Gone But Not Forgotten! SUGAR (Bob Mould Band) 1992-1995

Great alternative bands from the past

18 February 2022

Band: SUGAR
Who: Riff-loaded noise trio led by Bob Mould
Active: 1992-1995
Albums: Copper Blue (1992) and File Under: Easy Listening (1994)

After frontman Bob Mould left legendary group Hüsker Dü in 1988 he went
on a solo trip and canned two LPs. After his label dropped him, he recorded a
demo tape with over thirty songs for his new project Sugar with David Barbe
and Malcolm Travis.

The band was named by Mould after he spotted … a sugar packet on the table
in a restaurant. Their journey lasted only for 3 years. I saw them live once, when
they played in my home country (Belgium) in the 90s. It was a deafening assault
on my ears that kept ringing for several days

Three great Sugar moments…
