What became of the lumpen hippies and juvenile delinquents in the mugshots below? They were brought to our attention by Gillian McCain – and, boy, do I recommend her story of the New York punk scene, Please Kill Me, a cracking tale of the ‘vein-puncturing style of the Blank Generation’.
Take a look below and wonder: a) what they’re on?; b) if they ever looked better?; c) was ‘Sandra J Loser’ her real name?
