So I don't have to tell you a whole lot here. "FLIP YOUR WIG" is Hüsker Dü's
fifth album. The lp was preceded by the single "MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL"/"LOVE
IS ALL AROUND".
THE LINEUP: BOB MOULD- GUITAR, VOCALS
GREG NORTON- BASS

This album was produced by Bob Mould and Grant Hart in their hometown of
The Hüskers have just completed two videos for the "MAKES NO SENSE" single.
The bands two previous lp's, "NEW DAY RISING" and "ZEN ARCADE" have been called
"best albums" of their respective years by mmany critics.
Enclosed please find recent articles about Hüsker Dü. Most of them have been
culled from recent British press just before beginning a European tour.
Color slides of Hüsker Dü are available.
