Hüsker Dü’s Grant Hart, St. Paul punk rock pioneer, dies

Post by irreverentsoul »

The first time I saw Loud Fast Rules, they were opening for Husker Du at Duffy's at 26th & 26th in Minneapolis. Grant Hart had graduated a year ahead of me at South St Paul High School, so I was curious to check out Husker Du. A couple of years ago, I bumped into Grant at the South St Paul Post Office. He was there checking for his royalty check and I was there checking my P.O. Box. I said "Hi" and we ended talking about music for a while just like we were old friends...R.I.P. Grant!

RIP.

I've never really gotten around to checking Husker Du or The Replacements. Which albums would be a good way to start with?
