This week on IHRTN will be dedicated to “See A Little Light: The Trail Of Rage And Melody” – an upcoming biography of former Husker Du/Sugar frontman Bob Mould.
As Slicing Up Eyeballs points out:
Billed as “a classic story of individualism and persistence,” the long-in-the-works autobiography byHüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould — titled “See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody” — is scheduled to be published June 15 by Little, Brown and Company.
Co-written by Michael Azerrad, author of“Our Band Could be Your Life: Scenes From the American Indie Underground, 1981-1991,”the 288-page hardcover will reveal Mould’s “struggles with homosexuality, intimate relationships and drug and alcohol addiction,” according to the publisher.
On the musical side, the book will trace Mould’s “early love of 1960s AM radio pop hits to the Ramones to the making of Hüsker Dü classics like ‘Makes No Sense At All’ and ‘Celebrated Summer,’” as well as his post-Hüskers solo career (from which the book gleans its title), his ’90s band Sugar and beyond — including detours into both electronic music and professional wrestling.
Mould’s book arrives just eight months after Andrew Earles’ comprehensive biography“Hüsker Dü: The Story of the Noise-Pop Pioneers Who Launched Modern Rock,” which featured interviews with bandmates Grant Hart and Greg Norton — but not Mould.
Marathon will start with overview of different chapters of the book (with each chapter accompanied by a soundtrack/mixtape) and will end with a review of the book.
