Bob Mould brought out a classic from his Sugar days during his appearance last night (Feb. 28) on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,' running through 'A Good Idea' off the band's 1992 album, 'Copper Blue.' With guitars blazing and amps cranked, Mould and his backing duo of bassist Jason Narducy and drummer Jon Wurster turned the mid-tempo indie-pop nugget into a sped-up, throttling slab of post-punk glory, ferocious in execution but still catchier than a cold. Check it out above.
Here's the 'Star Machine' video set-up: It's the first annual Bring Your Kids to Work Day for Bob Mould and his backing band, and Mould and bassist-singer Jason Narducy both show up with cute little rugrats in tow. But drummer Jon Wurster arrives with a jug of Bloody Mary mix, a bad perm and a tear in his eye. Jon says his wife Karen kicked him out the previous night, and that his little Josh won't be joining the festivities. Still, he insists kids day goes on as planned.
Former Hüsker Dü and Sugar guitarist Bob Mould is ready to drop another solo album later this year. 'Silver Age' will be released on Sept. 4 and Mould will hit the road in support of the record.
