”Please Kill Me,” named after a T-shirt once worn by a member of Television, doesn’t have much to say about the music itself. 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.
Constructed as an oral history, the book weaves together personal accounts by the crucial players in the scene, many of whom seem to have been so drugged out most of the time that their reliability is questionable. McNeil and McCain provide a vivid look at the volatile and needy personalities who created punk if they do not offer perceptive musical or cultural analysis.
This shirt is a great gift idea for self and loved ones! It comes in a variety of colors and premium quality.
