In the last few weeks, I've managed to actually read a couple of books, which has always seemed like an impossibility when school is in session. I'm hoping I can maintain the momentum as the semester goes on. We'll see what happens when all the papers start coming in.
See a Little Light by Bob Mould with Michael Azzerad was the first book I read this year. Hüsker Dü has always been one of my favourite hardcore bands, and I was excited to read Mould's (a primary member of the trio) memoir. Hüsker Dü definitely expanded the range of music to be found in the punk scene of the '80s, and the fact that Mould is now an out gay man added another dimension of interest.
