Bob Mould at Joe's Pub in 2009 (more by Jacob Blickenstaff)
Bob Mould

Lists: '90s bands we hope never reunite... Below are [a few] bands we hope never get back together, because we like them too much to see them like that....

The Afghan Whigs: These days, former lead singer Greg Dulli co-owns a cop bar out in LA. This is as it should be.

Refused: Rumors of a 2010 reunion turn out to have been exaggerated, so we're going to take the band's infamous breakup manifesto at its word.

Pulp: Another band whose long-rumored reunion (at this year's Glastonbury) turns out to have been exaggerated, thank goodness...

Uncle Tupelo: Former frontmen Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy are busy in successful bands (Son Volt and Wilco) and by most all accounts dislike each other intensely, so we're not too worried about this one.

Sugar: Bob Mould is already on a roll, having never reunited his beloved Husker Du. All he has to do is keep not getting his bands back together, which shouldn't be that hard. -[Washington Post]

And the legendary Bob Mould will continue his non-reunion streak (playing as a member of No Age doesn't count) by playing two weeks worth of shows before the year is over. That includes an intimate solo gig at the Rock Shop on November 6th with Chris Brokaw (tickets), and the previously mentiond ones at City Winery with Lenny Kaye (11/4 - tickets) and Marshall Crenshaw (11/5 - tickets).

Some videos and all tour dates below...

Husker Du perform 'Could You Be the One?' and 'She's a Woman (And Now He is a Man)' live on the Late Show with Joan Rivers on April 27, 1987

Loved Du and Sugar but solo, monotonous.

Who cares? This guy plays too much, and really is terrible now. That's why he plays dumps.

his solo stuffs monotonous? I didnt think anyone cared enough to have an opinion.

^ Grant @ 4:24; solo albums are good, really good; solo live he's monotonous -

Posted by donn | October 14, 2010 4:29 PM

Sugar was better than Husker Du. I call it like I see it.

Dumbass.

ya'll trippin. i saw bob mould (with his backing band) a few years back and it was one of the best shows i'd seen all years. he broke out a bunch of husker and sugar songs and killed it. i don't know about him performing solo though.

I was such a huge fan of his in the 80's and 90's. The Sugar show at the Academy was definitely one of the loudest shows I've ever experienced. Solo stuff beyond Workbook just doesn't resonate with me the same way. Worse was when he said he got rid of Sugar basically so he wouldn't have to share his performance fee with other musicians. What a D-bag--even if it's true you should keep that to yourself. That being said, I think I'm ready to give him another shot before the end of the year.
Grant Hart's solo record are so amazing. He gives a good solo show too--check it out if you get a chance. Would love love love to see Grant perform his solo work with a backing band.

Pretty awesome set list from last year: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2009/11/bob_mould_playi_1.html

I'll take it!

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2010 7:31 AM

unfortunately, even the setlist couldn't save the shows last years - it was terrible

Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2010 9:33 AM

Whoever was quoted as saying they'd hate it too much to see their favorite bands like "that" ie reunited is a moron. Mission of Burma have never been better. The Dinosaur Jr reunion shows kicked ass and Polvo has been tearing it up as well. Fuck that guy.

Also, Mould at ATP NY last year doing nothing but Sugar and Husker Du with a band kicked ass.

'Black Sheets of Rain' is one of the greatest records ever made. That is all...

If you have never seen a solo acoustic Mould show, it is well worth your time, but for long time fans who have followed his work since either the end of Husker or even the end of Sugar (hell, even since the end of the Body of Song tour), his setlists have remained frustratingly the same in the solo shows. WIth such a rich songbook, it is hard to understand why he doesn't delve deeper.
