    Hot Wax

    White/blue swirled vinyl!


    Grant Hart's first solo album of the 21st century is one of the best things he has ever done. The former Husker Du drummer and co-songwriter worked with the diverse cast of musicians from Godspeed You Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion on this new LP, Hot Wax, recorded in Montreal and Minneapolis. Grant on some of the some of the songs: the song Narcissus, Narcissus is my first attempt at combining ancient Greek mythology and American rock-a-billy. By merging those influences with an ice cream truck atmosphere I think I have found a style that defines this period of my career. You're the Reflection of the Moon on the Water is one of the most organic rock and roll songs that I have ever written. It's style owes a lot to my devotion for patti smith. It was inspired by a comment made by a monk during the selection process to find the next Panchen Lhama, who said of one candidate, he is the reflection of the moon on the water but he is not the moon.

    The Argument

    As founder and half of the songwriting engine that drove the mighty HÜsker DÜ to his maverick solo work (has there ever been a portrait of a breakup as evocative yet anthemic as "2541"?), Grant Hart has cut a singular path across the last three decades of music. It is with great confidence that we say he has made an album to rival his greatest achievements. A double album based on John Milton's epic Paradise Lost, Hart distills its essence into pop and rock concoctions that nimbly flit through the history of 20th century music from Irving Berlin and David Bowie to... HÜsker DÜ, even. Ambition is the topic and Hell is the location for this project that is ambitious as Hell. Does he pull it off? We say yes!


    Although lines from the poem are rarely quoted directly, all of the menace, pain and devotion of Milton's best loved work are here found. But where
    Milton's poem was unadorned by rhyme, The Argument contain many complex couplets, especially the title track, in which not only the ends of lines rhyme, but the word that ends a phrase is the same as the first line of the phrase after it, all while conforming to the original ten syllable structure devised by Milton. Anyone who has ever had a conversation with Grant knows how patiently he chooses the words he uses.


    While visiting James Grauerholz, former friend and secretary for William S. Burroughs, James showed Grant an unpublished manuscript for Lost Paradise,
    William's science fiction story which portrays the fallen angels as men from distant planets and God as none other than fellow Missourian Harry S. Truman.
    James and Grant discussed adding music to William's story much in the same way that Tom Waits and William conspired to turn the German folk tale Die
    Freishutz into The Black Rider as staged by Robert Wilson.


    From that point the seed had been planted, and the seed grew into the most beautiful tree in the garden of Grant's career!

    Good News For Modern Man


    First Time On Vinyl For This 1999 Solo Album From Ex Husker Du Drummer/songwriter!


    No one has to ask what the hell happened to Grant Hart? anymore. When last heard from in 1994, he was releasing his second LP with Nova Mob. His absence since was perhaps atypical, but here he is again, resuming his solo career for the first time in ten years. The good news is that Good News doesn't sound like Nova Mob or 1991's visceral Last Days of Pompeii, nor does it repeat his more introspective 1989 solo LP Intolerance or 1988's accomplished 2541 EP. Production-wise, this is the most pleasant Hart has come across. A sugar rush is added to his pronounced hooks, adding warmth without robbing the attack of vitality. It's hard to describe -- the first thought might be the exuberance of Cheap Trick on Surrender, only not so thumping. Songs such as Nobody Rides for Free and Seka Knows are not traditional power pop as much as vaguely restrained, crunchy-under-the-surface melodic rock songs with slight '60s influence. This steady, understated exhilaration is consistent with Hart's affable personality. You see it most on the lightest selection, Run Run Run to the Centre Pompidou, a jaunty pop romp to nowhere in gay Paris. But it's just as prevalent in the slower, demure tracks such as You Don't Have to Tell Me Now and, most unique of all, the Chills-like New Zealand hush of Teeny's Hair. Hart's control now is as impressive as when he was contrarily blistering the night with such incredible intensity behind the drums in 1984. His best LP since he parted company with Bob Mould and Greg Norton? Very likely!

    Intolerance

    1989's solo effort (originally issued by SST Records but long out of print), the first by a HUSKER DU member, lovingly reissued on 180-gram vinyl. Intolerance contains the Sounds magazine single of the week, 2541, a lament for lost love. Other rockers include Now That You Need Me, a very strong pop-rock song that was slated to be the single from the never made third HÜsker DÜ LP for Warner Bros. On the more introspective side of things, there is The Main, a traditional ballad in waltz time that tells the story of one man's descent into hell. Rollar Rink captures the atmosphere of a roller-skating party that has too many guests. Intolerance was a reaction to the sparse production of the Husker records and was GRANT HARTs first opportunity to reach for the sounds that were in his head all along.

    The Last Days Of Pompeii

    After breaking post-Husker Du ground with 1989's solo album, Intolerance, Grant Hart founded Nova Mob with bassist Tome Merkl and Mike (Chickie) Grego on drums. Aiming high with their first release, they recorded a 5 song demo of Hart's The Last Days of Pompeii. The band was signed by the short lived Rough Trade International label. The record had a release life of under a month due to that label's collapse. Now, this record is available for the first time in 20 years. The vinyl version of this recording includes a Digital Convenience card featuring the complete album plus the 5 song demo that paved the way for The Last Days of Pompeii.

    Savage Young Du (Out Of Stock)

    Experience the punishing sonic origins of a punk icon. Collected here for the first time, and skillfully remastered from original board tapes, demos, and session masters, this collection is an authoritative chronicling of the wellspring and maturation of Grant Hart, Greg Norton and Bob Mould - three Minneapolis teenagers who'd go on to become the most heralded trio of the American punk underground. Follow the HÜskers to their earliest gigs in 1979, through extensive road dog touring, and to the start of their partnership with West Coast tastemaker SST in 1983.


    This primitive stage in the fabled career of HÜsker DÜ is presented as a deluxe box set and packaged with a hardbound book crammed full of never before seen photos, flyers, and a sprawling essay with participation from the band. Spread across four LPs, 47 of the 69 songs compiled here are previously unissued. Also included are Statues/Amusement, In A Free Land, Everything Falls Apart, and an alternate recording of the Land Speed Record set.
