Hüsker Dü – New Day Rising

What a way to start the day. A band that has drunk too deeply from the well of umlauts, but with just three instruments could make a noise to wake the dead. The energy and anger and sulkiness of these boys stands for a lot of punky bands I love — the Jam, the Fall, and so on. Couldn’t decide on a Fall track, but this was an easy one to pick to start with. [John Peel once said about The Fall, “You might not always like what noise they are making, but they’re The Fall. They’re what we need.” A similar tribute might be paid to Hüsker Dü]
