    This is sort of on topic, one of my local newspapers had the music guy pick his fav releases of 2000….J Mascis & The Fog was 6th on his list. He actually did a pretty good review of it when it was finally released as an import in Canada….nice surprise. Anyways this is how it went…"They said grunge was dead. Too bad nobody told Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis, who emerges from hiding with swirling cyclones of axe torture, shambling drum rolls and the world-weariest croak since some guy named Kurt".

    I am in the same boat as somebody above, I bought tons of cd’s in 2000 but not all new ones. So my favs for the last 2 years in no particular order

    J Mascis & The Fog More Light
    Nash Kato Debutante
    Grant Hart Good News For Modern Man
    Bob Mould Last Dog and Pony Show
    Flaming Lips Soft Bulletin
    Hellacopters High Visibility
    The Rendezvous Band Getting There is Half the Fun (Tribute albumn for Fred Sonic Smith)
    Hydromatics Parts Unknown (you lucky europeans rumor is they are touring in June with Rock Action on drums)
    Thats all my small brain can handle right now.

    Happy Happy Joy Joy to everybody in the new year!!!




    I think we should nominate you for the Die Hard Fan Award in the Hüsker Dü Category as you are most likely the only one around who lists both Grant Hart and Bob Mould among their favourite ten records of the last two years. Well, myself, even back then, I prefered the Wipers (first 3 records), so I would like to know, where do you stand on that? Yet probably it was only in Germany, that Hüsker Dü and the Wipers where so often mentioned in the same sentence.

    if you don’t find what you are looking for, ask for it



    Hey Dimpfelmoser,

    Gladly accept the award but there are a few more out there who appreciate the amazing tunes put out by Bob Mould & Grant Hart. Have followed them thru all the different shapes….Sugar, Nova Mob & loads of solo stuff by both. Just checked our a review of Grant Hart in Chicago, man o man he played all the hits thru Husker Du, Nova Mob and current sounds, he writes amazing songs and has a fantastic voice. Always shocks me that Sugar was not more popular, Gee Angel, Needle Hits E still get lots of play. Bob Moulds solo stuff is great just a little intense sometime. Wipers were/are very cool but in my book Husker Du rules the midwest.


    ps althou these are not active links if your a fan check our granthart.com & granarymusic.com
