Soul Asylum : No Fun Intended EPVeteran alt-rockers Soul Asylum have been around for a long time, from their early days in Minneapolis to mainstream breakthrough in the grunge heyday with Grave Dancer’s Union (which recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary), from scoring Kevin Smith movies to bassist Karl Mueller’s tragic death from cancer in 2004 – singer/guitarist David Pirner even dated Winona Ryder in one of the most nineties celebrity relationships ever.

But they’re still young enough to have their own influences, which they’re celebrating with a series of self-released EPs, starting with no fun intended, which features the group covering “Attacking The Beat” from Minneapolis legends The Suicide Commandos, the iconic “Love Will Tear Us Apart” from the iconic Joy Division, and Shakin’ Street” from proto-punks MC5.  Hopefully there will be a cover of fellow Minneapolisians Hüsker Dü (QRO spotlight on) at some point – though Replacements cover may be a bit much, since the other big band from the Twin Cities is represented in Soul Asylum itself with Mueller’s replacement, Tommy Stinson…
