Flip Your Wig
I've always been amazed at how prolific Hüsker Dü was. In their salad days (1984 to 87), they produced five dynamic records that married punk intensity to pop songcraft --and two of them were double-albums! But with two distinct voices in songwriters Bob Mould and Grant Hart, neither the quantity nor quality of their output is really surprising. Home to such memorable tunes as "Makes No Sense at All," "Flexible Flyer," and the title track, Flip Your Wig was the last album the band recorded for SST Records before moving on to bigger (if not necessarily better) things at Warner Bros.
