Bob thmbTwenty odd songs delivered in a little over an hour, mixing up tracks from his illustrious back catalogue, that is what Bob Mould delivers when you are lucky enough to actually get a ticket to see him live these days. No fuss, no nonsense, ...just a sense of urgency and integrity that is normally associated with artists half the man’s age. Uber Rock’s Nev Brooks was lucky enough to bag a ticket for the Bristol date of Mould’s recent UK tour, and so with the PA seemingly cranked to 12 he was finally ready for some ‘Beauty & Ruin’.
