If you’ve never heard of Bob Mould then shame on you. One third of the greatest US hardcore punk band Husker Du, a guitarist and lyricist of the highest order. Husker Du’s concept album ‘Zen Arcade’ is a thing of beauty and ranked #33 on Rolling Stone’s greatest albums of the 90s top 100. Go out this instant and get a copy on double vinyl, listen, then get a ticket for Bob. He was also the driving force behind 90s alternative rockers Sugar. More relaxed these days than the hedonistic heroin mayhem that ultimately split Husker Du, but still producing high quality music. Revered by his peers he is touring in support of his twelfth solo studio album ‘Patch the Sky’.
