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
Changes- Sugar
The End Of Things- Bob Mould
The Descent- Bob Mould
I Don’t Know You Anymore- Bob Mould
You Say You- Bob Mould
Voices In My Head- Bob Mould
Makes No Sense At All- Husker Du
Hold On- Bob Mould
Hey Mr. Grey- Bob Mould
Could You Be The One- Husker Du
If I Can’t Change Your Mind- Sugar
Tomorrow Morning- Bob Mould
Keep Believing- Bob Mould
Losing Time- Bob Mould
Hoover Dam- Sugar

As always- Enjoy.
