You're Left Alone With Something. And I Hope For You It's One Thing. That You And Yours Can Hold And Hold As Something Special.
I never thought I'd ever utter these words, but goddamn Nirvana. Goddamn Kurt Cobain and his lousy timing. Had he not been so brilliant, so urgent, and so neccessary, more people might have heard of Sugar. Indie god Bob Mould; having shuttered the windows on Husker Du, quietly put together one of the finest pop rock groups of the last 20 years. Through two albums and three years of touring, Mould & Co. managed to build off the already rabid HD fanbase by comitting to wax pure pop joy, replete with massive distortion and saccharine sweet hooks. On their debut album Copper Blue, Sugar display power pop charm doled out in 3 minute blasts; never letting up until your cd player begs unplugging. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Sugar: The Slim
Sugar: If I Can't Change Your Mind
Sugar: Hoover Dam
