Grant Hart – Every Everything: The Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart
Director Gorman Bechard’s “Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times Of Grant Hart” documentary shows a 100% unfiltered, unrestrained Grant Hart.
The former Husker Du co-songwriter/singer/drummer welcomes you into his world, immediately addresses any Husker Du reunion possibilities in an old interview, and is shown wailing behind his kit during that renowned middle-American punk band’s heyday. And that all happens before the film’s title even appears. What follows is a revelatory exploration of a singularly unique artistic force, one whose creative career is often overshadowed by that of his former band mate, and who finally, rightfully, gets a moment in the spotlight.
It’s an oral and aural history of Husker Du’s so-called “wild one”, from his rocky family life through the formation of his most well-known band; from their bitter break-up into the musical projects that followed; from his troubled past to his hopes for the future.
This is one of the most off-the-wall, yet riveting conversations that you will witness for a long time, a no-holds-barred history of rock and roll and an insider view of the music industry. Hart is a captivating, candid subject who holds the screen as he holds forth on everything from the mismanagement of seminal label SST, his relationship with William S. Burroughs, and his new double-album take on Milton’s “Paradise Lost.”
Every Everything is an insight into a piece of American musical history, through the eyes and thoughts of a truly fascinating and intellectual individual, who is arguably one of the most influential musicians in the last thirty years. It’s a Hart’s life, and it’s all here. Everything.
