It set the stage for what later became known as "grunge rock." Mould is also a songwriter and singer. His career has progressed through several distinct stages. He co-founded Husker Du when he was 17. His guitar playing, singing and song writing are now showcased with his band "Sugar." The band has a new CD scheduled for release next month by Rykodisc.
