Bob Mould’s See A Little Light “CASSINGLE” – Old Crap from My Attic

By 8bitjeff (Jeff Fulton)

When Husker Du went “KAPUT” in the late 80’s, both Bob Mould (lead guitar, song writer and vocals) and Grant Hart (drums, song writer and vocals) went  their separate ways, each going on to create intriguing new musical projects.   Both Hart’s solo effort, Intolerance and Mould’s Workbook were excellent albums but very much a departure from the “wall of sound” that had defined the Minneapolis Hardcore (pop-core to a great extent) band’s previous sonic pallet.

Bob Mould’s excellent first single, released in 1989 on Virgin America Records,  was  “racked” as a  12″, 7″, CD, and mini CD as well as this gem, a  Cassette Single or “Cassingle” as we called them when I worked at a record store in the late 80’s. The reverse side of this acoustic-based song was  “All Those People Know”, a little bit faster and harder edged song.

The B side of this single was a song called All Those People Know:

All in all, this was a great single, and showed what kind of quality was to come from Bob Mould in the next few years, and even today.
