In the mid to late 80’s Zeppelin was my primary source of music. However, around the same time I began to explore the works of Husker Du. The underrated trio from Minneapolis put out some great albums, “Zen Arcade”, “New Day Rising”, “Flip Your Wig”, “Candy Apple Grey”. But 1987’s Warehouse: Songs and Stories was a masterpiece, definitely one of my 20 favorite albums. Unfortunately it turned out to be the bands last record due to an disagreement between Bob Mould [Guitar, Vocals] and Grant Hart [Drummer, Vocals] .
*Husker Du influenced The Pixies and Dinosaur Jr.
*Mould’s solo debut- Workbook love it
*Damnwells – Doing their best Jeff Tweedy and doing it well. Great, great song!
*Morphine -Cure for Pain (5 Stars)
*Elbow – UK veterans hitting their stride – Cast of Thousands
*Avett Brothers – One of the most exiting live acts out today. They are recording their next album with Rick Rubin.
*The Felice Brothers – Tonight At The Arizona (5 Stars)
*You can tell that Mark Sandman looked up to Mark Lanegan
*I cannot believe Jimmy Page is putting Zeppelin back together w/o Robert Plant. Huh, Huh?
