Oh, I'm on a mini-break, didn't I mention that? In the meantime, transfix yourself on this image: it's Husker Du ca. 1983. Despite looking like a badly-dressed criminal line-up from the 1970s, at this stage the band was a raging beast, one just starting to shed its hardcore roots and move into a more expansive direction. For me this shot is a great equation of musical inspiration + zero fashion sense: an encapsulation of the SST "ethic", if ever there was. Maybe I'll bore the piss out of you all by writing about it once again...
