Sex and punishment - four thousand years of judging desire by Berkowitz, Eric.

Sex and punishment - four thousand years of judging desire

At any given point in history some forms of sex were condoned while others were punished mercilessly.

Sick on you - the disastrous story of the Hollywood Brats, the greatest band you've never heard of

With only a guitar, a tatty copy of the Melody Maker, and his template for the perfect band, Andrew Matheson set out, in 1971, to make music history. His band, the Hollywood Brats, were pre-punk prophets--uncompromising, ultrathin, wild, and untamable. Thrown into the crazy world of the 1970s London music scene, the Brats recorded one genius-but-ignored album and ultimately fell foul of the crooks who ran a music industry that just wasn't quite ready for the punk revolution.
