We are delighted to announce our involvement and support of Portsmouth Bookfest this year! And what a way to kick it off, with the legendary Viv Albertine in store.

Viv will chat candidly (of course if you’ve read the book)  about her life, thoughts on the music industry and memories of being part of the beginning of the ‘Punk’ movement.

We’ll also be selling pie and our superb of small batch coffee, loose leaf tea and temperance cordials. So make a date with Viv!


The Songwriter and musician Viv Albertine was the guitarist in the hugely influential female punk band The Slits. A confidante of the Sex Pistols and the Clash, Viv was a key player in British punk culture. Alongside The Slits, she collaborated with numerous musicians, including Adrian Sherwood, before marking out a career in television and film production.

After a hiatus of twenty five years, Viv’s first solo album, The Vermillion Border, was released in 2012 to great critical acclaim.

Her recent memoir Clothes, Music, Boys was the Rough Trade book of the year for 2014: A raw, thrilling story of life on the frontiers and a candid account of Viv’s life postpunk, taking in a career in film, the pain of IVF, illness and divorce and the triumph of making music again, Clothes, Music, Boys is a remarkable memoir.

Viv will be talking about her life at Pie&Vinyl.
