Speaking of punks named Viv.

38) Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys by Viv Albertine. Kindle. 2014. A little difficult to read, as all truly honest books are. The Slits are just one thing that happened to her in a life full of emotional struggle and incident, but she's good on the sights, sounds and smells of all your favourite punk rockers. Difficulty conceiving, cancer, grown up issues are the heart of the book. Her passion really flies off the page as she rediscovers herself amidst a collapsing marriage in Hastings, picking the guitar back up. Written in an immediate present tense with occasional italicised editorialising from the present day. A triumphant book, human and real.
I haven't read it yet. Would you say it worth considering for a unit (i.e., three-hour discussion) on punk and women?
I would, with the proviso that, as I've said, the Slits only take up as much a percentage of the book as they did Viv's life. A couple questions it might raise for a seminar would be

A) to what extent does punk's claim to be egalitarian between sexes borne out by the behaviour of the young men in the bands?

B) What is a punk attitude and how does it manifest for a woman over 40?
Okay, thanks very much. I'll give it a quick read this summer.
A Clash fan should read it for her take on Bernie's insane behaviour at McLaren's funeral.
But I might have to read that immediately.
Also be aware that she describes Lydon's penis as "crispy."
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if she was talking about the actual texture, or just that it was salty like a crisp.
