NONE BUT THE GRAVE
"More depressing, more wry, but, yeah, there's a feeling of redemption," offers guitarist Daniel Murphy. "We've been doing this for a few years and we've been thrown a lot of loops."
Vocalist Dave Pirner is the principal songwriter. How does he approach his work?
"I think that I go out of my way to avoid writing pappy, fuckin' love songs, and dance songs, and sex songs," he explains. "But it's always a flushing out process. Music should be a little bit more than personal experience."
It's a process that works for Soul Asylum, and, as Pirner says, they have a rich history of music that is distinctly unique and distinctly their own to draw upon.
