Ms. Albertine's book is wiry and cogent and fearless.… Her book has an honest, lo-fi grace. If it were better written, it would be worse. (Dwight Garner, The New York Times)

Forget Katniss And Tris - Viv Albertine Is Your New Hero. (

A fully realized portrait of its author. (Rolling Stone, "10 Best Music Books of 2014")

A memoir full of raw and uncompromising anecdote and opinion, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys is an unflinching account of a life lived on the frontiers of experience, by a true pioneer." (#1 on the "Books of the Year 2014 (Rough Trade)

If you love this music, then this book is fascinating and essential. If not, it's fascinating and inspiring. It's occasionally coarse, and often terribly funny and fun. (, Amazon Book of the Month Featured Debut)

This honest, defiant book from the Slits' guitarist is a lesson in how to look back from middle age…no self-aggrandisement, but occasionally a quiet, defiant pride in her achievements. The list of which, I am delighted to note from her latest music, continues to grow. (The Guardian (UK))

[A] blazing, rueful memoir. (Greil Marcus for

Viv Albertine's tell-all is a razor-edged self-portrait...Shot through with humor, pathos, and sheer strength of will, Albertine tells of finding early influences in Captain Beefheart and John Lennon, going to art school with on-and-off lover Mick Jones and a nascent Adam Ant, and forming the Flowers of Romance with Sid Vicious, all before pivotally teaming up with the Slits....The book is a testament to Albertine's unbending passion for music that's uplifting and heartbreaking in equal measure. (Pitchfork, "2014 Gift Guide")

The best rock memoir by some distance of 2014 wasn't written by a big name such as John Lydon or Bernard Sumner but by Viv Albertine. (The Guardian, "The Best Music Books of 2014")

Crammed with wicked observations and keen memories -- especially what and whom she was wearing throughout her fashion-obsessed life -- Albertine's book is sharp and quick-witted. She knows her way around a sentence and exudes confidence. Like singer Marianne Faithfull's revelatory autobiography Faithfull which detailed her life as a '60s 'It' girl, Rolling Stones muse, junkie and chanteuse, Albertine throughout the decades questions assumptions of femininity, propriety and creativity. (The Los Angeles Times)

An extraordinarily candid chronicle…even the most casual fans will find it a captivating and very personal account of an artist's life, of overcoming the self-doubt that lingers even in the face of artistic triumph. (Future of Music Coalition, "Our Favorite Music Books of 2014")

A profoundly unsparing and affectionate memoir… I haven't seen anything that captures the different sides of punks so well… there is an enormous tenderness to Albertine's memoir…Clothes is as great as the music was and deserves a place on the shelf beside London Calling. (Bookforum)

The Slits guitarist chronicles what it was like to live through punk's first wave. 57 Books to Read This Fall, Fall Preview Feature (New York Magazine)

Funny, sad, and evocative. (Sunday Times, "Pop Music Book of the Year" (UK))

A frank and fearless account of sex, drugs and life on the cultural frontline. (Esquire Weekly)

[A] bold, empowering work. (Publishers Weekly)

Viv from the get-go was fabulous, exciting, cool and inarguably integral to the history of punk. Her book, an eyewitness account of love, chaos and reflection, is a gender slashing, guitar smashing report from the radical front. (Thurston Moore)

I saw Viv Albertine of The Slits…How do I feel? Lucky….I realized I hadn't really witnessed fearlessness in a long time, at least not at a rock show. As one of my friends put it, more succinctly: 'This was one of the punkest things I have ever seen.' (Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) reviewing Viv Albertine show in Brooklyn for NPR Music in 2009)

Oh @viv_albertine I salute you. Such honesty! (Nigella Lawson on Twitter)

Viv Albertine was a member of all-female punk band The Slits. That's a fascinating stroy in itself, but her upbringing and, more importantly, her frank and visceral style make this a really gripping read. Shocking and enjoyable. (The Bookseller (A Top 5 Monthly Bookseller Choice for June))

While we see the world through Albertine's eyes, it's the rare, raw, glimpse into the birth of punk that makes this book so relevant…. Hearing the story from a woman's point of view makes for very interesting reading… The pace is sharp and punchy, just like punk lyrics… Rarely can a book be so personal yet still resonate with a whole movement--and beyond. (Stylist Magazine (UK))

[Albertine's] book is both a bold chronicle of her personal ups and downs and a historical document that blows holes in the established punk narrative in which men are the major players and women merely window dressing. (The Independent (UK))

'With a title that is an incantation and a picture of the gorgeous author on its cover, Viv Albertine's autobiography is quite something. It promises a punk snog'n'tell, but is a real tease: strident, uncertain, compelling, with a structure that jerks all over the place via snapshots of Albertine's life. This is maddening and magnificent all at the same time. (Suzanne Moore, The Guardian (UK))

Unflinching, candid, revelatory: the perils of being a pioneer. (Jon Savage, award-winning author of England's Dreaming: Anarchy, Sex Pistols, Punk Rock, and Beyond)

A brutally honest book about the blood, guts, sweat and tears that went into becoming a woman in the Seventies. You don't need to be a fan of the Slits or even punk to be gripped from the off (The Telegraph (UK))

Her voice is important in the back story of women in British rock, but she is now as original and interesting an entertainer in words as in music. (The Times (UK)) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Nicht gänzlich unbeleckt von dem ganzen alten Punk Kram sitzt (saß..?) in mir eigentlich die Idee, dass es dazu nichts mehr zu sagen gibt, alle Fakten, alle Dinge sind gesagt, interessiert da der soundsovielte Wiederkäu oder gar die Vorstellung einer dräuenden weiteren Autobiografie, deren Bereicherung, vielleicht mit Ausnahme gealterter Fantruppen, eher der Käsetheke des Literaturbetriebes zu Gute kommt? Mich nicht! Niemals hätte ich das Buch gekauft. Zufälligerweise -d.h. glücklicherweise- verfing ich mich zum Jahresende dann in dem Interview in MOJO 254, geführt honoris causa mit der Autorin, was durchscheinen ließ, dass hier nicht nur autobiografische Details ausgebreitet werden sondern auch eine aufregende Story erzählt wird. Und genau das ist es, womit mich das Buch total überrascht hat. Gleich in der Einleitung geht die Autorin auf die in mir nagenden Bedenken ein. Das ist OK so. Und dann weiter: eine absolut lebendige, interessante Story, in einer frisch-fromm-fröhlich-freien Sprache (fromm steht hier nur wegen des Zitats) daherkommend, die Höhen und Tiefen ihres Lebens erzählend, eine Narration die mich zunehmend in den Bann geschlagen hat und, dass ein untrügliches Zeichen, mich das Buch gar nicht mehr aus der Hand hat legen lassen. Ach ja, auch die Faktenfresser werden in dem Buch bestimmt was zu entdecken haben!

Entertaining, moving, sad, amusing, profound 24. Mai 2014
Von Tim Jones - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Here's what I tweeted when I finished the book:

"Finished superb memoir #clothesmusicboys by @viv_albertine last night. Wonderful book - entertaining, moving, sad, amusing, profound"

And I don't need to say a lot more - it was really was that good. Viv Albertine was the guitarist of iconic 1970s English punk band The Slits. When that band broke up, she disappeared into a marriage in which her creativity wasted away. This is the story of how she got to that point and how she resumed her creative life after 25 years' obscurity. It's also the story of some very bad (and some very good) choices, taken with a fierce commitment to independence, and the emotional price she has had to pay for that independence.

Along the way, there are fascinating portraits of Sid Vicious, John Lydon, Mick Jones, Ari Up and many other famous figures of the punk era; unexpected connections with musicians and actors as diverse as Steve Howe of Yes and Tom Hiddleston; and the voice of a fine storyteller. This is, so far, my favourite book of 2014.

Love, love, love this book! (to ape the title a bit) 26. November 2014
Von Kathy Kiernan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A wonderful book on so many levels--an inside look at the creation of punk; wildly interesting portraits of friends such as Johnny Thunders, Sid Vicious, and Mick Jones (who comes off as a sweetheart--wish he'd write a book too); ordinary stuff about what it's like to be a woman, but told in such an appealing, signature way; and a message that there are second acts in life (and third and fourth acts too--Albertine's intriguing performance in the Joanna Hogg film Exhibition led me to this book). I loved this so much I even put it down for a day, to postpone the painful inevitability of having no more Viv Albertine words to read. And her hilariously described Vincent Gallo encounter is just priceless icing on the cake.

Really great read 13. Dezember 2014
Von linda - Muskegon, MI - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Can't say what possessed me to purchase this book??? I had never heard of Viv Albertine or The Slits. I didn't listen to punk rock. However, I found this book captivating. The honesty of it all. Congratulations Viv!! I'm a fairly avid reader and would recommend this book to most anyone who can keep an open mind. The book created some type of cathartic experience for me.

Best autobiography I've ever read 2. Januar 2015
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
In the non-stop stream of celebrity autobiographies available, Viv Albertine’s Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys is in a class by itself. Eschewing the standard form of chronicling events in long, wistful chapters of excess, Albertine goes for short entries of brilliance. The woman knows how to write, crafting observant and blunt bits of streetwise prose to describe the many mini-moments that make up this great book.

The gangs all here; sex, drugs, rock and roll, but that’s only a part of it. After the days of punk ,The Slits, and notoriety had faded, Albertine tackled the next stage of her life, one in which she tried to have something approaching normalcy, only to find herself beset by a host of physical maladies which left her an empty and depressed shell of the renegade she once was. It’s in this second half of the book that the reader is jettisoned from appreciative fan to empathetic confidant, a powerful transformation to be certain.

Throughout her tale, the author is relentlessly, brutally, and heartbreakingly honest. It’s easily the most intimate autobiography I’ve read, one in which the reader isn’t just consuming the sterile recounting of actions, but rather becoming enmeshed in a spellbinding, painful, and wry confessional. It’s essentially linear, but has some disjointed chapters that seem to have no purpose save to give you one more anecdote or life observation. I can best compare it to a long conversation with someone wherein the drinks or drugs flow, the talk rambles, and nobody is bored. Hers is a story as unique as she, but it’s her ability to unflinchingly express the raw innermost thoughts she was experiencing during those moments that make this book so special, so personal, and so endearing.

The book is an easy read, told in two parts, mirroring the two very different eras of her life. By the end of the book, I had fallen so utterly and completely in love with this woman, that she’s ruined every other woman forever. Beneath the stunningly beautiful woman is an intelligent, thoughtful, courageous, and utterly absorbing person who I wish I had the privilege of truly calling my friend. This book will have to suffice.

A Perfect Account of a Woman in Music 2. Januar 2015
Von Britta - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read countless band stories, from individual accounts to collective memoirs, but have never read anything so moving or sincere as this work by Viv Albertine. I didn't really know what to expect, but took the plunge and purchased the book anyway. I was blown away by the fully engaging and entertaining recollection of Viv's past and present. It was an entertaining, informative, emotional, and addictive read. Her account of relationships, shows, life events, and general interaction with others was so detailed and humble. Completely believable and easy to relate to, none of the self indulgent attitude you so often encounter with these types of books- she really didn't leave out any embarrassing details which was so refreshing. I couldn't put it down and devoured the book in its entirety in one day. I only longed for more of her story once it came to an end. Also to be appreciated is the very thorough list of clothes, music, and boys from each (very well mapped out) era of her life. Don't hesitate to read this.. if you're on the fence, just go ahead and purchase. You will not be disappointed.
