Singer Chrissie Hynde has been criticised after saying women who dress proactively were to blame if they were the victim of sexual assault.

The last 35 weren't filled with nothing, says Hynde
Chrissie Hynde might be best known for her work with The Pretenders. And that’s hardly surprising considering she released nine albums with the band. But that doesn’t mean the singer wants to stand on stage and belt out old classics during her solo shows.

Most of the literature and documentaries on punk tend to start out in the same place, talking about how in the mid-1970s music had become this bloated, big-business monster, with pretentious arena rock bands playing 20-minute solos and so on - and then came The Ramones to shatter all that. Letts - a former producer and icon in the scene, as well as director of the authoritative documentary on The Clash, Westway to the World - digs deeper than that, going back to the 1960s and early '70s, finding the root of the coming musical uprising not just in expected places like The Velvet Underground, MC5, and Iggy Pop, but also in the jaggedly poppy sounds of many now mostly forgotten garage bands (whose sound is still inspiring post-punkers like The Hives).
