SUGAR Released Impressive Debut ‘COPPER BLUE’ Twenty-Five Years Ago Today…

4 September2017

Artist: SUGAR – band formed by ex- Hüsker Dü guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould
Album: COPPER BLUE
Released: 4 September 1992 – 25 years ago…
All Music wrote: “How ironic that after years fronting the hugely influential but desperately overlooked ‘Hüsker Dü’, Bob Mould’s first album with new band ‘Sugar’ would become the most commercially successful project of his career.A more aggressive, contemporary guitar attack aside, stunning power punk masterpieces like ‘The Act We Act’, ‘The Slim’ and ‘Fortune Teller’ bear all of the vintage Mould musical traits: tell-tale lyrics, great hooks, and snappy melodies. It’s all underpinned by that unexplainable, chilling tension between innocent beauty and dark melancholy that fans came to expect from Mould, and topped by his somewhat nasal, almost timid vocal harmonies…”
My Impression: magnetizing powerhouse from start to finish…
Three Top Tracks: A Good Idea / The Act We Act / Changes…

* A GOOD IDEA (with lyrics) – giant noise bolide

* THE ACT WE ACT –  melodic rock dynamite

* CHANGES –  addictive hook paradise…
