"Husker du", is a question and that question
is, "Do you remember?".
HUSKER DU, the band, is:
Bob Mould - guitar, vocals
Greg Norton - bass
Grant Hart - drums, vocals
Bob and Grant are the songwriters in the band and
each sings his songs.
Bob and Grant wrote up a load of songs last year
and Husker Du played them into microphones and called
the resulting double-album, "Zen Arcade".
Other people--not related--called "Zen Arcade" the
best album of the year, and Husker Du the best band
of the year.
Now, these Minnesotans could've been content to cash
in and cash in big on accolades like that--you know how
potato-eaters are--but instead they went right back to
writing more songs and playing them into microphones
all over again. This time the songs only added up to
one album, the new one--"NEW DAY RISING". But I'd
judge it more than enough songs (15), and these songs
are sure to keep the accolades coming, no prob.
And HUSKER DU will soon enough be touring both
coasts and the interior so they can play their songs
directly into people's ears. There's apparently a
demand for that.
Remember: "Husker du" is a question and that
question is, "Do you remember?".
