To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of ‘Please Kill Me’, they’re releasing a special edition of the book, including new chapters, photos, and afterward by Legs and Gillian. The new edition will be released in May, alongside an amazing two hour NPR special hosted by Michael Des Barres, featuring original clips from the interviews that went into making the book.
By Todd McGovern - No one epitomized the melding of music and art that took place in downtown Manhattan of the 1970s and early 1980s more than John Lurie. He didn’t so much burst onto the scene as help create the scene itself. To this day, John Lurie escapes categorization – Lurie is a self-taught musician, painter, actor, director and storyteller.
From the PKM Archive - This is Part 2 of one of the first interviews I did with Legs for Please Kill Me and I was really nervous. Debbie Harry! We met at the Moonstruck Diner in Chelsea. She couldn’t have been more gracious. And smart. And funny. - Gillian
by Amy Haben - Sometimes I can't listen to Jonathan Fire*Eater, because the sound is so gorgeous that I feel like my heart is going to explode. I can honestly say that this band is magical. Jonathan Fire*Eater was a huge success in New York City in the 90's as well as having a buzz around the globe. Everyone thought they would be hugely famous, (which they should've been)–especially if you were to judge by each member's talent.
