Hüsker Dü – “New Day Rising” LP
The third album from the Minneapolis godfathers of melodic hardcore punk, released By S.S.T. in 1985. The thin production by Spot remains forever contentious, but the new level of songwriting skills shown in tracks like I Apologise and Celebrated Summer (the song to stop anyone, dead in their tracks), are without doubt, beyond reproach. Its S.S.T. and so its outrageously expensive. Despite the price, no home should be without a copy.
