“I feel so grateful that Bob chose to share his life story in such a candid and open manner. See A Little Light stands tall with the greatest rock and roll memoirs of all time.”
—Benjamin Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie
“Bob Mould”s incredible journey is an inspiring one. I hope to one day be able to write a book like this, to live like this, to rock like this.”
Bob Mould”s inspirational and critically lauded autobiography, See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody, is now available in a softcover edition just released by Cleis Press.
See A Little Light recounts the unique history of one of the most revered figures of independent music, a creative voice whose singular intensity altered the course of American music and queer culture. Revealing the struggles with his own homosexuality, the best online casino complexities of his intimate relationships, as well as his own drug and alcohol addiction, Mould opens up to describe life inside that furnace and beyond.
Bob Mould stormed onto America”s punk rock scene in 1979, bursting forth from Minnesota with the legendary trio Hüsker Dü, who instantly exceeded the speed and volume of the hardcore standard, but matured to imbue it with peerless melody and emotional depth. Hüsker Dü”s ambition was rivaled only by its self-destructive bent, and See A Little Light chronicles the turmoil that surrounded the creation of classics like the 2LP conceptual opus Zen Arcade, New Day Rising, Flip Your Wig, and Candy Apple Grey, before the band would flame out barely 8 years from their inception.
A classic story of individualism and persistence, See A Little Light takes us on Mould’s whirlwind ride through achieving sobriety, the acclaimed solo career ignited by his stunning 1989 solo debut Workbook and bookending his second classic trio Sugar and its two indelible albums Copper Blue and File Under: Easy Listening, his surprising detour into the world of pro wrestling, and his ultimately coming to a current state of peace with his family, friends, music and–most of all–himself.
Bob is currently writing and rehearsing material for the follow up to his recent Silver Age album, having just wound down a successful world tour in support of that record.
