Land Speed Record

I remember trying to get into Husker Du when I was about 17. They had a song on a skateboard video (the second song in Jason Lee's section of Blind's 'Video Days' to be precise) which I really liked, but I borrowed a CD off someone at school and was REALLY disappointed. In retrospect, I probably borrowed the wrong album. Recently I decided to try again and I've been getting into them. So I added them to my eBay searches and last week I won this grey vinyl copy of their 'Land Speed Record' LP. Gotta love the SST colour vinyl, especially if it still has the 'color vinyl' sticker still attached.

There were two copies on eBay at the same time. The copy that ended first I won for £5. The second copy finished at a little over £11. Timing, as they say, is everything.

I've always felt Husker Du are a band I should like but I've never managed to get into them previously. Might give it another shot.

I feel the same way. I've tried one of their other albums...New Day Rising, maybe...but it did nothing for me. Maybe I'll try this album and see how it fares.

Zen Arcade is the album for getting into Husker Du.
