Bob Mould / Herrenmagazin

02.06.08 Batschkapp, Frankfurt

What can you expect from a show where songs are played like I Hate Alternative Rock or I Am Vision I Am Sound? Nothing more than a thunderstorm.
It's hot in Frankfurt and it's Monday evening so people seem to have better things to do than listening to an old punk legend like Bob Mould who kicks off his German tour in support of his new album District Line tonight. But first you have to endure 30 minutes of boring indie pop from a band called Herrenmagazin.
There's already enough bands like them like Madsen, Revolverheld, Virginia Jetzt!, Fotos, Kleinstadtelden, etc. so they don't really sound terrible but so replaceable that I can't really remember one of their songs.
Numerous unforgettable songs is what Bob Mould has produced now for nearly thirty years, starting with Hüsker Dü, then Sugar and over the past decade on his own. And tonight he gave the audience a fine selection of his hits starting with two of the finest Sugar tracks The Act We Act and A Good Idea. His guitar still has the power to smash your ears as the volume was absolutely mind blowing. The new album was only featured with two songs, the rest were Sugar classics and tunes spanning his solo albums. And at the end he gave way to Hüsker Dü songs making the old guys in the hall smile all over.
After 80 minutes the thunderstorm at the Batschkapp was over and as we left the venue, the real thunderstorm outside began.
