Hüsker Dü: Eight Miles High / Makes No Sense At All (1990)
She said Husker Du got huge, but they started in St. Paul
Do you remember "Makes No Sense At All?"
We Can Get Together, The Hold Steady
Makes No Sense At All was the only single released from Flip Your Wig. In 1990, it was joined with a pre-Zen Arcade single, Eight Mikes High (the cover of the Byrds track) and two other tracks: Masochism World and Love is All Around, the band's improbable cover of the theme to the Mary Tyler Moore show. How bizarre is that? I get the Minneapolis connection, but that is just weird, though I think it works. (In other words, this record combines SST 025 and SST 051).
Anyway, this four track compilation or EP was released on CD, cassette, and 10" vinyl. In 1991, it was repressed only on 10" black, green marbled, or purple marbled vinyl. I have a copy of the purple marbled version.
