“As leader of the post-hardcore trio Hüsker Dü throughout the ’80s and of the aggressive pop band Sugar in the ’90s, Bob Mould has been one of the principle drivers behind the direction and ideals of the American Underground. 2012 began with Mould readying the extensive reissues of Sugar’s catalog, as well as releasing a solo album, The Silver Age.

Consequence of Sound recently caught up with Mould to discuss The Silver Age and what it means for him to be playing three-minute songs again. We also visited the demise of Hüsker Dü, the formation of Sugar, and what led Mould to begin exploring the electronic realm.”
