• hüsker dü Savage Young Dü (4 LP set (p & p will be charged at cost price), £63.95)

    label: The Numero Group

    Experience the punishing sonic origins of a punk icon. Collected here for the first time, and skilfully 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. 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. “We created this blistering wall of sound—bright white radio static with occasional melody.” —Bob Mould. “It was like rolling down a hill aware of the bumps, but focusing on blowing people’s minds and completely wearing out the audience.”—Grant Hart. “We didn’t know what hardcore was. We just got up there and played real fast and loud.”—Greg Norton. 1. Side A 1. Do You Remember? 2. Sore Eyes 3. Can’t See You Anymore 4. Picture Of You 5. The Truth Hurts 6. Do The Bee 7.
