I love this book. I've read it twice now and in some respects reading it the 2nd time was the more enriching experience. I saw the Slits on the White Riot tour in 1977 at Bristol Colston Hall. They were pioneers in sound and attitude and along with others like Siouxsie, X Ray Spex, & Penetration, helped smashed opened the doors for females within the music industry. Viv's telling of this time is riveting and brought back a lot of great memories and her story of coming back to making music on her own terms 25 years later is utterly inspiring. Nice one, Viv. We could definitely do with more artists around today with the attitude that The Slits had.
