Bob Mould

Work­book

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff -

Af­ter var­i­ous in­ternecine band is­sues, Mould with­drew fol­low­ing the dis­in­te­gra­tion of Hüsker Dü. He went to live in a farm­house in ru­ral Minnesota to avoid the me­dia glare and any fur­ther fall­out of the band split. Re­flect­ing on both the in­ten­sity of Dü and his own fu­ture, he wrote this poignant set of acous­tic-led songs.

Recorded at Prince’s stu­dio, Work­book was anal­o­gous to Mould’s psy­che: crawl­ing from the wreck­age of Dü with the earnest See A Lit­tle Light, yet be­com­ing his own per­son with the as­sertive Wish­ing Well. It pointed to the way ahead.
