PICTURE SLEEVE OF THE WEEK: For their third full-length album, “Zen Arcade,”
Minneapolis’ Hüsker Dü went big, both in content and packaging. It was an
ambitious concept record that was originally released in 1984 on SST Records
as a double album in a gatefold sleeve. The artwork was credited to “Fake Name
Graphx,” the alias for Grant Hart, the band’s drummer, and along with Bob Mould,
one of the main songwriters and vocalists. He also designed most of the covers
for the other Hüsker Dü releases. Click to enlarge.
