Hüsker Dü In Their Own Way

Mark Dery, Creem, June 1987

"In Switzerland they kept slammin' the microphone into my face and throwing beer cans at us all night. So the next person that did it, I just put my foot right in his chest and pushed him about 12 feet across the floor. I said, 'Would you please turn the house lights on?,' and they turned 'em on – and I just went out after the guy. I told the rest of 'em that if they wanted to take a shot at it, c'mon up. The Price Is Right, y'know?"
– Bob Mould
