Posting on Soul Asylum got me thinking about the 80s Minneapolis scene. I was a huge Hüsker Dü and Replacements fan in high school. This cover of "Ticket To Ride" was taken from a NME 7" that also featured tracks by Trouble Funk, Tom Waits and The Jesus And Mary Chain.
I recently had a dream that I was wandering around Manhattan and stumbled into a building whose lobby was arranged in such a way as to be an exact replica of the cover for Warehouse: Songs And Stories. Or maybe it was supposed to be the set for the cover shoot, left untouched since 1987. It wasn't totally clear. I was just hoping to use the bathroom. I'm not sure what the dream meant, but I'm pretty sure it says something about me that in 2007 I would be having a dream about a Hüsker Dü album cover.
