Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Time Out and Daily News Top Ten Book of the Year upon its initial release, Please Kill Me is the first oral history of the most nihilist of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Danny Fields, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcom McLaren, Jim Carroll, and scores of other famous and infamous punk figures lend their voices to this definitive account of that outrageous, explosive era. From its origins in the twilight years of Andy Warholand#8217;s New York reign to its last gasps as eighties corporate rock, the phenomenon known as punk is scrutinized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there and who made it happen.

A definitive guide to a special time in music. A pleasure to read, insightful and true - speaking as someone who was there.

Gritty, raw, realistic, and at times insanely funny. This book by far paints a vivid portrait of the New York and London punk rock scenes of the 1970s and 1980s. You won't be disappointed by the depictions and personal memories asserted by some of the world's most famous punk rock artists and their associates, including David Bowie, Richard Hell, Jerry Nolan, Nico, Iggy Pop, and The Ramones, just to name a few. This book should be read by everyone, whether you're a fan of punk music or not.
