Grunge rock icon Bob Mould is set for a comeback as the leader of a new GNARLS-BARKLEY-type dance-pop duo. The former HUSKER DU and SUGAR frontman has partnered with DEEP DISH DJ RICHARD MOREL to form new act BLOWOFF. Electronica star Morel accepts many people will be bemused by the collaboration, but he insists it works really well. He says, "Turns out we're both huge pop heads." The odd couple met while they were trying to establish a weekly club night in Washington DC, where both are popular DJs. Blowoff plan to tour later this year (06).
