If you're a fan of oral history and the interview format, even if you have no current interest in punk and New York in the 60s/70s, you'll love this collection of stories about the beginnings of an entire musical genre. The personalities interviewed and described in this book seem too eccentric to be real - in the best possible way.

A simply indispensable book about punk rock and it's milieu, if you ever vaguely thought that it mattered. And. Fascinating.

This book only proves that punk is not just an attitude, but a movement worthy of documentation. Highly recommended.

I'm a sonic reducer, I ain't no loser.

Among other things in "Please Kill Me," you'll learn about those charming fellows in the Dead Boys.
