When [livejournal.com profile] mudcub came to my bonfire, he gifted me with a copy of See a Little Light, the autobiography of Bob Mould.

Bob is a casual acquaintance and Coachella friend. The book spans his life, including the 2009 Coachella set I got to see him play. Bob's party, blow off, was on in DC on a weekend that I was there and Bob was amazing to walk me around between his sets and introduce me to some of his DC friends.

Bob's story was interesting. The book flows well, with just the right amount of introspection, and not too much navel gazing. I should probably admit to not knowing a lot of his music. I was too young for Husker Du and Sugar never appeared on my radar. I found that I didn't need to know these two bands to be able to follow along.

The book progresses from album to album through his career and I found myself wanting to go into Mould's back catalog as I read along.

I wonder if he realizes that his book has this effect! I hope the book does wonders for his back catalog!

Glad you like the book! As for me, today I'm listening to outtakes from "Zen Arcade".
