Gillian McCain, co-author of the contemporary American classic Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, will be signing the book to celebrate 20 years since its release. A Time Out and New York Daily News Best Book of the Year when it came out in 1996, PLEASE KILL ME is a genuine cult book, published in 12 languages and in print for 20 years.
Here are scores of famous and infamous punks who lent their voices to chronicle a musical revolution and social history, including lggy Pop, Richard Hell, Patti Smith, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcolm McLaren, Jim Carroll, Debbie Harry, Lou Reed and many more. From its origins in Andy Warhol's New York to its last gasps as eighties corporate rock, the phenomenon that was known as punk is analyzed, criticized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there, and who made it happen.
And in keeping with the evening James Meynell presenter of the Soho Garage Show on Soho Radio will DJ a range of selections from the New York and London scenes 1967-1982.
