The chronicle of the rise of Semisonic, as told by their drummer. I'm not a fan of Semisonic, but the other two guys were in Trip Shakespeare, whom I kind of adored. Regardless of my apathy about Semisonic, this is a total page-turner insider account of what happens when you become a reasonably popular band. The guy's a good chronicler. I'm really enjoying this book.
