The un-disputed godfather of underground rock delivers his landmark record as it should be heard - live!

After exiting Hüsker Dü, the granddaddy of alternative rock - Bob Mould - formed Sugar and released one of the most important underground rock albums of the early ‘90s.

The powerful and ever-fresh debut album Copper Blue, written and co-produced by Bob Mould, was a pivotal moment for alternative rock laying the foundations for the surge of alternative rock and power punk of the 1990s as well influencing some of today’s rock icons.

“The glorious second act of Bob Mould’s career” MOJO

The album draws on the punk of Hüsker Dü and tempers it with prominent melodies and mature writing. Copper Blue uses the classic three-piece set-up together with a smattering of synthesizer, a touch of harpsichord and a fistful of bite. It remains a landmark moment for the power punk and alternative rock genres, celebrated for its thick and aggressive guitars, infectious melodies and expressive lyrics.

“the fierce masterpiece” Under The Radar

The album was a blistering success far eclipsing the sales for his previous outfit and was voted Album Of The Year (1992) by NME. As well as spawning four singles - Changes, Helpless, A Good Idea and If I Can’t Change Your Mind - it also contained the stone cold Mould classic Hoover Dam. Even now Mould still seems pleasantly surprised by its success. “I got lucky,” he says. “It’s one of those records that sounds like it’s 20 years old; it sounds like it’s 50 years old; it sounds like it was made last week.”

“combined Hüsker Dü's passionate intensity with a new, steely pop resolve” Uncut

After twenty years, an album reissue, a solo turn, an autobiography and a tribute concert where the likes of Dave Grohl and Ryan Adams paid homage to him, Mould is still kicking ass and taking names and brings Copper Blue back to be experienced as it should be - live and on stage. This classic album will be played in its entirety, along with a healthy dose of Hüsker Dü and solo tunes including tracks from Mould’s new album, Silver Age.

question is extremely simple. One of the main reasons why the original watches are expensive is due to the cost

He was an immense admirer of the late Thomas Carlyle, coach online outlet, and was very suspicious of the encroachments of modern democracy. I know not exactly how these queer heresies had planted themselves, but he had a longish pedigree (it had flowered at one time with English royalists and cavaliers), coachoutletsstoreonlinee-hot, and he seemed at moments to be inhabited by some transmitted spirit of a robust but narrow ancestor, some broad-faced wig-wearer or sword-bearer, with a more primitive conception of manhood than our modern temperament appears to require, and a programme of human felicity much less varied. He liked his pedigree, he revered his forefathers, coach outlet, and he rather pitied those who might come after him. In saying so, however, I betray him a little, for he never mentioned such feelings as these. Though he thought the age too talkative, as I have hinted, he liked to talk as well as any one; but he could hold his tongue, if that were more expressive, michael kors outlet online, and he usually did so when his perplexities were greatest. He had been sitting for several evenings in a beer-cellar, smoking his pipe with a profundity of reticence. This attitude was so unbroken that it marked a crisis ¡ª the complete, the acute consciousness of his personal situation., It was the cheapest way he knew of spending an evening. At this particular establishment the Schoppen were very tall and the beer was very good; and as the host and most of the guests were German, pinglunlilinzu1126, and their colloquial tongue was unknown to him, he was not drawn into any undue expenditure of speech. He watched his smoke and he thought, coach outlet online, thought so hard that at last he appeared to himself to have exhausted the thinkable. When this moment of combined relief and dismay arrived (on the last of the evenings that we are concerned with), he took his way down Third Avenue and reached his humble dwelling.
