Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits

Bob Mould / Delta Spirit

Austin City Limits "Bob Mould / Delta Spirit"
Airs Saturday, January 26 at 11:00 PM

It's amazing to think that the loosely defined umbrella "alternative rock" now stretches past the quarter century mark. In celebration of its endurance, this week Austin City Limits presents a veteran of the style and a fast-rising newcomer. Bob Mould pioneered the loud/fast guitar pop style with both his 80s punk band Husker Du and his 90s power pop trio Sugar, while Delta Spirit carves its own path by blending Americana and indie rock. This episode will get your heart pumping and your air guitar flailing.

Joined by longtime bass foil Jason Narducy and Superchunk/Mountain Goats drummer Jon Wurster, Bob Mould wastes no time getting to the point, opening with the bludgeoning power chords of Sugar's "The Act We Act." It's the start of a blazing career retrospective that ranges from the romping Sugary power pop of "Changes" and "If I Can't Change Your Mind" to the raging power rock of "Star Machine," the lead-off track from Mould's highly acclaimed LP Silver Age. Hüsker Dü classics bring down the house, including the nuclear powered folk rock of "Celebrated Summer" and the irresistible hooks of "Makes No Sense at All." While it's hard to pick a highlight in a show packed with so many goodies, the epic, elegiac version of the rarely-performed Hüsker gem "Hardly Getting Over It" elevates the episode from simply excellent to truly magnificent.
