Big Sugar records new album a decade after its last one
Article by Eden Munro
Big Sugar released its last full-length record a decade ago, with bandleader Gordie Johnson folding the group and moving south to Texas to escape the pleasure-destroying pressures that the music industry brought to bear on him and his musical compatriots at the time. After three albums of metal-heavy Texas blues with Grady, in 2010 Johnson put his old band back together for some festival dates before releasing the full-on reggae rock of Revolution Per Minute this past summer. Johnson recently spoke with Vue Weekly about the creation of the new album.
