Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs

by John Lydon - £14.99  Plexus Publishing Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780859653411 | ISBN 10: 0859653412

Punk has been romanticised and embalmed on TV, in books and on the catwalk. An English youth revolt that became a world-wide fashion statement, punk’s idols were the Sex Pistols, and Johnny Rotten was its sneering antichrist.
 
Seventeen years later, John Lydon (aka Rotten) looks back at himself, the Pistols and the ‘no future’ disaffection of their time. More than just a music book, Rotten is a history of punk: angry, witty, poignant and crackling with energy.
 
Malcolm McClaren, Sid Vicious, Chrissie Hynde, Billy Idol, the Britain of the late ‘70s, the Pistols’ creation and collapse – all are here, in perhaps the best book ever written about youth culture, by one of its most notorious figures.
