This brief review of the just-released Hüsker Dü Candy Apple Grey
album appeared in
Guilty Face #2 in the spring of 1986.
It's not credited but was probably written by either Alastair or Peter Nixon,
the zine's editors (more likely Alastair).
HUSKER DU - CANDY APPLE GREY LP. All the hardcore thrashers will hate this,but I still love Husker Du,as you may already have gathered. This LP is a mega-improvement on FLIP YOUR WIG - there's at least 5 songs on here which can only be described as 'simply brilliant',but even the slow acoustic songs are moving and powerful.Huskers have come up with the goods yet again. ---------------------------
