We just lost one of the greats. Grant Hart was 100% unpredictable. I've seen him chew out close friends for no reason and I've seen him share his food with bums on the street. His performances could be dire or inspired depending on his mood, which was quite capricious.

He was a great conversationalist. There's no way I could remember all of the factoids he would casually drop in the course of an idle chat after a show. Much of his stored information wound up in his songs and his songs are amongst the best I've ever heard.

Grant was kind enough to let me tape his shows. Here's a selection from a few of the best. There are lots of fond memories in these recordings and I'm glad that Mr. Hart allowed me the means to relive them. Please enjoy and share freely.

You're The Reflection Of The Moon On The Water/ So Far From Heaven/ Is The Sky The Limit (recorded live at The Cake Shop, NYC 11/22/13)

Awake, Arise/ 2541/ My Regrets/ She's A Woman (And Now He Is A Man)/ Barbara/ Where You Gonna Land (Next Time You Fall Off Of Your Mountain)/ Getaway In Time (recorded live at Bruar Falls, NYC 9/27/10)

Parchman Farm/ Green Eyes/ Turn On The News (recorded live at The Cake Shop, NYC 1/14/10)

Charity, Chastity, Prudence, and Hope (recorded live at Northsix, NYC 1/30/03)

Here is a very rare recording of a complete set from the ill- fated "Grave New World" tour. Well, almost complete. The gig took place at a strip bar on a Sunday afternoon. The band was cut short to make way for the topless dancers. That was still a better fate than what Discharge faced on most of this tour. It's a long story, best told by others. Dig this artifact of crossover gone terribly wrong, audience abuse and all.

It's epic.... it's informed.... it's got a storyline.... it's rock to the Nth degree.... it's THIS CRIMINAL SOUL recorded live at the lovely Lyric Theatre in New Haven, CT. It was their cd release party and thus, history in the making.

If ever there was a band who needed no introduction, it would be PSYCHO. So without further ado, he's a scorching live set of theirs from Club Bohemia in Cambridge, MA.

DIVIDED HEAVEN prove that "singer songwriter" is not a dirty phrase! Recorded live at Zephyr in the very thin air of Santa Fe, this dude delivers the goods.

Before there was DEVO (the band) there was DEVO (the idea). The dudes who conceived of DEVO are Jerry Casale and Bob Lewis. They recently shared the stage for the first time in 40+ years and I was there to document it.

Immediately afterward, Jerry Casale and David Kendrick (who was DEVO's drummer on several albums and tours) had an onstage reunion. I rolled tape and played guitar; an epic moment for yours truly and one of many epic moments for all in attendance at the DEVOtional fan gathering.

Personnel on "Auto Modown" and "Beehive":
Jerry Casale: bass, vocals
Bob Lewis: guitar
Scott Orsi: keyboards, vocals
Nick Ciasullo: drums

Personnel on "Beautiful World":
Jerry Casale: bass, vocals
David Kendrick: drums
Scott Orsi: keyboards, vocals
Malcolm Tent: guitar, vocals

These Danbury stalwarts recently called it quits and in honor of the momentous event I give you a recording of their hemi- semi final performance. Recorded live at the Wamleg in Wallingford, CT as part of the CT Punk Fest, you'll hear that these dudes went out with anything but a whimper.

It's always a treat for me to roll into a town and find myself on a bill with a band who are smart, funny, and who ROCK. JJCnV totally fit the bill. I hope you dig this recording of them live at the Loudhouse as much as I enjoyed making it.

How does one describe these dudes? Power trio? Student of Robert Fripp? Wild mountain music boys? Psychedelic garage rock? I have no idea, so I'll let the music do the talking. And the band, too, cuz there's an interview after the music. Listen!

If you like it fast, frantic, and involved, then crank this live set recorded on day #2 of the CT Punk Fest at the Wamleg.
