Grant Hart 1961-2017

14/9/17
 

An excerpt from the book 'Buried Treasure' (Libery Press, 2016):

"Grant Hart's 'Intolerance LP' from 1989 is a truly beautiful record with great songs. I first heard it in 1991, when I was living in Dublin. I think I bought it in Comet records or Freebird - I can't quite remember. When I first heard it, I just knew that the argument about who was the better writer in Husker Du was redundant. It was Grant all the way for me.

His voice, sense of melody and use of language was just extraordinary. Grant also looked like someone you wanted to hang out with. Bob wrote some great songs too, but Grant is also a painter, and that quality and form also translates into his songs. They aren't one dimensional. They live on and off the record.

It certainly didn't, and still hasn't become an internationally known record. I think it's a safe bet to say it's tucked away in the large universe of cult records, which is a shame, but those that do know it, love it. Some people even wrote songs about Grant. There is also a film about him which is worth tracking down.

The first time I saw Grant play was when I opened for him at a show in 1992. I still have the huge street poster for it somewhere. It's too big to frame but it's a lovely reminder of the event. I fondly remember meeting him for the first time and I've seen him many times over the last couple of decades, and have played more shows with him, and we hung out a bit.

The thing with Grant is that he is out there somewhere, and always doing something, whether it's playing shows, painting or making a record. He exists in his own world and marches to his own drum, and I can understand and relate to that."
