Former Husker Du and Sugar frontman Bob Mould joined Boing Boing co-editor David Pescovitz for an interview and a solo electric performance featuring songs spanning his legendary career. The video, directed by San Francisco filmmaker Scott Compton, delves far back into the musician’s career as he celebrates the release of his 11th solo record, Beauty & Ruin.
