Bob Mould - Distortion 1989 - 1019 - career spanning boxset

Bob Mould – 22 albums over a 20 year career spanning 1989 – 2019, with 150 tracks available to license from Demon Music/  You can listen to sampler of the tracks available here

The new release contains a collection of the entirety of Bob Moulds’ post-Hüsker Dü work — both solo and with Sugar — in a mammoth 24-disc CD box set called Distortion: 1989-2019 that will include 18 studio albums, four live albums and a new two-disc collection of rarities and collaborations.  “It’s called Distortion because it describes the music and it fits the world we live in,” Mould says in press materials announcing the new box sets. “In this new age, everybody shares their life in real time. But I’m not done yet. If I didn’t have a constantly active career, this anthology might feel like the proverbial dirt landing on top of my coffin — though somehow I seem to be able to crawl my way out of the dirt every time!”

The 24-disc CD box set includes 295 tracks remastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice, collecting all of Mould’s solo albums from 1989’s Workbook through 2019’s Sunshine Rock, everything Sugar released, out-of-print electronic albums LoudBomb and Blowoff, and four live albums.

The new two-disc Distortion Plus: 1989-2019 compilation of rarities includes Mould’s 2011 collaboration with Foo Fighters (“Dear Rosemary”), his 1991 collaboration with Golden Palominos (“Dying From the Inside Out”) and a previously unreleased demo of “Dog on Fire,” the Mould-penned theme to “The Daily Show.”

The albums each feature new artwork by illustrator Simon Marchner, and there’s a 72-page booklet with liner notes by UK music critic Keith Cameron and testimonials by Richard Thompson, Shirley Manson and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, plus lyrics and other  memorabilia.
