Just look at that sleeve. Bob Mould is obviously in a better place than where he was around the time of his 1990 album Black Sheets of Rain. But there's a point to the all the happiness. Bob is content in Berlin and instead of a raging anti- US administration album as you might expect, he's celebrating the good things in life as a means to stay alive during these dark years.

Something nice for fans of legendary post-punk racketeers Husker Du. 'Savage Young Du' is a journey through the young life of the band including early recordings, sessions and live performances as well as their classic early single 'Statues'/'Amusement'. All housed in deluxe set with book of photos and memorabilia.

Now that Husker Du aren't reforming (good), Bob can get on with making his solo albums. This latest one is a result of him spending six months in solitude (a long time to not see a human) and promises to be his darkest record in some time. I'd be interested to see a return to the 'Workbook' sound but who knows with Bob. His latter day albums always have moments of great so this will be well worth keeping an eye on.
Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould’s second solo album Black Sheets Of Rain has all the crucial Mould tropes in place: a thick and heavy guitar sound and his slightly-pushed-back-in-the-mix drawling vocals. The album was recorded with two former members of Pere Ubu too! 25th anniversary remastered reissue on Demon.
Just over a year after Husker Du split, Bob Mould released his first solo album, Workbook in 1989. Mould wrote and sang everything on here. He played most of the instruments too, but shared drumming duties with Anton Fier (Golden Palaminos) and bass with Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu). Jane Scarpantoni (Tiny Lights) was drafted in to play cello too. The album is a cult classic and to celebrate its 25th anniversary, Omnivore Recordings are reissuing the album as Workbook 25. The CD will feature extra tracks and a second disc of Bob Mould’s live performance at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro in 1989. The double vinyl LP will feature a bonus track, All Those People Know.
