  6. Bob Mould: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    Published on Aug 11, 2014

    Bob Mould came alone, except for his 1987 Lake Placid Blue Fender Stratocaster. We provided the Epiphone Blues Custom 30 amp, which he promptly cranked. Needless to say, he announced his own Tiny Desk Concert without using the paging system.Mould isn’t a shy man — his power chords will tell you that — but he’s humble and gentle. Many know Mould from his days with Hüsker Dü, an awesome punkish band from Minnesota that laid the groundwork for the Pixies and more. His subsequent work with Sugar managed to do something none of his other records did so well: Copper Blue sold hundreds of thousands of copies.Beauty and Ruin is solo album No. 11 for Mould, and as you can hear from these songs, he’s all amped up and ready to go. Sweaty and happy, he makes “Makes No Sense At All” his final calling card — classic Hüsker Dü. —BOB BOILEN

    Set List:
    "The War"

  7. The Magic Clap
    its like a hotwire, baby,
    when we put it together
    when the sparks fly
    we’ll ignite the future forever
    this is the last kiss martin ever gave to coretta
    its like a paparazzi picture when i flash my beretta
    i got scars on my back
    the truth on my tongue
    i had the money in my hand when that alarm got rung
    we wanna breathe fire and freedom from our lungs
    tell homeland security
    we are the bomb

    hurry up, get in, close the do’
    this here the meeting for the overthrow
    waitin on that concrete rose to grow
    doin lines that aint quotable
    countin up all that dough you owe
    you aint sposed to know its opposable
    we are not disposable
    muscle up kid
    we got blows to throw
    til the folks have risen
    there’ll be no decision
    we make the motor move
    they chauffer driven
    right now we can’t shine right like a broken prism
    i figured out the 14th is a broke amendment
    good evening
    tonight we bring to you
    worn out streets that’ll sing to you
    .45 shells that’ll dance to the beats
    stomachs so loud it’ll cancel the speech
    checks that vanish if you blink an eye
    grace gettin locked in the clink to die
    a salary cap on a birth certificate
    notarized lies that burst in triplicate
    morning prayers for the car to start
    a man and a whiskey in a heart-to-heart
    hope in a track suit to flash and run
    while agony chases with a badge and gun
    poetry shouted from the squeal of the bus breaks
    hands in the air try to feel for an escape
    flash in my eyes like candid snaps
    when we slap back it’s the magic clap

    Musician Peter Gutteridge, a founding member in the late 1970s and early 1980s of Dunedin bands The Chills and The Clean, died on 15th September 2014.

    Aged in his early 50s, Gutteridge is considered one of the pioneers of the Dunedin sound - a style of indie pop using jangly guitar-playing, minimal bass lines and loose drumming.

    Gutteridge was also the brains behind Dunedin band Snapper, which released its debut EP on Flying Nun Records in 1988, offering a swirling fuzz of guitar sounds wrapped in melodic keyboards with pulsating drums.


  15. First EP from Peter Gutterdige (The Clean, Chills and Great Unwashed) lead Dunedin band ‘Snapper’. Originally released in 1988, now being re-issued as an exact facsimile for Record Store Day 2013 by Flying Nun Records and Captured Tracks. With tracks like ‘Buddy’ and ‘Death and Weirdness in the Surfing Zone’, this EP captures one of Snapper’s earliest forms in all their space-freak-out glory.
