Sweet Potato, 1981

This little Land Speed Record preview blurb appeared in the 19 Nov 1981 issue of Sweet Potato in Minneapolis.

  Is it a bird, a plane or a record
played at the wrong speed? dept:
None of the above — it's a new
Hüsker Dü  12-inch LP with 17 — 
count 'em, 17 — songs on it.  The
L.A. underground label, New Alli-
ance, is sporting the Land Speed
Record; watch for it soon in the
stores.  John Cale, who heard the
mighty power trio rip through one of
its classic raw sets in Chicago recent-
ly, is rumored to be very interested in
working with the band.
