Live Video: Bob Mould @ Bumbershoot Music Lounge

photo by Dave Lichterman (view set)

Nearly 35 years in music and Bob Mould shows no signs of slowing down! From his early punk roots with Hüsker Dü in the 1980s through his alternative pop years with Sugar in the 1990s, and in the years between and afterwards with his ten solo albums, the veteran songwriter has explored a variety of styles but has returned again and again to the smart, muscular guitar rock he does so well. If you didn’t know better, you might think Silver Age, his most recent release, with all its ferocious attacks and anthemic hooks, was cut decades earlier. But also, it’s Mould’s decades of wisdom, experience, and yes, heartbreak, that really give the songs their edge. On stage, he doesn’t hold back either, as you’ll see during his recent set for KEXP’s broadcast from the Bumbershoot Music Lounge. Watch below as Bob Mould, joined by Superchunk’s drummer Jon Wurster and touring bassist Jason Narducy (Verbow), tear through a blistering set featuring a few of his latest solo songs, a few Sugar hits, and a few Hüsker Dü classics.
