Husker Dü

Blake Gumprecht, Alternative America, Winter 1983

FORMED IN MINNEAPOLIS in the Summer of 1979, Husker Dü ("Do you remember" in Danish) released their first 45, 'Statues', in 1980. After their extensive "Children's Crusade" tour of 1981 – playing with the likes of Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, and D.O.A. – the band recorded their homecoming gig for a live album, Land Speed Record, on New Alliance Records. A studio 45, 'In a Free Land', followed early last year.
