  1. There are certain albums that are out there that I feel there is a great need to write or talk or read about Without a doubt Richard Hell and the Voidoid s amazing Blank Generation album is one of them First of all, I always love the Richard Hell everything I love is two novels that s floating out there in various bookstores around the world, and I m crazy about the marks he left on NYC culture Him, Tom Verlaine and all of Television , New York Dolls, Patti Smith, The Ramones, and even some of t [...]


  2. Another of the wonderful little books from Bloomsbury in their 33 1 3 series that offer in depth analysis and review of classic and historically important records, Blank Generation by Pete Astor is a gem Filled with many behind the scenes facts that went into the recording of what to my mind and apparently Astor s as well is one of the most creative, inspiring, energizing and liberating album to come out of what was labelled punk Or, as Astor s opening puts it Richard Hell was the one for me Fir [...]

  5. Enjoyed it Gives me what I d most want from books in this series which is a straightforward, not overly jargoned or overly complicated, mix of points about the album from perspectives including music theory, technical facts about recording, album s cultural context and personal significance to the writer.


  6. mixing personal history with many interesting facts about Richard Hell, and Blank Generation, this is one volume that s worth checking out.




  7. Excellent and scholarly discourse on the history of Richard Hell as a poet, lyricist, musician, and aesthete but without being boring or pedantic.
