I was late to the Bob Mould party...Husker Du required so much thinking and when I was 17 I did not do that.
Then the best pop song ever is released when I was 20...and I loved it. I was so embarrassed to love it, but lots of people loved it.
Now- I finally got to see him live at 43. THere is nothing compared to what he leaves on the stage when he does a show. The man gives 100%. So worthy of a nod here...My goodness what a weekend I had.
That’s a Good Idea-Sugar

The Descent- Bob Mould
I Don’t Know You Anymore- Bob Mould

Hey Mr. Grey- Bob Mould
Could You Be The One- Husker Du
If I Can’t Change Your Mind- Sugar
