They were both 18. The results of these, and subsequent sessions, are lavishly produced in their black-and-white glory in Destroy, picturing the most charismatic band of all time at their wild-eyed, royalty-baiting, chaos-inducing best.-BizarreDestroy is a photographic account of the 12 months leading up to the groups burn-out, freeze-framing each shell-shocked band member. The minutiae is irresistible: timely Gang of Four graffiti on a toilet wall, Vivienne Westwood already old enough to know better- a young Richard Branson looking like a displaced member of The Eagles. Its appeal should reach beyond the nostalgists to those eager to discover more about a watershed year in popular music.-Q
