BOOK OF THE WEEK. ‘ROTTEN: NO IRISH * NO BLACKS * NO DOGS’
PUNK has been romanticised and embalmed by the media. A youth revolt that became a worldwide fashion statement.
Punk’s idols were the Sex Pistols – and Johnny Rotten was its sneering antichrist. ‘Rotten’ is a history of punk: angry, witty, poignant and crackling with energy.
Malcolm McLaren, Sid Vicious, the 1970s, the Pistols story are all here, in one of the best books ever written about youth culture, by one of its most notorious figures.
