Du Huskers -The Twin Cities Replay The Zen Arcade
“Spring 1986, and two of San Francisco’s more dedicated scene chicks are running up and down their shotgun apartment, goofing on perspective. Second acid trip, fourth hour. the tweak is peaking. They whirl into the living room, giggling, holding onto walls and their tall boy buds. “Would you mind if I put on Zen?” asks one (let’s call her Jill). the other (uh… that’s me) winces, considers. She’s been hiding from Hüsker Dü’s Zen Arcade since it came out, afraid of it, really. To angry, too dense, too dark. What the hell, maybe it’s time. Jill drops the needle, second song, fourth side. Terri drops to the floor, pinned by the jogging purpose of the drums. They dig in for the journey. Suddenly a wave breaks over their heads and drags them out to sea. It’s “Reoccurring Dreams,” and by the time those 13:47 whine up, our ladies have learned to surf.” – Milk Milk Lemonade

Life After Sugar: Tribute

I received a package from Moscow, Russia the other day and had no idea what it was. I quickly realized that the curator of a certain (highly active) Sugar Myspace Fanpage, known to me as“D”, had completed an amazing project. It’s no small feat to organize 17 bands from around the world in order to present a tribute CD for a band this worthy of celebration. We are more than highly impressed and are fortunate to have received a copy. Before I forget, there is also Life After Sugar Myspace page dedicated to the actual CD and the bands that participated.Life After Sugar: Tribute was created simply because our friend D loves the music and this is evidenced by the fact that there were only 100 copies produced and they are not for sale.  Milk Milk Lemonade
