Hüsker Dü - Eight Miles High

Grant Hart was the drummer in Hüsker Dü. The news of his death was announced today ...

Hüsker Dü are one of the most important bands in my life ... whilst I silently reflect, here's a wonderful and poignant cover of The Byrds' Eight Miles High with a live version of Masochism World on the reverse.

7" released on SST in 1984.

Holy shit I hadn't heard about Grant Hart. Very sad day indeed. Much thanks for the remembrance with this blistering brilliant 7-inch from the Huskers.

I'm in that club too. Zen Arcade defined a period in my life. Everything about that album--title; music; cover art; gatefold with lyrics simply presented--spoke to and for my being. No words can describe it.
