Linder Sterling's work had its first exposure in the punk fanzine The Secret Public and as art for the sleeve of the Buzzcocks' first single, "Orgasm Addict." Soon she had her own band, Ludus, founded with Ian Divine. Her visuals and her performances have remained legendary in the musical world--for example, a costume consisting of raw meat and a black vibrator, worn for a special evening at the Hacienda--but these formative contributions to the aesthetics of punk and its offshoots have only recently received wider recognition. With no clear academic career path, without institutional or curatorial support, Linder has continued to make multidisciplinary work, work that has led observers to call her the missing link between Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin. This first book, a rediscovery and a debut at once, includes contributions from writers and cultural figures including Philip Hoare, Jon Savage, Andrew Renton, Lynne Tillman, Paul Bailey and Morrissey.
