"Bob Mould, Hüsker Dü: Maxwell’s is sort of my CBGB. For R.E.M., the Feelies, the Replacements, Hüsker Dü, all the bands of that era—that was our room. Bear in mind, I never played CBGB. In early ’85, I called up and tried to get a gig there. They were like, 'Never heard of you.' Really? You didn’t hear Zen Arcade or New Day Rising? Maybe you should go read The Village Voice or something."
Upon the closing of Maxwell's, New York magazine presents an oral history of the Hoboken nightclub.
