Hüsker Dü – Discography

Magnificent music from the magnificent and supremely influential Hüsker Dü!

Hüsker Dü is widely regarded as one of the key bands to emerge from the 1980s American indie scene. Music writer Michael Azerrad asserted in his book Our Band Could Be Your Life (2001) that Hüsker Dü was the key link between hardcore punk and the more melodic, diverse music of college rock that emerged. Azerrad wrote, “Hüsker Dü played a huge role in convincing the underground that melody and punk rock weren’t antithetical.”

The band also set an example by being the first band from the American indie scene to sign to a major record label, which helped establish college rock as “a viable commercial enterprise.”

Hüsker Dü’s sound has been influential on several bands on through the 1990s, including the Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, Superchunk, Soul Asylum, and Green Day.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has said, “The Replacements and Hüsker Dü are probably the bands that influenced me the most”, particularly in his approach to creating chord progressions.

Husker Düformed in Minneapolis, MN in 1979 where Bob Mould, Grant Hart and Greg Norton, met at a record store. They all shared a passion for hardcore punk rock and decided to form band and called themselves Husker Dü(after a 50s Swedish board game, translating to do you remember?).

Husker Dü’s early music concentrated upon rage and frustration, imitating the tone of prevalent hardcore bands such as Black Flag. They soon began to mix layered pop melodies and hooks with their hardcore punk roots. Local music fans immediately embraced their punk-pop hybrid sound, comprising memorable melodies, intelligent lyrics and simple pop structures.

By 1980 the band had cultivated a strong following. They released their debut album, Land Speed Record, in 1982 and begun touring the United States tirelessly. They were the first of the mid-80s independent post-punk bands to sign with a major label, Warner Bros in 1985.

They worked incessantly, producing 8 full-length albums in a 7-year period, all of which were warmly received by reviewers and fans alike.

In 1986 Hart was rumored to be struggling with alcohol and drug problems, but the band still managed to complete their final album, Warehouse: Songs and Stories, released in 1987.

They disbanded in early 1988. Hart recovered from his addiction and formed a new band, Nova Mob. Mould embarked upon a solo career and Norton gave up music altogether.

Bob Mould – Workbook (lossless)

Bob Mould – Workbook
1989 Virgin rec. | wma lossless | complete scan | 361 mb

“All those things I’ve done before,” Bob Mould sings, dismissing Hüsker Dü, the band he toiled with for most of the ’80s, “it doesn’t matter anymore.”

That’s partially true – Hüsker were always much more brutal than “See a Little Light,” the wistful, catchy pop song on Mould’s 1989 solo debut. But even Mould’s most introspective previous songs didn’t have quite the scab-opening quality of “Lonely Afternoon” and “Wishing Well.” Though Mould’s guitar and Anton Fier’s drums made Workbook seem heavy at the time, today it doesn’t have quite the punch of Hüsker Dü or his beefed-up trio recordings with Sugar.

Songs:
1. Sunspots
2. Wishing Well
3. Heartbreak A Stranger
4. See A Little Light
5. Poison Years
6. Sinners And Their Repentances
7. Brasilia Crossed With Trenton
8. Compositions For The Young And Old
9. Lonely Afternoon
10. Dreaming, I Am
11. Whichever Way The Wind Blows
