Workbook 25

When a band splits as acrimoniously as Hüsker Dü did in 1987, the first fruits of their rupture are bound to yield bitter seeds. Bob Mould's 1989 solo debut has its share (see "Poison Years"), but hope radiates through much of the LP. This 25th-anniversary reissue features an accelerated and raging '89 live rendering of the album that adds a few Hüsker classics – acoustic and disarmingly tender.
