Episode Summary

Bob Mould in conversation with Michael Azerrad
Bob Mould in conversation with Michael AzerradBob Mould is one of the most influential figures in modern music. He formed the trio Hüsker Dü in 1979, and started playing some of the loudest, fastest music ever recorded. Over the span of a few short years, primary songwriter Mould transformed Hüsker Dü's music into something more complex, adding tuneful melody to their fast-paced sound. It is widely accepted that Hüsker Dü was the key influence on alternative rock, with bands from Nirvana to the Pixies citing their impact. Hüsker Dü was also the first American independent band to cross over to a major label, and their traumatic experience with Warner Brothers served as a warning for the indie bands that followed. Mould then formed the group Sugar, an alternative rock force in the mid-nineties. In the late nineties he started experimenting with electronica, and continues to make appearances as a DJ in the Washington D.C. area. A pioneer in the landscape of modern music, Bob Mould was one of the first openly gay American musicians and he continues to be an outspoken gay rights advocate.Michael Azerrad is a preeminent rock critic whose feature articles have appeared in Spin, Musician, Details, and Rolling Stone, where he is a contributing editor. - City Arts & Lecturesmoreless
