Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"Much has been written about the Sex Pistols. Much of it has either been sensationalism or journalistic psychobabble. The rest has been mere spite. This book is as close to the truth as one can get ... This means contradictions and insults have not been edited, and neither have the compliments, if any. I have no time for lies or fantasy, and neither should you. Enjoy or die."

So writes author John Lydon, a.k.a. Johnny Rotten, in his introduction to the book Rotten, an oral history of punk: angry, honest, and crackling with energy. Seventies punk has been romanticized by the media and the up-and-coming punk bands of today, but the sneering, leering disaffection of that time has been lost. Now, Lydon candidly and at times, dare we say it, fondly looks back at himself, the Sex Pistols, and the "no future" attitude of the time. Rolling Stone calls Lydon a "pavement philosopher whose Dickensian roots blossom with Joycean color," and the San Francisco Chronicle calls Rotten an "invaluable [book] ... sheds welcome light on that short period of great music and spasmodic cultural change."

Bollocks you say? Read, sneer, and enjoy or die.

"Enjoy or die" stellt uns John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) am Anfang seiner Autobiografie zur Wahl. Wer sich entschließt es zu wagen, der wird sicher auch seinen Spaß an dem Buch finden. Ich jedenfalls habe das Buch gerne gelesen. Was ich gehört habe, plant John ein weiteres Buch, um die PiL Jahre ebenfalls abzudecken. Schon jetzt bin ich darauf gespannt.

Doch zurück zu diesem Buch hier. Es beschreibt interessant das Leben in der Arbeiterklasse in England zur Punk-Zeit. Und nicht nur John kommt hier zu Wort mit seiner ehrlichen, manchmal witzig-ironischen Art und manchmal bissig. Er lässt auch andere Leute aus der Zeit sprechen, Freunde, Bekannte und seinen Vater. Mancheiner mag bedauern, dass recht wenig über Sid (und Nancy) zu lesen ist, allerdings ist dieses Buch auch nicht über die beiden, sondern von und über John. Interessant außerdem Auszüge von Aussagen verschiedenster Leute von der Gerichtsverhandlung gegen den Manager Malcolm McLaren. Danach mehr denn je verstand ich, warum John einen derartigen Hass auf ihn hat. Die Verhandlung scheint mir ein einziger (schlechter) Witz. Wo McLaren selbst sich als fähig und guter Manager beschreibt, sagen andere wiederum über die Zeit der Amerika Tour aus, dass McLaren nicht zu finden, nicht anwesend zu kritischen Zeiten war und Vermutungen, er hätte regelrechte Angst vor den Pistols gehabt, scheinen mir durchaus glaubwürdig.

Mir hat gefallen, dass John eine einfache Sprache benutzt, wodurch auch Deutsche mit guten Englischkenntnissen durchaus in der Lage sind das Original zu lesen (wie ich es tat).

At long last, John Lydon (aka, Johnny Rotten) has opened up, nearly twenty years later. The Sex Pistols remain one of my favorite bands, and Johnny Rotten one of the more interesting media figures in the pop culture, so I devoured this book. It combines first-person accounts of all sorts of punk notables and wannabes, and the observations of Lydon himself, co-written by Keith and Kent Zimmerman. I'll admit a bias up front - so much of the history of punk has been obfuscated, I value anything that comes along. I was eight at the time the Sex Pistols did their thing, and I remember being scared when I heard the names "Johnny Rotten" and "Sid Vicious" - I didn't know who they were, but they seemed scary names (and remember, this was before MTV), and the radios weren't playing them - they were phantoms and boogeymen, and all the adults seemed scared of them. I remember when I was a teenager, finally buying their album, and thinking, "What's the big deal? This music rocks!"
I'm glad to see some light shed on this period by one of the people at the center of the media storm. Lydon fills the book with tart observations - he retains his spite and anger and seems as volatile as ever. At the same time, I feel like he's pulling one over on the rest of us. Some of his recollections seem contradictory - perhaps very real to him, but everybody knows that one's perception of things changes over time. There's a subjective quality to this account that makes me long for corroboration. Some of the first-person commentary does back up Rotten's assertions, but I get the feeling there's impression management occurring (check out Goffman's "Impression Management" and you'll know what I'm talking about).

Unfortunately, with all of the hype concerning the infamous Sex Pistols, their rapid rise and just as rapid decline and break-up, people have a tendency to forgot about the people involved in the band. Although Johnny Rotten is probably the most well-known member of the Pistols (I say probably because Sid Vicious is, quite possibly, more well-known), he is often seen as little more than a "punk rock" icon. In this book, he sets it straight, as he sees it. It is an incredibly good read, and Lydon (his real last name) is brutally honest about his home life, his childhood, his inclusion into the Pistols and the breakup and demise of the Pistols. The book is, at times, depressing, touching and upsetting, but it is always entertaining and, surprisingly, incredibly funny. Lydon is a very witty guy, and he holds nothing back in this autobio. Definately recommend for anyone interested in the man, the Pistols or punk in general.

I read this book cover-to-cover without reading anything else during that brief time, and this was during a final exam period in law school. I was 12 years old and living in London when I first saw the Pistols on Top of the Pops, and the image made deep and profound impression on me and my brother. The book cleared up a lot of misconceptions I had about the band and particularly about Lydon and McLaren. It made Lydon more 3-dimensional character in my mind and made me realize what an interesting study he is, not just as a rock icon, but as a person. It also made me realize that "The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle" movie was little more than an exercise in low-budget self-aggrandizement by Malcolm McLaren. Apparently, Lydon is in possession of no less than 250 hours of film footage of the Pistols to which he won legal rights. I desperately hope he puts his talents to work in producing something from this archive in the not too distant future. The book left me with the desire to meet the man some day and have a talk over a pint (I'll buy, and I won't feel cheated). The book feels brutally honest, and is consequently painful to read at times, but I would urge anyone who feels permanently affected by the Pistols era to read it. It makes you realize how, had the creativity and imagination of the sheep-like public not been so limited, a movement sparked by a piece of rare art and originality might not have been snuffed out before it had a chance to catch fire.
