Viv Albertine: A Review of Two Memoirs by Jane McChrystal.

According to her latest memoir, To Throw away Unopened, Viv Albertine is very, very angry.  Her first, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys opens with the story of how she joined girl band The Slits in the late 1970’s with Ari Up, Tessa Pollitt and Palmolive to make music in the same riotous spirit of amateurism as their punk brothers, the Sex Pistols.
