Recorded on the road during the seminal Minneapolis trio’s final tour in 1987-88, The Living End offers 77 raging minutes of Husker Du doing what it did best: melding emotionally charged hardcore to ringing pop hooks. The roots of most of today’s Nirvana-bes can be found right here. If more of those baby bands made music as galvanizing as the Huskers used to do, all would be well in alternative land.
