Please Kill Me the Uncensored Oral History Of Punk

Please Kill Me the Uncensored Oral History Of Punk  Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This first oral history of the most nihilistic of all pop movements brings the sound of the punk generation chillingly to life. Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, David Johansen, Dee Dee Ramone, Nico, Patti Smith, Malcolm McLaren, and scores of other famous and infamous punk figures lend their voices to tell the outrageous that bring the punk era to life. From its origins in the twilight years of Andy Warhol's New York reign to its last gasps as eighties mainstream metalmania, the phenomenon that was known as punk is analyzed, criticized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there, and who made it happen. Please Kill Me reads like a fast-paced novel, but the energy it celebrates and the tragedies it contains are all too achingly human, and all too real.

Synopsis:

This is the story of a cultural phenomenon which embraced Andy Warhol, Jim Morrison, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Patti Smith, The Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, and more. Documenting a time of self-destruction and peverse innocence, this text has contributions from both stars and groupies.

Synopsis:

The story of Punk across the whole spectrum, from Andy Warhol's Factory, through Patti Smith, The New York Dolls and Iggy Pop, to The Sex Pistols and The Clash. 16pp b/w illus.
