Various - There's a Boy Who Lives on Heaven Hill - A tribute to Hüsker Dü (1994, Burning Heart)

This is a quick follow-up to yesterdays post of my Hüsker Dü tribute split 7." First off, I neglected to mention that in 2008 I shared a full-length Hüsker covers album on here called Case Closed? An International Tribute to Hüsker Dü. And I'm sharing yet another one right here, albeit a lot briefer. Released by the Swedish Burning Heart Records some fifteen years ago, there are no household names on the roster, but aficionados of Scandinavian power pop may be clued into Popsicle, who turn in a decaffeinated version of the Warehouse: Songs and Stories favorite, "Visionary." Furthermore, ear-to-the-ground fans of post-hardcore punk will be happy to see that Fireside make an appearance here. There's a Boy on Heaven Hill isn't something to die for (then again what covers album is?) but at any rate, is a respectable testament to Hüsker Dü's appeal outside of North America.

01. Sator - Pink Turns to Blue
02. Merryland - Back From Somewhere
03. Popsicle - Visionary
04. Fireside - Don't Wanna Know if You Are Lonely
05. Ledfoot - The Girl Who Lives of Heaven Hill

That Sator version of Pink Turns to Blue is pretty darn great.
