Friday’s From the Vault

Bob Mould is a genius. Rock music does not contain many homosexual speedfreaks who re-defined hardcore before writing scripts for wrestling, but in this case, surely one is enough.

He’s also responsible for some of the greatest albums ever, including Sugar’s 1992 meisterwork Copper Blue. Here are the band performing at xfm’s 1993 Big Day Out show. This gig footage was from ITV’s late-night fondly remembered indie shitfest ‘The Beat’, hosted by Gary Crowley which, among the late night skullcrushing horror of foriegn soaps and travel show repeats, introduced a new generation to the delights of Molly Halfhead. The mere mention of it will set waves of opiate-like nostalgia washing over indie fans of a certain age and disposition.
