Biography

From the band's earliest days, the music of Beat Happening felt out of time. Infused with a primitivism worthy of the earliest rock and roll and a romance suggestive of the first warm evenings of the year, Bret Lunsford, Calvin Johnson, and Heather Lewis' songs evoked a mysterious, lovelorn intimacy. When heard in the basements and strobe lit halls of the nascent DIY movement they helped pioneer alongside Johnson’s K Records, the directness of these affairs of the heart seemed revolutionary, if not confrontational.
