Flip Your Wig

OMG! OMG! Hüskers re-unite for a benefit in Minneapolis.

The set everyone was most happy to see, of course, was the Mould and Grant performance, which had not been announced. They did two songs together from their old band's catalog: "Hardly Getting Over It" and "Never Talking to You Again," both seething numbers that fit the tone of their tumultuous relationship over the years.

Hart and Mould have talked since the Hüsker Dü breakup, but they have never played together and clearly still aren't best buds.

"If me and Bob can get together, that means we can all get together and put [President] Bush out of office, right?" Hart quipped as he took the stage.

After their quick reunion, Hart said in an interview, "We've been offered whatever you can imagine to do [a reunion], but we did this for free."

Read Bob Mould's low key reaction over at his blog modulate.

It's been a real bad news day, what with Uncle John's demise and Millwall's defeat, but, after not looking on your blog for some time, I came across some good news. This has really cheered me up. Let's hope we see them over this side of the Atlantic!

Unfortunately it looks like a one off reunion. Maybe for the best, I had mixed feelings about the pixies reunion.

Wash your mouth out with soap and water, young man. Pixies at Brixton Academy was one of the gigs of the year. Richmond Fontaine are the only other challengers. Oh, wait, Brian Wilson's Smile concert was a topper too, as was the Trashcan Sinatras and how about......in fact, what a year for live gigs!

yeah I went to the Pixies 5th June gig at Brixton. Good gig, ended up in a rockabilly club in kings cross at 2 in the morning. Strange.
