Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

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.

Whether punk to you is Iggy Pop rolling on broken glass or the ignoble death of Sid Vicious, this is the book that takes you into the wild, whacked and hilarious world of people "having fun killing themselves" as the book jack describes. The inspiring part of the book is in the fact that most of these bands were talentless and awful when they started and someone told them to just do whatever and they just did whatever without a market survey or executive telling them what would sell. The hilarious parts are teh stories of people sometimes basically clueless and singleminded in their need to offend (I recall Robert Asheton's (sic) wearing of an SS uniform at Iggy Pop's wedding when the bride, the groom and most of the people there were Jewish) There are oral sex scenes on stage, messed up rock stars trashing things and Iggy Pop collapsing over and over again. Other artists who aren't "punk" per se also lend their voices and stories including the Warhol factory and Patti Smith as well as Jim Carrol (by the way, the writers really really hate Lou Reed. They tend to love to put Lou Reed is a creep stories into the mix)
Ultimately many of these stories have been told many times in many different ways (see Miles Davis' autobiography for the dangerous lives of jazz musicians) but in punk there was a revelry to the danger that let the audience in on the evil lives and flaunted the wild lifestyle more than anything. Punk is both a music genre and a self-destructive/seductive lifestyle and this book captures that perfectly.

I was a bit skeptical about reading this book, that it would be some no-brainer attempt at defining punk rock. I mean, how do you define punk rock? You can't...but "Please Kill Me" does a great job of showing the birth of punk and its growth. There's not as much vomit and nose-picking as you might think (leave that to the Sex Pistols), this book clearly displays the ultimate brilliance of the young musicians, artists, ruffians, etc. of punk. Their self expression is amazing and fearless. So many people today think that punk rock is just a bunch of noise that lazy, anti-social kids produce to annoy elders. Not so. This book gives great examples of how punk-founders such as Lou Reed, Iggy PoP, Stiv Bators, Johnny Thunders, David Bowie (and so many others) crafted music that not only made a statement but sounded (and still sounds)unbelievable. The authors bring us first-hand to Warhol's Factory during the late '60's to Detroit with the MC5 and the Stooges, and back to New York clubs like Max's and the legendary CBGB's (omfug). The book's format is set up like that of a play, with each "character" describing what he or she saw first hand. The stories are unbelievable, wonderful, and gruesome. This book goes out on a limb to bring the real stories to light. Ever wonder if Sid really killed Nancy? You'll hear what really happened from the people who where actually there the night it happened. What was Lou Reed really like? Who was gay and who was straight in the world of punk rock? What were the attitudes like? Were all of the rockers pigs? McNeil and McCain do a great job of answering these questions, among several others. You get so close that you can almost smell the dope in Iggy's pocket. I'd definitely recommend reading this book, you won't be disappointed.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

This is by far one of the best books I've read about punk or music in general. Told by the people who lived it, Please Kill Me is a compilation of years and years of interviews with almost everyone who was even remotely involved in the punk scene from the sixties through the eighties. This book starts off with the MC-5 and the Stooges, goes through the Andy Warhol and David Bowie period, through the New York Dolls, the beginning of the New York punk scene, the explosion of the English punk scene and keeps on going in. Read the TRUE story behind Dee Dee Ramone's infamous "53rd and 3rd", who Sid Vicious' friends think REALLY killed Nancy (AND who they think killed Sid!) and the story behind the break-up of the New York Dolls. Since its all told by the original scene members, this book is filled with great anecdotes that other punk "history" books would never be able to get. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is at all interested in early punk - especially early New York area punk.

The book tells the story itself. The book is not just a punk diary, it explains the psychology of a time and a place when it was cool to wither and waste away -- that's where it gets its name. The author does nothing but put quotations in an order to tell a story. It goes from the Velvet Underground to Iggy Pop to the Dead Boys to Blondie. Very well done and fun to read, not to mention great pics. This is the best punk history book I've ever seen, and very detailed. If you want to learn about punk -- this is where to get your edumahkashun.:)
