HUSKER DU

“Sav­age Young Dü” NUMERO

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

DE­CEM­BER 15 – Ex­pe­ri­ence the pun­ish­ing sonic ori­gins of a punk icon. Col­lected here for the first time, and skill­fully re­mas­tered from orig­i­nal board tapes, demos, and ses­sion masters, this col­lec­tion is an au­thor­i­ta­tive chron­i­cling of the well­spring and mat­u­ra­tion of Grant Hart, Greg Nor­ton and Bob Mould—three St. Paul teenagers who’d go on to be­come the most her­alded trio of the Amer­i­can punk un­der­ground. Fol­low the Hüskers to their ear­li­est gigs in 1979, through ex­ten­sive road dog tour­ing, and to the start of their part­ner­ship with West Coast tastemaker SST in 1983. This prim­i­tive stage in the fa­bled ca­reer of Hüsker Dü is pre­sented as a deluxe box set and pack­aged with a hard­bound book crammed full of never be­fore seen pho­tos, fly­ers, and a sprawl­ing es­say with par­tic­i­pa­tion from the band. Spread across four LPs or three CDs, 47 of the 69 songs com­piled here are pre­vi­ously unis­sued. Also in­cluded are Stat­ues/Amuse­ment, In A Free Land, Ev­ery­thing Falls Apart, and an al­ter­nate record­ing of the Land Speed Record set.
