Dfactor Cover – Husker Du’s “Pink Turns to Blue”

Every month in 2006, I’ve recorded my own version of a favorite rock song from the past 40 or so years. I’ve posted these covers up at my 12 Months – 12 Covers series page.

I’m happy to unleash my August 2006 cover on the blogosphere – Husker Du’s “Pink Turns to Blue”, an essential track from an essential LP from Husker Du. This Grant Hart-penned number, from the band’s groundbreaking 1984 LP “Zen Arcade”, ruminates eerily on love, death and heroin over a killer Bob Mould guitar track and a thumping Greg Norton bassline.

Read more about “Zen Arcade” here and here. And for the Husker Du completist in you, venture ASAP to the Husker Du Archive.

I’ve also uploaded a new original rocker called See the Perfection over at my MySpace site. There’s also a couple more over at my SoundClick site, including “Shine” for those seeking a tasty treat! (Click on music link)
