I've been listening to this man for over 30 years. At the same time that my brother came home from college for Christmas in 1986 with Hüsker Dü records under his arm, a friend of mine played their live cover of The Beatles's "Helter Skelter" on 12" vinyl through my high school's theatre PA system.
I had never heard this unique blend of melody & cacophony at once.
I was changed. Very changed.
30 years later, Bob Mould - former lead singer of Hüsker Dü & Sugar - still brings the same raw energy & melody to his music.
