Just unearthed, these Husker Du songs with Grant Hart playing and singing with Buffalo Tom in Chicago in December 2000. Grant supported us solo on a couple of shows in the Midwest during a mini tour promoting our A-Sides collection. Also notable in his support was Howie Day, who went on to reach the heights of rock stardom, thus joining a long line of openers for Bt who received our midas touch and went on to leave us in their dust: Hole; Pearl Jam; Goo Goo Dolls; Jewel...
It was a thrill for us to play with Grant, Husker Du being directly influential to us when we started, as outlined a bit in this blog (particularly here). By the way, I have been wading into the four or five boxes in my attic that constitue the Janovitz Branch of the Buff Tom Archive and I stumbled across that article where Grant picks the first BT LP as "Album of the Decade." I am still riding the high of that one 22 years later. I will scan it and insert it here when I find it. I have posted a bunch of scans over at the BT Facebook page. Then I have to let go of the nostalgia for a bit and BT gets ready to release our 8th LP.
I've always loved Grant's songs. Here are a couple of my faves.
