Bob Mould’s Sugar Catalog Goes > Merge

 

Reissues to be
followed in the fall by a new Mould album. View promo trailer, below.

 

By Fred Mills

 

Fresh off his recent appearance at the Merge Records-hosted
Concert To Defeat Amendment One, Bob Mould is now set to start reissuing his
classic Sugar albums – 1992’s Copper Blue, 1993’s Beaster EP,
and 1994’s File Under: Easy Listening – via Merge as expanded remasters. This fall he’ll also be doing a new
solo record for the NC label, but meanwhile, longtime Mould fans can start
drooling over the tracklistings of the reissues, listed below.

 

 

 

The first two
records will arrive as a triple-CD set that incorporates bonus tracks and a
1992 concert originally released as a promotional-only LP, while File Under will be a double album loaded with B-sides and another live show, from 1994. Watch
for ‘em in the bins on July 24.
