Flip Your Wig
Released just eight months after New Day Rising, Flip Your Wig saw Dü’s sometimes wildly contradictory palette settle down into mature alternative rock – but without losing its bite and attitude.
Memorable single Makes No Sense At All won Dü a new audience. The majestic Divide And Conquer features sociopolitical ‘global village’ lyrics, spookily prophesying 21stcentury paranoia and divisive news feeds. The dark and earnest Games, with its ringing guitar motif, explores Mould’s familiar introspection. The imminent major-label deal would be a mere formality.
