Hüsker Dü - 1985 - Flip Your Wig

Hüsker Dü was an American rock band formed in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1979. The band's continual members were guitarist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton, and drummer Grant Hart. Hüsker Dü never achieved mainstream success, and sold modestly. Following a series of unsuccessful albums, including Zen Arcade (1984) and New Day Rising (1985), the band signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1986, becoming one of the first American underground rock bands to sign with a major record label. Hüsker Dü first gained notice as a hardcore punk band with thrashing tempos and screamed vocals. The band developed a more melodic musical style as they drifted away from their early sound, helping to develop the early alternative rock sound in the process. Mould and Hart split the songwriting and singing duties; Mould's lyrics were known for being more soul-searching and intense than the often whimsical and cryptic ones of Hart. Hüsker Dü broke up in 1987 without having achieved a popular breakthrough. Flip Your Wig is a 1985 album Hüsker Dü, and its last release on SST Records. With each album, Hüsker Dü's sound grew more sophisticated. By the time of this release, they had signed a major-label record deal. However, the band felt they owed one more album to SST and delivered Flip Your Wig. Perhaps owing to the expedient circumstances of its recording, Flip Your Wig  is overall lighter in tone than Hüsker Dü's earlier albums, with filler such as "The Baby Song." In this respect, it is viewed as less essential than New Day Rising and Zen Arcade, but critical opinion of the album generally registers high.
