GRANT HART (HUSKER DU) + FAWN SPOTS + BAD PAINTINGS & YOU SET THE SCENE DJS
It’s only flipping Grant Hart in York, how good is that!
Founder member, drummer and songrwiter for the mighty Hüsker Dü along with Greg Norton and Bob Mould. And only seventeen years old at the time!
Hüsker Dü made several records for the legendary "SST" label including the much-loved "Zen Arcade", "New Day Rising" and "Flip Your Wig". Moving on to Warner Brothers Records in 1985 they made two fine albums, 1986's "Candy Apple Grey" and the band's second double album, "Warehouse".
Using a fake name, Grant produced all the award-winning visual art for the band, including all the record covers, but ironically it was his refusal to take the credit for this work that caused friction when other members insisted on receiving a fee for production of the records.
Leaving in ’87 to form "The Swallows" and then "Nova Mob" (disbanded ’97), Hart and Mould became embroiled in one of rock music's most enduring feuds.
Grant's solo records have been subtle, thematic renderings moving the listener along route, building up to dramatic climax with "Good News for Modern Man" with Hart’s regular practice of laying down all instrumental tracks himself.
Our man’s arts skills remain as sharp as ever but music is still his stock in trade – very excited for this …
