Hüsker Dü
Savage Young Dü, Numero Group, 2017
10.11.2017 jeweils plus BUCH!
Das Team von Numero Group tut Punkrockfans im November einen sehr großen Gefallen. Dann veröffentlicht das Label ein Box-Set mit alten Songs von Hüsker Dü. Auf »Savage Young Dü« finden sich alle Songs, die die Band zwischen 1979 und 1982 aufgenommen hat. Darauf finden sich knapp 70 Songs, 47 davon waren bislang unveröffentlicht. Außerdem erscheint dazu auch ein 144seitiges Booklet, das die Geschichte und Bedeutung der Band ausleuchtet.

Numero Group hat sich die Mühe gemacht, den besten Sound aus den schrammeligen alten Aufnahmen zu holen, die im Original auf SST Records erschienen sind. Damals hatte die Band kein Geld, sich um einen besseren Sound zu kümmern. Hüsker-Dü-Bassist Greg Norton: »Hearing this stuff for the first time in a couple of decades, I [was] realizing the historical significance of what we were doing at the time«, erklärt er, »Of course, at the time, we were a bunch of kids playing rock 'n' roll in the basement. But the potential that Hüsker had showed right out of the gate.«

Experience the punishing sonic origins of a punk icon. Collected here for the first time, and skillfully 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 tastemak er SST in 1983.

This primitive stage in the fabled car eer of Hüsk er 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. Spread across four LPs or three CDs, 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
