Bob Mould / Distortion vinyl & CD boxes

24CD box set • 8LP coloured vinyl • Limited quantities with signed print

Demon Music will in October issue Distortion: 1989 – 1995 and Distortion: 1989-2019, respectively 8LP vinyl and 24CD box sets that chronicle of the solo career of Bob Mould and his band Sugar.

This massive anthology compiles for the first time the entirety of Mould’s recorded work from 1989 onwards, with two editions available.

  • The 24CD box offering 18 studio albums, plus four live albums and two albums of rarities and collaborations.
  • The 8LP vinyl edition offers five studio albums and two compilations of B-sides and rarities. This is the first in a series of four vinyl box sets which will span the same 30-year period as the CD package.

All audio for both sets is remastered by Jeff Lipton and Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering in Boston.

The vinyl set looks beautiful since and the music is pressed on 140g clear vinyl with splatter effects and all albums are presented with new cover artwork. The box set is below, but you can see all the new album designs in the track listing area, if you scroll down.

The vinyl box comes with a booklet of lyrics, memorabilia and new sleeve notes from Keith Cameron. Also 750 sets worldwide are available with a 12″ x 12″ screen print of the new Copper Blue artwork signed by Bob Mould and illustrator Simon Marchner.

It’s called Distortion because it describes the music and it fits the world we live in,” says Mould himself. 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!”

Distortion’s 24CD box set edition (which is ‘1989 – 2019’) features 295 tracks and includes every solo album from 1989’s Workbook to 2019’s Sunshine Rock, the entire Sugar catalogue, Mould’s long out-of-print electronica projects LoudBomb and Blowoff, and four live albums spanning the period 1989-2008. Also included is Distortion Plus: 1989-2019, a new and exclusive collection of rarities and collaborations, featuring such highlights as ‘Dear Rosemary’, Mould’s 2011 collaboration with Foo Fighters, his fabled Golden Palominos contribution ‘Dying From The Inside Out’, plus a previously unreleased demo version of ‘Dog On Fire’, his theme tune for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.

The CD box includes a 72-page booklet and is also available as a standard and SIGNED edition, the latter limited to 750 units worldwide.

These box sets have been assembled with Bob Mould’s full involvement and he had the following to say about them

It’s called Distortion because it describes the music and it fits the world we live in,” says Mould himself. 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!”

Both Distortion box sets are issued on 30 October 2020 (was 23 October).  The signed CD boxes are available via Amazon (UK, USA and Germany), while the signed vinyl box sets are available via the indie retail community (worldwide). The SDE shop has now sold out of signed vinyl sets.

In Germany JPC.de have SIGNED vinyl box sets in stock.
