De fringues, de musique et de mecs by Viv Albertine( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Itinéraire d'une véritable enfant du rock, l'autobiographie de Viv Albertine revient sur sa carrière de guitariste dans l'un des tout premiers groupes de punk exclusivement féminin Outre-manche, The Slits. Evocation candide et franche d'un mouvement musical et social qui allait changer l'histoire de la musique, De fringues, de musique et de mecs regorge d'anecdotes sur les Clash, les Sex Pistols, Vivienne Westwood, Johnny Thunders et tant d'autres. Mais ce serait minimiser ce livre féroce et attachant que de le limiter à un énième document rock, car le propos de Viv Albertine va bien plus loin. En retraçant sans tabou ni biais son parcours de gamine de la classe moyenne anglaise des années 70 fascinée par la scène musicale et bien décidée à y faire entrer les filles, puis de jeune femme embarquée dans un mouvement aux excès et au nihilisme affichés, et enfin de femme confrontée au grand vide post-punk qui tente de survivre aux excès, à la maladie, et à l'ennui d'une vie rangée, Viv Albertine livre un texte brûlant d'honnêteté et d'engagement. Choquant parfois, brutalement émouvant par moments et toujours drôle, ce livre est une ode aux femmes, un texte féministe qui regarde en face ce qu'il en a coûté – et ce qu'il en coûte encore – d'être une femme, d'être irrévérencieuse, et d'être têtue au point de croire à son destin."
To throw away unopened by Viv Albertine( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the launch party for her memoir in 2014, Viv Albertine received the news her mother was dying. She left the party immediately and spent a few final hours with a woman who had been an enormous presence and force in her life. In the weeks that followed, Viv was left with the task of sorting through her mother's affairs. In that process she came across one fatally curious item: a bag labelled 'To throw away unopened'. This auspicious moment lies at the heart of Viv Albertine's second book, part memoir, part manifesto, part polemic in which she touches on sex, ageing, feminism (in all its guises) and other conundrums that characterise the 21st century life. It is a bold and unapologetic follow-up to a book which became a sensation by a musician and writer who sits at the heart of the counter-cultural landscape today as a celebrated and feted figure."--

"Viv Albertine llega a Londres en 1958 con cuatro anos, procedente de Sidney. A finales de los setenta, dos encuentros lo cambian todo: conoce a Mick Jones y descubre a Patti Smith. A partir de ahi, se integra en la emergente escena punk y vive en primera linea aquellos anos: los Sex Pistols hay un capitulo dedicado por entero a una mamada a Johnny Rotten, Malcolm McLaren, Vivienne Westwood, los Clash, sus relaciones con los dos reyes de la desmesura Sid Vicious y Johnny Thunders, la formacion del grupo de chicas The Slits, los conciertos salvajes, la heroina, las peleas con skinheads..., hasta que a principios de los ochenta su banda se disuelve. Arranca entonces su nueva vida, con la necesidad de reinventarse, un aborto, una hija, el cancer de cuello de utero, el divorcio tras un largo matrimonio."--Amazon.com
