Sugar's debut in 1992, Copper Blue

Sugar was an American alternative rock band of the early 1990s led by vocalist/guitarist Bob Mould (former Hüsker Dü) alongside bassist David Barbe ( ex-Mercyland) drummer Malcolm Travis (ex-Zulus/ ex-Human Sexual Response).

Copper Blue was the debut album of the US alternative rock band Sugar. It was voted 1992 Album of the Year by the NME. All of the songs were written by guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, who also co-produced with Lou Giordano. The song “The Slim” is about losing someone to AIDS. Musically, the band continues the thick punk guitar of Mould’s other band, Hüsker Dü, while slowing the tempo and emphasizing melody even more.

    I love this album. It’s the perfect balance of pop and noise. To this day it’s still one of my Desert Island Discs.
