This New Orleans-based brass band had this to say about their cover of the iconic Joy Division song: "It has a deep emotional meaning. Although we do listen to a lot of funk, jazz and rap, we listen to British music all the time here in New Orleans and love England’s punk scene.” Watch their video for it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBuTK-E0gxo

A Good Idea
by Sugar
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

Bob Mould to The Quietus on the formation (and naming) of Sugar: "We all got together in late January or early February of 1992 and spent three weeks rehearsing in the Athens, GA, for these nebulous recording sessions. It wasn’t a band at that point but what made it a band was before we were ready to leave Athens and head to Massachusetts to record these songs, Barrie Greene who was a booker at the 40 Watt club in Athens asked us to fill a last minute vacancy and play and show and we were like, “Oh sure. Why not?” And that was the moment we were like, “Ooops! What are we going to call this?” So the three of us and my then-partner - who was on the management side of things - were eating at a Waffle House and there was pack of sugar on the table and that’s how it all happened!"
