Bob Mould has been on the road supporting his album Silver Age. He recently stopped by New York's Q104.3 for a short interview - he talked about Hüsker Dü's first show (a matinee with the Replacements!), how he came to work with Dave Grohl, and his short stint as a script writer for the WWE. Watch the interview below:



Mould's ex-bandmate Grant Hart is the subject of a new feature length documentary titled Every Everything, the Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart. The film was directed by Gorman Bechard, (directed the Replacements' film Color Me Obsessed) and is a look back at Hart's life, influences, music, and art - the good, the bad and the ugly - as told by Hart himself. The film is expected to premiere this summer at film festivals, and a Kickstarter campaign has been launched to help fund the final sound mix for the film. Visit the Kickstarter campaign here and take a look at the trailer for Every Everything, the Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart below.



Grant Hart will return with a double album titled The Argument, based on John Milton's Paradise Lost, this summer (date to be announced).  Hart also spent some time recently on Facebook answering fan questions - he discussed the upcoming documentary, as well as a host of other topics, including old school band reunions.  Read what Hart had to say about reunions below:

"If I would have had the chance to see Gene Vincent when I was twenty I would have been crazy happy. But somehow the reunion fad seems to be energized by mid-life crisis. I am sure Bob would agree with me on this, I would rather have Grant Hart fans coming to my own shows than Hüsker Dü fans. Or Nova Mob fans. I want people coming that don't feel like they are settling for something less. My shows are not compromises with the past. My shows are as much about the future as I can make them. And the future is right fucking now! I have run into bands having a bad time of it reuniting for a tour. Bummed out and discouraged. What did they do it for if it did not make them happy to do it?"

The full Q & A is posted here.  Catch up with Grant Hart on Facebook and Twitter.
