a decade, and the first in which Hüsker Dü material was aired by a full band since their own 1988 split.
The quartet breeze through twenty-three songs from Hüsker Dü, Mould’s former band Sugar, and his own solo material (including a heart-wrenching renditition of Hüsker Düs ballad “Hardly Getting over It”). Mould’s in fine fettle here, his voice as plaintive and powerful as it was back in the Midwestern punk glory days.
