Bob Mould – 08/10/16 19:00 – 22:30

Location: SWX Bristol, 15 Nelson Street, Bristol, BS1 2JY, United Kingdom

“Its a song cycle. A narrative. Its nobodys story but my own. I ran so fast from my past that I caught up with myself. This album is acknowledging that and dealing with every year getting a little tougher.“

Bob Moulds new album Beauty and Ruin may very well be the most epic emotional roller coaster ever pressed into 36 minutes.

Well into his fourth decade as a singer songwriter, Mould is as relevant, ferocious, and poignant as he has ever been on the compact epic that is Beauty and Ruin. Instead of sitting idle and going quiet, Bob chooses to confront head on and plow through the psychic turbulence that comes with this stage of life. Much of Beauty and Ruin deals with the passing of Moulds father in October 2012, Bobs struggle to come to terms with it, himself, and his own identity and legacy, and repercussions of all of the above on his ongoing relationships in the land of the living. Beauty and Ruin is a twelve track journey of loss, reflection, conciliation, and coming through the other side. Beauty and Ruin is a challenging work of raw beauty and may well be Bob Mould’s finest work since his 1989 solo debut, Workbook.

Doors: 7pm – Over 18s only
