Very sad news, I am a huge Husker Du fan and whilst his solo output hasn't been as prolific as former band mate Bob Mould, he did write some beautiful songs. 

My first ever place with a girlfriend was a tiny studio apartment in Rushcutters Bay. The place was so small our lounge had to double as our bed but did have great big windows to let in the sun. The first thing I unpacked and set up was my stereo and the first song I played was Grant's classic 2541. It's been a tradition that every time I have moved, since that place in 1989, I have played that song. Right up to our more recent purchase on the Bellarine this last Xmas. 

RIP Grant.

That first song was beautiful, thanks.  I've been trying to listen to more new old music.  This one comes to mind basically every few days in one context or another.  Hooray for melodic punk rock...
