HUSKER DU- 'Ultracore' LP
HUSKER DU- 'Ultracore' LP. Hüsker Dü was a US punk rock band formed in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1979. The band's continual members were guitarist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton, and drummer Grant Hart. Hüsker Dü never achieved mainstream success, but attained an influence far larger than its modest sales figures would indicate when the band was around. Following a series of successful albums, including Zen Arcade (1984) and New Day Rising (1985), the band signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1986, becoming one of the first American underground rock bands to sign with a major record label.
Hüsker Dü first gained notice as a hardcore punk band with thrashing tempos and screamed vocals and this LP captures the band in the heart of that prime. This LP was recorded live at the Backstage on December 28th 1982 in Tucson, AZ. The back of the LP jacket also includes some cool flyers from shows that they played sharing the stage with the likes of the D*icks, The Vandals, Youth Brigade, Conflict, Minutemen and the Stains. A must for the Husker Du fan.
