Mike Powers Falls short of perfection only in its conspicuous failure to include a bari sax solo.

Great counterpoint in the breaks


The original version of this song appeared on Husker Du's record Zen Arcade, a frantic double album that they recorded in 3 days or so... crazy. Inspiring, too.

I ingested this album in high school. It sounded so much heavier than any other SST album, like the real thing, warts and all. Now I realize it's a queer album, all about self-identity, individuality. That would have made me even more excited about this epic, indescribable masterpiece. Maybe one day, they will remaster it for the digital world, and it will kick the living shit out of the Arctic Monkeys, et al. It sounds a little thin on CD right now. The chord progression to this song is just absolutely ape shit bananas. We had a few extra hours booked at the tail end of tracking basics at the studio, so we learned the tune and train-wrecked it. It definitely did not cry out for a horn section, so naturally I thought it would be a good idea to include one. Nilsy arranged the horns and had his pals perform it.


Never cared a thing about me...
