Viv Albertine’s Memoirs to Be Adapted for Television

Based on the former Slits member’s two books: Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys. and To Throw Away Unopened

Karlsen, Woolley, and Horovitz added: “What an exciting and exhilarating prospect to re-explore a time when music, fashion, political ideologies and sexuality were turned on their heads. So beautifully evoked alongside personal insights and frank reflections of an extraordinary woman’s life in Albertine’s two incredible memoirs.”

Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys. focused on Albertine’s experiences as a part of the 1970s punk scene in London, where she made history as a guitarist for the Slits, while also befriending members of the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and more. To Throw Away Unopened delves more into the author’s family relationships and personal life.
