Illustrated with black and white photographs (of The New York Dolls, Poly Styrene, Johnny Thunders, and others). Constituted of equal parts passionate absolutism, blatant self-aggrandizement in the classic music-journalist style, and gratuitous personal insults directed at any and all subjects. Burchill, still in her late teens at the time of publication, was already an NME staff writer along with Parsons. An essential text.
