The former Hüsker Dü co-songwriter/singer/drummer welcomes you into his world, immediately addresses any Hüsker Dü 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 Hüsker Dü’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.
