husker du - llve in london 1985

thanks to the internet, we can transport ourselves back to the heyday of punk and post punk, and on a cold winter day, what could pass the time better than watching old HUSKER DU concert footage?

one of the best punk / underground rock bands of all time, HUSKER DU was a force to be reckoned with live........ and below is a perfect example - a riotous show from london in 1985..... right before FLIP YOUR WIG and directly after the release of NEW DAY RISING......both classic fucking albums.......  and not to sell themselves short they rip through plenty of high octane favorites from ZEN ARCADE, EVERYTHING FALLS APART and METAL CIRCUS as well.........  even if you've never listened to HUSKER DU, you'll be more than stoked to pogo around to this show........

after all, they influenced everyone from the noise poppers to the grunge rockers, and everyone in between.....yes even the college rockers, emo kids and pop punkers.....  anything with the HUSKER DU name on it is highly recommended by TINY GROOVES......'cause they broke up before they could fuck things up and left quite a string of important records in their wake, ones that still sound fresh today.....

so rock n roll below, and pretend you were there......
