Sugar - Copper Blue

Husker Dü were an influential Eighties band that fed into the Nirvana-driven grunge explosion at the close of the decade, ironically just as Husker Dü folded. Bob Mould, chief pioneer in that band, formed Sugar some five years later, when Seattle had launched the genre into the Nineties. ‘Copper Blue’ was the band’s first album and remains iconic in that it promoted something subtler than the Seattle sound, with accessible melodies. High critical acclaim followed, although commercial success still remained dampened. Remastered and supplemented it has received a contemporary injection and doesn’t feel out of place in today’s scene with that Mould influence shining through.
