Husker Du – Eight Miles High

Approach this version of The Byrds’ classic with the ears of a punk and the sensibility of a forensic investigator. Imagine viewing the muse of Roger McGuinn burnt beyond recognition. On this monumental track, leader/vocalist/guitarist Bob Mould replaces the Coltrane inspired electric 12 string solo of the original with a throat shredding howl that could cause a sudden flux of the bowels if unprepared.
