Reviews Bob Mould Band Live At ATP 2008

Bob Mould Band

Live At ATP 2008

A new live record finds the artist covering all phases of his storied career with whiplash intensity. Husker Du, Sugar and his solo career material are all represented. Mould brings his usual passion and emotion to the proceedings. But the band’s performance here is just as crucial. Richard Morel’s keyboards add depth but don’t overtake the mix. Jason Narducy adds solid bass work and background vocals. Probably his best bassist since David Barbe shared the stage with him. The drums are handled by Jon Wurster (of Superchunk fame) who bashes away with precise chaos. A close to perfect live record, ATP 2008, strips Mould’s songs of their sometimes over-polished studio veneer and instead flips them upside down for us to hear in all their ragged glory.

8.5 / 10Sean K.
