Bob Mould, punk rock Godfather and cultural icon dropped by the NPR studios to do a very impromptu 4-song set. Three of the songs were from his latest album Beauty And Ruin (a personal favorite that spends a lot of time on my turn table lately) plus one classic Hüsker Dü song, ‘Makes No Sense At All.’
It’s easy to forget just how many songs from his career have been part of the soundtrack of my life. With so many incarnations (he also fronted the early 90s band Sugar), unless you’re engaged enough, you might not realize you know that many songs from his catalogue.
Anyway.. pick up the vinyl of his album here. Enjoy the show.
