DOCUMENTARY: I remember a much healthier looking Grant Hart and it seems this film by Gorman Blanchard “Everything Everything” going to show the darkside judging from very ominous looking Kickstarter trailer. It was the year 2000 or so when I met Grant in Athens GA at the 40 Watt on tour with my old band Aviso’Hara. He was doing a one man show and his guitar tour in a cadillac. Working to make back tax money I think he owed from all his huskers money that he never claimed. Being a wild man throwing beer cans into the audience. Yelling at them for requesting Hüsker Dü songs that he did not write or people not getting into it. I don’t know, when methadone is your sober friend I’m not sure you ever wake up from the cloud of “you fucked up” with that stark trip.
Bob Mould gave the man lots of props in his Autobiography for truly writing some steller songs. His voice is that of an angel lets not forget his gifts. But lets be clear he’s a much prettier singer than Mr. Mould. But what do you really know when you think you’re on dope. Anyway here’s wishing him a blues masters recovery and comeback one day.
If there’s one thing that I can’t explain
Is why the world has to have so much pain
With all the ways of communicating
We can’t get in touch with who we’re hating
