Well, well, well. . . we knew it was only a matter of time. Download Bored of Edukation on Amazon now! It’s a single 4:46 song for 99 cents. I’ll pass on the Tunecore link for those not in the US as soon as I can.
Dudes, did you know Bob Mould was writing his autobiography? How come nobody tells me this stuff!
This is an awful lot of news for a damn Friday. What the hell people?
When his puns are off….man- they get smelly.
Bored of education?
Your better than that. Go write some handful- of -friends -one -needs -a -match -and -one -needs -some -ice level stuff.
Bored of education…pfft.
Good song though…
My jury is still out on the song. I do like the whole Icarus/Daedalus thing, but that myth just appeals to me on a really personal level. However, musically, it might be a bit, I dunno, boring?
Ya. But ya know what rules? That Studio demo of kiss me on the bus coming out next week!!!!!!!!!! Holy fuckballs it rawks!
Fuckballs? I don’t think I’ve ever seen such creative cursing.
Oh, I have much more colorful examples…i use them sparingly, so as not water down their impact. So when I say Fuckballs!, you know I mean Fuckballs!
I gotta say the fuckballs got me to listen to the demo. I’ve been in resissue denial because I’m having a hard time justifying the $50 or whatever when I haven’t had a job since March. Boo!
However, Kiss me on the Bus is pretty damn good.
Bob needs to move back here, or back to Texas. “District Line” was good, but too peppy. Nothing brings a body down like the perpetual construction in the Twin Cities. Except for being in Texas…
I agree Jonathon. All I know is that if Bobby boy isn’t dishing some dirt on the whole Grant thing I am going to be crying BULLSHIT at the top of my lungs.
50% of me likes it, cause it’s Paul. The other 50%, as a teacher, thinks it just contributes to the bashing of today’s education. Paul was bored. Is Johnny? Was everyone? Is there a better way?
Paul’s hate of education did him well. He wakes up, gets his coffee, and goes down to the basement to record songs. Damn, wish I could do that with a masters in Ed.
Is there a better way to educate kids?
The song is alright, but there are better songs that appear as only snippets on 49:00 and 3oclockreep. Would have preferred this as a part of one of those songs, and had a full version of Devil Raised a Good Boy or Goodnight Sweet Prince.
I give it 3 out of 5 crackers.
And Bob Mould’s new album is set to be released in February of 2009, which means we should be seeing it around Labor Day of 2011. He also plans a full band tour to follow. Hope it’s more like Body of Song and less like District Line.
“Bored of Edukation” is awright, but I rank it more as a field goal than a no shit touchdown…
I think today’s education needs a little bashing, O btw.
He needs to play a damn show so all of us pw.net nerds can come together and go and get smashed and yell paul all night.
I look forward to Grant Hart’s retaliatory bio. Then Bob’s bio to answer that bio. Then Grant’s. Then Bob. Greg will continue staying out of it and being a kickass chef. We should all be kickass chefs.
That’s pretty good, Phil!
I get the feeling that Grant would welcome a Husker Du reunion. His solo career hasn’t taken off like Bob’s, and it was he that initiated playing a couple of songs with Bob at the Rock For Karl benefit. Also, when I saw Bob and his band play First Avenue in ’05, Grant was reportedly in the audience.
I do like Hart’s solo projects. I wish he would release something new.
Awesome tune, and I’m not even into that type of music. I really love it!
