    I never write mash notes. 

    But back around “Candy Apple Grey,” when my life and career were in utter, lost, mid-20s chaos and Husker Du were one of about two things keeping me sane, I wrote a massive long mash note to the band care of SST Records, thanking them for doing so. Never expected a reply, never got one, don’t care. 

    They were the core DNA of countless mix-tapes I made. I caught them live in Providence and New London. Got my nose busted slam-dancing at their show in a disused asbestos-removal training facility in industrial Philadelphia. I kept up with Mould through his solo / Sugar / later-solo phases.

    And I have to say, the sound still galvanizes my day every single time I play it. Can’t wait to see this film.

    LOL, Styx was sadly my first ever concert as well. As for Husker, well, I have borrowed them for my usernames on many of the interwebs. I’m reading Mould’s memoir right now.

    Mould is my personal guitar hero. Workbook is the soundtrack to my deepest, darkest depressions, and has saved me more than once.  Will be helping him here, with gratitude for being able to do so. Thanks for posting this, Dave.
