Well, I look at myself in the mirror, the numbers on my driving license, and wonder how many years of Beaster I have left in me. I’m a realist. I don’t think 10 years from now I’m necessarily going to be tearing up the stage quite like that. As time goes on the acoustic guitar is going to be a closer friend.

Bob Mould interviewed by Grant McDougall for The Quietus (2014)

Have you realized that we are 25 years, a quarter of a century, away from 1989? And so comes that we start the end of the ’80s with a 25th Year Anniversary reissue of  Bob Mould’s first solo album, Workbook. I still have to read the new reviews remembering this album that was an imporant step in his career, but I found this interview published a few months ago in The Quietus, which, although it didn’t call my attention at first, at the end I could find this quote that I thought it was very honest. Acoustic guitars is most of the times a synonym for matureness, not only of age, but sometimes just emotional matureness, as it maybe was Workbook

(via juanalikesmusic)

Before I got to the attribution, I assumed this quote was from 1998, when Mould was so serious about no longer touring with an electric band that he called his new album The Last Dog and Pony Show.

"I don’t want to be up there at 50 trying to rock out, with a bad back or something, and have people say, ‘I remember seeing him when he was really great playing like that.’"

Haha, yeah right, Bob (who’s now 53).

That said, and while I think it’s a mistake to equate acoustic instruments with maturity (he was only around 30 when he recorded Workbook, after all, and he had a lot of noise to come with Black Sheets of Rain, Sugar, etc.), I’d love to hear him return to that Workbook sound sometime.

So you’re saying I probably should’ve gone to this along with everybody else in Minneapolis :(

The Memphis Accord of 1754 brought together the warring city-states of Otis and Redding, ending a long period of strife. (Many years later, American recording artist Otis Morgenthaler would look to the union for inspiration when choosing a stage name.)
