The tension between Husker Du members Bob Mould, Grant Hart, and Greg Norton is beginning to show in the fourth of five episodes dedicated to the band's history -- but the music is too great to deny.

The third episode of this history of the Twin Cities punk rock greats finds Bob Mould, Grant Hart, and Greg Norton hitting the road, turning itself into America's fastest hardcore band, making its classic first recordings -- 1982's Land Speed Record and "In a Free Land" and 1983's Everything Falls Apart -- and making national waves. Featuring interviews with Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and Henry Rollins (Black Flag).
The second in this intimate five-part history of the great Twin Cities band Husker Du follows Bob Mould, Grant Hart, and Greg Norton as they form a band and move from playing covers (as Buddy and the Returnables) to prolific songwriters, becoming a pillar of the Minneapolis-St. Paul punk community.
In the first of this illuminating five-part history of the great Twin Cities punks Husker Du, we meet the band before they became a band, following Grant Hart and Greg Norton as they grow up in St. Paul, and then encounter Bob Mould, a new kid at Macalester College with a Flying V guitar and a love for punk rock equal to theirs.
The world lost Grant Hart on September 13, 2017. He co-founded, wrote songs for, and drummed in the influential St. Paul trio Husker Du, inspiring legions of bands with his raw and poetic charm.
