A star-studded cast of characters, artists, underground reporters, and entrepreneurial groupies give first-hand backstage accounts of the drugs, sex, and power struggles that permeate the punk community to chronicle the emergence of punk music in New York's underground. 25,000 first printing. Tour.
Though Britain's notorious Sex Pistols shoved punk rock into the face of mainstream America, the movement was already brewing in the U.S. in the 1960s with bands like the Velvet Underground and Iggy and the Stooges. Through hundreds of interviews with forgotten bands as well as the ones that made names for themselves--including Blondie and the Ramones--Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain chronicle punk rock history through the people who really lived it. Please Kill Me is a thrash down memory lane for those hip to punk's early years and an enlightening history lesson for youngsters interested in the origins of modern "alternative" music.About the Author:
Legs McNeil is responsible for naming the movement 'punk' and is the author of Yuppie like Me. Gillian McCain is a published poet and a former editor of the Poetry Project Newsletter.
