Quick Overview

Hailing from Minnesota, Marcellus Hall arrived in New York in the 1990s to form Railroad Jerk, an industrial grunge-folk band whose four Lps on Matador Records helped define the era. With trademark absurdest yet poignant lyrics, Hall went on to form (with drummer Dave Varenka) White Hassle, a duo with guitar, harmonica and drums that pre-dated the White Stripes and the Black Keys. Hall then embarked on a solo incarnation that enlisted the talents of Damon Smith on bass, Matt Martin on keyboard and Jimmy Ansourian on drums. The quartet played shows in and around New York while recording songs.
