Product Description

CD Description

Walking away from the massive success of his band Sugar, Bob Mould reinvented his approach to music-making again in 1996 with his self-titled third solo album, often referred to as 'Hubcap' due to it's simple but striking sleeve imagery. Writing and playing everything himself, the recording frames emotive and hook-laden songs with a playful arrangement of drum machines, overdriven guitars and bubbling keyboards. A noise-pop gem that has long been regarded by fans as a firm favourite in an impressive canon of work, it is long overdue wider critical re-appraisal. It is combined here with the follow-up album from two years later, the last release of Bob's short but productive partnership with the seminal Creation Record Label. A valedictory farewell to the guitar-based rock that he would subsequently take a long sabbatical from (and later return to further down the line), The Last Dog And Pony Show once again highlights his expert songcraft and highly original sonic vision. This expanded edition of both albums has been lovingly remastered from the original tapes, and includes b-sides, a bonus disc containing a full length live concert from 1998, and an extensive booklet with rare photos, memorabilia, and exclusive new interviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars End of an era 25 Jun 2012
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So after the Sugar reissues we get the following two Bob Mould CD's plus a live CD with some extras. This box set also contains an interview and expansive booklet. This was the end of Bob Mould's guitar solo projects (until recently) and was filled with a dark overtone.

Bob Mould (aka Hubcap) came out after Sugar split. Its one of Bobs finest albums. Several tracks could have come from the Sugar albums (Deep Karma Canyon, Fort Knox, King Solomon and Next Time That You Leave being prime examples). The tracks are really strong and contain some great guitar pop numbers. Bob even has a blast with I Hate Alternative Rock (perhaps foreshadowing his fall out with the genre in the next album and the subsequent years)/ There are plenty of darker moments too. But this album is a five star album. There are some good B sides included here and two live versions.

Following this is The Last Dog and Pony Show. This is a somewhat confusing album. It should work well. It contains a number of very good tracks in First Drag of The Day, Moving Trucks and others which work well. They continue the trend but its a dark offering. Bob was clearly not happy with his lot at this point - see the booklet. The accompanying extra of the interview is testament to this. However, this is a patchy offering. Many fans of Bob in this genre will probably dislike the dance track Megamanic. Its not a bad track but feels somehow out of place here. Bob was clearly looking at different types of music and testing the waters here. Its probably a 3.5 star album to be honest with it not quite working as well as previous efforts. This is compounded here by being included in a box set with one of his strongest offerings. It appears somewhat diminished in comparison.
