14 jun 2012, 09:07 av CortezZumaSun 3 Jun – Bob Mould performs 'Copper Blue'
We hebben het gehaald. Zonder aandhoudend gepiep in onze oren. Bob Mould sloeg toe in de AB met het geniale gitaargeweld van ‘Copper Blue’, dat legendarische eerste Sugar-album uit 1992. De gitaarnoiseveteraan, die onze eeuwige dankbaarheid heeft voor diens sublieme noisy power gitaarpunkpop van Hüsker Dü, imponeerde ook nu weer. Gitaar omgorden, meteen de beuk erin, geen franjes, geen gedoe, gaan tegen 200 per uur en in your face hypernerveuze melodieuze power gitaarrocksalvo’s afvuren. Zo was het bij Sugar. Zo doet Mould dat nog altijd. Zo-ook gisteren in de AB Box. No surrender.
Mould en de zijnen deden meer dan overtuigen met de integrale uitvoering van ‘Copper Blue’. Albumopener ‘The Act We Act’ was vanzelfsprekend ook de setopener en zette meteen de toon: pure power en full speed ahead. Het rockte als de beesten en de geluisstorm was voorbij voor je het goed en wel besefte. Maar je had ondertussen wel klassiekers zoals ‘A Good Idea’…
18 maj 2012, 17:27 av pianistman1337Howdy, all! My good friend Nigel and I are going to be journaling and listening through the Superchunk discography, and I welcome you to listen through with us! We'll be going by year.
This year covers a 7" when they went by the name Chunk, and the Slack Motherfucker 7"!
(These songs were later collected on the Tossing Seeds compilation, in case those seven-inches were too difficult to acquire.)
The first seven-inch is a quick little blast of music. I think it is best viewed as foreshadowing of what is to come, as What I Do and My Noise serve as a formidable double-punch of power-pop with some heavier influence. My Noise, especially, comes away as the winner of the two. Train From Kansas City goes by without too much affair. The stutter-step drum beat is super nice, and creates an off-kilter feel while the rest of the song is really nothing too special.
Too not acknowledge Slack Motherfucker would be a huge error; as its melody and angsty job-related…

3 jul 2011, 23:38 av rospaya2A pretty uneventful week filled a great deal by boredom and activities derived from it.
Husker Du takes the first spot again. I love the band and still find extraordinary songs that take new meanings once you listen to them with more attention. Despite that, most of the time I hit "play" on their playlist on my Foobar or phone is out of boredom. I'm too lazy and too lethargic to find new stuff or listen to something I should have a long time ago.
I was in the mood for something dirty and psychedelic so I turned to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, a band I really liked for a long time but only get the urge to listen to them once in three months. They managed to get more than 150 scrobbles in my library but it feels like more. Their flavor of garage rock is really a gem and I'm making a mental note to listen to their newer albums.
A huge majority of the music I listen to falls under one wide genre: rock. With branches like punk, metal and garage it sounds wider but it's still more limited than I'd like it to be. …

3 maj 2011, 13:18 av dandyboy73Firstly, a quick dip back into my March blog: The Raveonettes' Raven in the Grave was SOOO worth sticking with: while the first cursory listens revealed a couple of diamonds, further listening revealed layers of glorious sound, the bands usual rock'n'roll influences spliced with late 80s and early 90s indie rock, maybe like Buddy Holly would've sounded covering pre-Loaded Primal Scream or early Stone Roses with a fuzzbox.
Similar in spirit to this is The Pains of Being Pure At Heart's latest effort, Belong. One of the things I loved about the Pains' debut was that there were so many influences all worn heart-on-sleeve, but mixed so well. This manages something similar, though the influences have moved on a bit from 80s My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain and Wedding Present to 90s MBV and a more polished sound all round. Opener Belong kicks off sounding like The Sundays (and in particular Another Flavour, or the Newman and Baddiel In Pieces theme tune as it's probably better known), before a big Bob Mould/Sugar riff stomps in. …
18 feb 2011, 20:30 av the_peanutHüsker Dü means nothing to me. Bob Mould means nothing to me either. That is to say, the music that the Dü and the Mould made/make isn’t really the music that I like the Bob to make. The music I love is this:
Sugar – File Under Easy Listening (1994)
1994 was a great year in music, and File Under Easy Listening (or F.U.E.L.) was one of its highlights.
Roaring guitars. Loud guitars. But also, beautiful melodies. A combination I’ve gotten to love, and few albums have gotten it better than F.U.E.L. Bob Mould’s voice has never been angelic or smooth or anything like that, but who knew how well it would fit melodic songs instead of just raging rockers. His gritty vocals over the infectious grooves and chords are exactly what keep this album interesting.
