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.

Review:

'Oh Viv Albertine! I salute you. Such honesty!.' Source: Nigella Lawson

'A brutally honest book about the blood, guts, sweat and tears that went into becoming a woman in the seventies.' Author: Helen Brown Source: Sunday Telegraph

'Viv Albertine, I love your book VERY badly. It's amazing.' Source: Caitlin Moran

'[Albertine's] voice is important in the back story of women in British rock, but she is now as original and interesting an entertainer in words as in music.' Source: The Times

'Both a bold chronicle of her personal ups and downs and a historical document that blows holes in the established punk narrative in which men are the major players and women merely window dressing.' Author: Fiona Sturges Source: Independent

'The Slits were perhaps the most subversive group of all ... Their adventures, musical and otherwise, are at the heart of this searingly honest memoir.' Author: Sean O'Hagan Source: Observer

'Explicit, traumatic and moving in equal measure.' Source: Mojo

'Funny, rude, tender and superbly written.' Author: Ian Thomson Source: Spectator

'A terrific read ... Gripping and moving.' Author: Ian Rankin Source: Guardian

'A story of femaleness, of feminism and of a fascinating life, which show Albertine to be a memoirist of great skill, wit and humour ... Albertine is a natural writer, and this story soars in her hands, shaking off the rock-biog cliches.' Author: Sinead Gleeson Source: Irish Times

Book Description:

The story of a life lived unscripted, told from the heart.
