Grant Hart RIP

This made me a bit fucking sad.

I've told this story before but I spent an evening with Grant, you know kinda in his company.

It was 1989 and we sat together in the balcony of the Subterranean club under the Westway and watched the gig. I didn't realise but I suppose he was probably trying to hit on me (never had very alert gaydar) - but given that I probably looked 16 I expect he imagined I was off-territory. Have always been cute...

All I remember was that he told me he thought Galaxie 500 were a "one-trick pony" - ha, ha, nailed it.
