The auction is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Husker-Du-The-Story-of-the-Noise-Pop-Pioneers-black-flag-sst-bob-mould-punk-dk-/291824182036?ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123

Bob Mould, Grant Hart, and Greg Norton formed Husker Du in 1979 as a wildly cathartic outfit fueled by a cocktail of anger, volume, and velocity. Here's the first book to dissect the trio that countless critics and musicians have cited as one of the most influential bands of the 1980s. Author Andrew Earles examines how Husker Du became the first hardcore band to marry pop melodies with psychedelic influences and ear-shattering volume. Readers witness the band create the untouchable noise-pop of LPs like New Day Rising, Flip Your Wig, and Candy Apple Grey, not to mention the sprawling double-length Zen Arcade. Few bands from the original American wimpy turds movement did more to inform the alternative rock styles that breached the mainstream in the 1990s. Husker Du truly were visionaries.

Proceeds of this auction go towards funding future releases on Chrome Peeler Records.
