can't tell when this article came out in filter. the credit says this month, but the end sez '07. regardless, it's a pretty incredible post-mortem by the band. one of our faves.
as xmastime and i always remind ourselves, name another group (besides the foo fighters) with 2 more incredible songwriters ... and so it's on the record, the warner bros years (save a few amazing cuts, well a bunch, but by their standards, not enuff) are pretty unremarkable. (for the real deal see new day rising, flip your wig, zen arcade, metal circus ... in that order ... land speed record had 2 dozen chances, still awful).
grant hart "good news for modern man"
bob mould "workbook"
sugar "copper blue" (name a better 4 song starter, there are, but we need comments)
grant hart "intolerance"
husker du " the living end" (released post-mortem, from their last tour)
