Grant Hart - Oeuvrevue

- by Thomas

Back in the day a band named Hüsker Dü released an album called “Land Speed Record” and wrote punkrock history. They did that several more times with albums like “Zen Arcade” and a bunch of others. Then Bob Mould and Grant Hart got into a fight and Hüsker Dü was no more. But not before influencing a whole mess of other bands like… well, pretty much every alternative band that was around in the 90s.

Both Bob Mould and Grant Hart started a solo career after that with varying degrees of success and now there’s this Grant Hart collection of rarities from between 1988 and 1995 with a title that has to be one of the worst puns ever. It’s a compilation that is not really that good because there are a shitload of good songs missing on here. The songs that did make the cut are messy live or radio recordings of his own songs, a couple of covers including Willie Dixon’s “I Just Want To Make Love To You” and some very average new songs ‘thrown in for fun listening’.

Best to forget about this album and order a Hüsker Dü album instead!
Score: 5.5 out of 10
