"Flip Your Wig" is the Huskers last album for the SST label and marks a dramatic leap forward in the bands sound firmly away from any last traces of hardcore punk into the nucleus of what was to become indie or college rock. The overall sound of the album is bigger and certainly more commercial than their previous records with a vocal mix high enough above the roar of guitar to showcase the bands harmonies. The stand out track on the album is Mould's "Makes No Sense At All" a powerpop/punk classic single which marked a new phase in the bands career moving towards a more radio friendly sound. Grant Hart also begins to emerge from Mould's shadow with five impressive tunes, including "Green Eyes" which remains one of his best and a missed opportunity as a second single. "Flip Your Wig" is a classic album and the perfect introduction to the band.

When you take into account the friction that existed within Husker Du throughout their existence, it kind of explains the intensity of their songwriting, the ferocious delivery of some of the lyrics and the end product that whilst cohesive, still kind of has the feeling of a lovely tapestry that could come apart at any given moment.

When Flip Your Wig was released it rode on the back of two of the most important albums of the so called 'hard core' era. This, their last release for SST was less fierce than 'New Day Rising' and less adventurous than 'Zen Arcade', yet somehow it didn't suffer for it.

Within this albums myriad of tracks lie some absolute Husker Du gems, my personal favourite 'Green Eyes' being one of them. It also had what most people at the time was their most accessible single release 'Makes No Sense at All' which I'm fairly sure was aired on the Tube or something like that around this period.

I waited at the time for the 'wow, you knew about this lot for so long, that's really cool' in the same way as I did when REM suddenly hit the consciousness with Out Of Time... but sadly, for most people Husker Du remain a band that maybe has been name checked but not really heard.

So, is this an album you need for your collection, yes, absolutely. Is it Husker Du's best? No, that award almost certainly sits with Zen, New Day and Warehouse, but darn it, this is not far off it. Perhaps 2 or 3 songs are not exactly needed and perhaps was an indication of the on going competition with the Minutemen in terms of cramming as many tracks on an album as possible, but this is a very good record.

Go on, it's a bargain price and a very, very good record.

Husker Du was a band with an enormous amount of musical detail and introspective songwriting, which was what really set it apart from the other punk/hardcore bands of the time. Like other some other groups of the same era in underground music, Husker Du can't really be pigeonholed as a hardcore band or maybe even as a punk band.

'Flip Your Wig' is a very good album, not as good as 'New Day Rising' but every bit as good as 'Zen Arcade' (also a great album, but could have benefited from better production). As much as I like this album and enjoy listening to it, I don't think it contains Grant Hart at his very best. Here Grant Hart's songwriting, though signifying somewhat better craftsmanship, comes across as being somewhat more conventional and not as interesting to me than it was on the previous two albums. Bob Mould, however, is at his finest on this album; 'Divide and Conquer' and 'Makes No Sense at All' are some of the best songs he's ever written. I'd recommend this album, along with anything else Husker Du has done with the possible exception of 'Land Speed Record.' I also recommend that anyone interested in this check out Husker Du's SST label-mates The Minutemen and The Meat Puppets.

Great album from one of my all time favourite bands! I remember buying warehouse songs and stories probably around 2 decades ago now and how much I loved that album but this one somehow has more of a "Rough" Feel to it in spite of its wonderful melodic tunes. Makes no sense at all has to stand out amongst the tracks but green eyes comes close. These really are perhaps the most underrated bands out there and I cant recommend them enough.
