Viv Albertine

1 Feb 2014

One of punk’s true originals, Viv Albertine talks to award-winning journalist Simon Price about a life lived on the frontiers of experience. From forming the band The Flowers of Romance with Sid Vicious to iconic status as a member of the female punk group The Slits, Viv’s new memoir, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music.

Boys, Boys, Boys, reveals what it was like to be a girl at the height of punk – the sex, the drugs, the guys, the tours – through the eyes of one of the most glamorous, uncompromising and iconic figures of the time.
