Review: Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk (An Evergreen book)

User Review  - Steven - Goodreads

I really enjoyed the structure of this book. Quotes and stories from those involved. The problem is that if you don't already know the history of punk music and aren't already familiar with those that formed part of it, than it's easy to get lost. Not a beginner's guide to punk. Read full review

User Review  - Andrew Hull - Goodreads

Interesting read if you're into knowing more about how the punk scene evolved in New York in the 70's. Kinda disappointed that the London scene was barely touched on though. Maybe a bit more input from groupies and nobodies than I would have liked, I dunno. Read full review

User Review  - Michael Waehner - Goodreads
