Hüsker Dü

Hüsker Dü

Profile:
Punk/hardcore trio who were formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, in 1979. Hüsker Dü (which means "Do you remember" in Danish and Norwegian, but is actually spelt without diaereses) mixed pop and punk music and consisted of guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, bassist Greg Norton and drummer Grant Hart. They started out as an aggressive hardcore thrash band before expanding to other musical formats. After releasing a string of albums, Hüsker Dü split in 1988 due to Grant Hart's alcohol and drug problems, and the suicide of the band's manager, David Savoy Jr., who was considered an important part of the band.

Bob Mould went on to form Sugar (5), whilst Grant Hart formed Nova Mob with both of them disbanding their respective groups in the mid-'90s and going on to only produce for their solo projects. Greg Norton is no longer involved in the music business, which he gave-up to become a restaurant owner.

Grant Hart died after battling cancer on September 14th 2017.

Grant Hart 1961 - 2017 R.I.P. Late Wednesday or early today, Grant passed away after a
bout with cancer. He was always nice to me...

One of quintessential 80s band which is rarely mentioned anywhere (although they were mentioned on VH1 100 Greatest Artists Artists of Hard Rock). Their music was inhumanely fast (witness their first record, live album "Land Speed Record" which was just a taster of what's to come), but had a traditional pop structure beneath the surface. Its a crying shame that they quit too early due to Grant Hart acting like an idiot, but in my book they remain one of the strongest hardcore/alternative bands that ever came to life.
