Still keeping with the Golden Smog-related theme, here is the other known band with member components that were part of Golden Smog, Soul Asylum. Guitarist Dan Murphy was one of the founders of Golden Smog, and has been with all its incarnations, Dave Pirner was also involved with Golden Smog in its early days, but their main band was Soul Asylum. Soul Asylum was formed in the early eighties by Pirner and Murphy, where they played around the Minneapolis Area, becoming known for their loud, frenetic mix of punk, hardcore, mainstream rock, and country. They had several independent releases through the mid-eighties, then released a couple albums on A&M in the late eighties, without getting much attention or recognition. After featuring more of their acoustic side in shows in the early '90's, their big breakthrough came in 1992, with the release of Grave Dancer's Union, which went triple-platinum and featured radio hits 'Runaway Train', 'Black Gold', and 'Somebody to Shove'. 'Runaway Train' also won a Grammy for best Rock Song. Their follow-up album, Let Your Dim Light Shine (1995) was also very successful, and produced a top-20 hit with 'Misery'. Although subsequent albums were much less successful, Soul Asylum continued on and off over the years (most recent album, Delayed Reaction - 2012) and are still performing today. Here is a radio show from them in their prime, their 1995 show at Glastonbury.
