Biography

Mac McCaughan of Superchunk & Merge wrote of the Copper Blue / Beaster & FU: EL (Deluxe Edition) reissues:

When word went around that Bob Mould had a new band, not only a "band" band (as opposed to hired band to play his solo albums on tour) but also a trio, of course anyone raised from teenhood on punk rock and Hüsker Dü in particular (like myself) went into ... Read more in Amazon's Sugar Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A serious Sugar fan must have this 10 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you relly wanted to find out what made Sugar tick then his has it all. The blistering live versions of 'JC Auto' and 'Explode and Make Up' are full of pure energy and emotion, you can literally see the tension of Moulds face as he blares out his lines and pummels his guitar. However, this is not merely just a measure of Moulds' established songwriting, but of how good a band really are. This is displayed throughout the live verions by such tight drums and bass and, amazingly, Dave Barbes underappreciated songwriting skills. His song scream along with swarms of exilherating hooks swamping his straining voice, technically their sound is poor, but the whole experience of that raw emotion eviscerating your speakers is awesome. How gems like 'Anyone' or the stomping alt-rocker 'And You Tell Me' never made it onto an album and are now lost in the depths of the music world is unforgivable. The highlight has to be the intense live take of 'The Slim' which will leave you shaking afterwards. The only flaw on this compilation of live takes and B-sides is that they've presented it to you warts and all, there are a few real fillers here which could have been left off, but at least they gave it to you honestly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet As 6 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
For Sugar fans this is a must, the early b-sides are spectacular, David Barbe gets to sing a few as well. This collection illustrates the progress of Sugar as a band, from the early promise of singles from "Copper Blue", to the monolithic and disturbing "Beaster" to the lighter, throwaway pop of "F.U.E.L". Some excellent tunes abound, highluy recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed but brilliant! 18 Nov 2001
By P. Hoegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Like most b-sides collections, Besides is not for those just diving into the vast, brilliant career of Bob Mould. To get a bit more specific, if I could own only one Sugar recording, it would be Copper Blue. Of course, most bands can only wish that thier best efforts come anywhere close to Sugar's "trash". The raw energy of "Needle Hits E" and the amazing live version of "JC Auto" alone make it worth owning. Also standing out is the live version "The Slim" and the remix of "Believe What You're Saying". The icing for me, though, is the live "Explode And Make Up", which recalls the miserable, agonizing masterpiece of lost love that was Husker Du's "Candy Apple Grey" album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar as a full band 24 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Husker Du is gone, unfortunately,of course now so is Sugar, but I truly think this is Sugar's best album!Great Songs:Needle Hits E,Mind Is An Island,Where Diamonds are Halos,And You Tell Me (Cool bass line),Clownmaster,Frustrated(Like My Bloody Valentine, but with discernable vocals)And it's all topped off with a harrowing live version of The Slim that made my blood run cold!Bob IS noise. Beautiful noise, and the other guys perform and write and sing very well.After two more solo albums, what will Bob do next?God Only Knows===

5.0 out of 5 stars Besides, who needs singles? 27 Sep 2001
By "rousie-rouse" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you missed the singles, this is for you. There are some amazing tracks here that belong at the top of the Sugar cannon but it is the live renditions of "Explode and Make Up" and "The Slim" that realy blows you away. Bob rips the honest heart of these classic tracks and sticks it in your face. Superb! But hey! Bob Mould is Bob Mould.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 10 April 2004
By Erica Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Back in the '80s, Minneapolis was home to some of the best post-punk bands known to mankind like The Replacements, Soul Asylum (before Dave Pirner sold his soul to the devil with "Runaway Train"), Babes in Toyland (Courtney Love has nothing on Kat Bjelland), and Husker Du. After Husker Du broke up, Bob Mould moved on to Sugar. I wasn't a big fan of the band but they did have some solid songs, especially on their debut album "Copper Blue". One of my favorite songs is "If I Can't Change Your Mind", especially the acoustic mix. It received a lot of airplay here in the land of 10,000 lakes.
The other day I was at my local library and came across Sugar's b-side compilation "Besides". I had to check it out because of the solo mix of "If I Can't Change Your Mind" which was Bob Mould on acoustic guitar. I rarely hear the song on my local radio stations nowadays (thank you very much Clear Channel for ruining music diversity on the radio). I found "Besides" enjoyable for the most part but towards the end of the cd, the music began to get on my nerves. Now I know why some of these songs weren't previously released, they were not very good to begin with. I really did enjoy songs such as "Needle Hits E", and "Try Again". The first half of the cd was actually solid. I think Bob Mould should have made this full length album and EP (extended play) and ended the cd somewhere between "Anyone" and "Mind is An Island". For all its flaws, "Besides" is tolerable enough to give it 3.5 stars and it sounds a lot better than a lot of new music today.
