Talking as much about the revolution that was the early punk movement as the quirks of the band, Noel Monk (author and American road manager) records the chaotic first and last US tour of the Sex Pistols in almost diary format. Depicting Johnny, Sid and...those other guys...as part young boys and part barely caged monkey (when you wipe your own poo on the wall and break furniture wherever you go, monkey-like is an accurate title) you begin to know the intimate details of the band that you can't see from listening to an album.

Dropped into the machine that was and is the music industry and intent on smashing the anarchist bent of the Sex Pistols' lyrics into the rigorous standards of southern America in the 70's you watch all hell break loose. Much like Monk, the reader can only sit back and watch it all happen, horrified yet not looking away.

Noel E You really got it. Thanks.
