Bob Mould is an American singer-songwriter, producer, and DJ, currently living in San Francisco. An original member of the influential 1980s punk band Hüsker Dü, he released several albums after the band separated, including Workbook, Body of Song, and Life and Times, as well as Sugar's legendary album Copper Blue.
Mould recently signed to Merge Records and will release his first album for the label this fall. The new record, recorded with Mould's live band of drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and bassist Jason Narducy (Telekinesis, ex-Verbow), is his first collection of all new studio material since 2009's Life And Times.
Mould began a series of shows in which he'll commemorate the 20th anniversary of Copper Blue by playing the record in its entirety. The first of these shows took place at this year's Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco and will continue with a series of European dates this summer with more to be announced.
Edie Sedgwick formed in 1999 when El Guapo bassist Justin Moyer and ex-Panoply Academy Glee Club drummer Ryan Hicks wrote a number of songs about celebrities. After releasing one eponymous record on Mud Memory Records and recording another, Edie was forced to stop performing in 2001 when Justin was diagnosed with epilepsy and could no longer drive on tour. (Ryan had no driver's license.)
In 2004, Justin began performing in drag as Edie Sedgwick, the transgendered reincarnation of a vacuous Andy Warhol Superstar who died of a barbiturate overdose in 1971. Armed with a video projector, precious iMovies, and the occasional backing band, Edie traveled through many dark nights presenting auditory and visual art that honors the likes of Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey, Jr., Paris Hilton, Martin Sheen, and other celebrity co-conspirators. After two more records -- 2005's "Her Love is Real, But She is Not" on Desoto Records and 2008's "Things are Getting Sinister and Sinisterer" on Dischord -- and playing everywhere from Baltimore to Bulgaria, Edie got pretty sick of celebs and now just writes songs about whoever and whatever and reserves the right not to wear a dress in the future.
In April 2011, Edie and songwriting partner A.K. released "Songs for Isadora," ten songs for children on D.C.'s own Sockets Records. Her next full length, "Love Gets Lovelier Every Day," will be released by Dischord sometime in 2011.
