See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody | [Bob Mould]

See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody

Bob Mould stormed into America's punk rock scene in 1979, when clubs across the country were filling with kids dressed in black leather and torn denim, packing in to see bands like the Ramones, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys. Hardcore punk was a riot of jackhammer rhythms, blistering tempos, and bottomless aggression. And at its center, a new band out of Minnesota called Hüsker Dü was bashing out songs and touring the country on no money, driven by the inspiration of guitarist and vocalist Bob Mould. Their music roused a generation.

    "More Bob than you have a right to."

    One of my favorite musicians writes an autobiography. This hasn't always worked out too well. Getting assistance from Michael Azerrad gave me some positive feelings about this one when it was coming down the road, and it turned out even better that I had anticipated. Well written, this look at Bob Mould's personal history and life in music really doesn't have a dull spot. He doesn't beat you over the head with information, he keeps things moving in the same way a good friend tells you a story about something that just happened to them.

    Authors reading their own work is always hit or miss. Here, it absolutely hits. His relaxed reading style really makes you feel like someone is reading to you, just you, and not reading woodenly from pages.

    Husker Du fans, Bob's solo fans, Sugar fans, rejoice! This book will satisfy any urge to glean information about those time-frames in his life. That he opens up and shares more than anyone would expect is just the icing on that cake you've heard about. Highly recommended.

    "BOB MOULD: THE LAST GREAT UNICORN"

    As a straight 45 year old woman, I am still in love with Bob Mould's music and the man himself. (...and heartbroken that he likes men). I absolutely loved this book. What a great history of all the music I love and grew up listening to.

    "Excellent history of one of music's good guys"

    Honest and compelling account of Bob's life read by the author. Very introspective and detailed, a story of redemption. Highly recommended.

    "Became an obsession."

    I like books about musicians and music. Although I wasn't fully knowledgable of his music, I became intrigued by his story. The book took a lot of twists and turns that I didn't expect. Very interesting.
