Glad we all agree.
the latest Bob Mould album is better than anything Husker Du did, so:
Sugar > Bob Mould > Husker Du
I've got the benefit of looking at all these related records completely objectively, since I was in nappies when Husker Du were kicking about.
They were a bit shit, although I suppose they allowed Bob Mould to cut his teeth as it were, before cracking on with writing some proper tunes.
'A bit shit'?
Is that not a proper enough tune for you?
Good to know.
Couldn't deal with Grant Hart's lisp.
Grant Hart's first solo album is better than any of that other stuff.
You'll be for the cosh if you're wrong.
'Now That You Know Me' was a pleasant enough listen, a nice little 60's tinged pop-psych romp, but you can't seriously believe that it trumps any of the tracks on Copper Blue. Because it doesn't.
...Husker Du were an amazing band seldom given the credit they deserve. This hardly helps.
I first heard sugar at uni, loved em and still do. I got to husker du later and while I admire them, I don't love em. So yeah sugar wins for me. And silver age is aces too.
Anyone who thinks that is completely deranged.
