"I want them to see how often you have to fail to be anything in life. I think young men and boys are taught to fail. It's nothing to them; they do sport, they fall over, they shout: 'I'm all right,' and carry on. But with girls they're so appallingly embarrassed to fail, it's like it's considered unfeminine."
It's the second half of the book, dealing with Albertine's life after punk, that elevates it beyond most music memoirs. It opens with the curious interlude when, poleaxed by the waning of punk and the demise of the Slits, Albertine gave up music and became, of all things, an aerobics instructor. Frankly, if this happened in a novel, it would seem like a spectacularly heavy-handed metaphor for the 70s turning into the 80s but, today, Albertine has a way of talking about aerobics that somehow makes it sound like an extension of the Slits' agenda: "It was so exciting, girls moving their bodies. Before the early 80s, the only times girls moved their bodies was doing hockey or whatever at school, which everyone tried to get out of. This was really liberating: a sweaty room, packed with women, throwing their bodies around, sweating, looking dirty, no makeup."
