The Funniest, Grossest And Most Lurid Stories From Ace Music Memoir 'Please Kill Me'
Please Kill Me, the oral history of punk written by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain, was published 20 years ago this year. It's credited as the book that popularised the oral history format, but, more than that, it's an essential read for anyone with even the slightest interest in the movement. Featuring interviews with punk's most important characters, from Lou Reed and Patti Smith to Iggy Pop and Richard Hell, it's full of hilarious, lurid and sometimes downright disgusting anecdotes from the much-glorified period. via NME
