SUNDAY TIMES MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR
ROUGH TRADE BOOK OF THE YEAR
MOJO BOOK OF THE YEAR

In 1975, Viv Albertine was obsessed with music but it never occurred to her she could be in a band as she couldn't play an instrument and she'd never seen a girl play electric guitar.

A year later, she was the guitarist in the hugely influential all-girl band the Slits, who fearlessly took on the male-dominated music scene and became part of a movement that changed music.

A raw, thrilling story of life on the frontiers and a candid account of Viv's life post-punk - taking in a career in film, the pain of IVF, illness and divorce and the triumph of making music again - Clothes Music Boys is a remarkable memoir.

What a great book.
I've always been glad The Slits existed, even if I never bought a record.
Viv Albertine is fab - and she had sex with all the boys I fancied from (very) afar.
I love her grit and... More

“Contains boos and taboos and I was wooed”

With short chapters (some just two pages in length), I read with pleasure and passion, Viv's taut recollections. This does not fade fast. It blooms!
