Waking up with a great Hüsker Dü song in my head was pretty swell. But, finding this slamming live version with a very enthusiastic Dave Grohl on second guitar (and ably taking Grant Hart’s vocals) is pure chocolate frosting.
It’s hard enough to believe I bought this album twenty-five years ago, but it’s almost as amazing to hear a grey and happy 49-year-old Bob Mould sounding this great. Arguably singing more strongly than when he did at a doughy and very unhappy 26.
Good for Bob. Love that fella.
We sit and pray together
That they might change the weather.
My love for you will never die.
If I sound distant that’s because
You shouldn’t see me cry in ice cold ice.
Shouldn’t see me cry in ice cold ice.
