Viv Albertine, former guitarist of legendary punk band The Slits, spoke at an event with music journalist Jon Savage at the British Library's Punk exhibition, Punk 1976-78, and made some important corrections to the museum's male-dominated exhibition signage along the way. Taking issue with the exhibition's erasure of women's contribution to the Punk movement, she crossed out the names of The Sex Pistols, The Clash, and The Buzzcocks on the exhibition's introductory signage, writing in "The Slits, X-Ray Spex, Siouxsie & The Banshees. (What about the women!!)" and signing her name. You can see her corrections documented on Twitter below, and if you are now completely convinced that Viv is your mom, you should immediately a copy of her righteous memoir, Clothes, Clothes, Clothes, Music, Music, Music, Boys, Boys, Boys. God save the queen.
