Legs McNeil, Gillian McCain: Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk (1996)

15 October 2013, dusan

“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.”

    Just wondering why you are giving away a fairly recent book that is still available at Amazon and local bookstores for a fair price?

    Have the authors/publishers agreed to this?

    Well, to honour their work, hopefully.
