‘Acme Attractions’ tells the story of the infamous London clothing store on King’s Road, a hangout for scenesters and punk rockers in the 1970s. The story is told by British music industry legend Don Letts and Jeannette Lee, co-owner of Rough Trade Records, an iconic label within the British music industry. Having both worked at Acme, they regale about the dog-days of glam and punk, through a conversation that is warm, intelligent, and compelling. The pair found themselves simultaneously experiencing the pleasures and pitfalls of youth, touching on revolutionary feelings as fashion, politics, music, and art were all re-made in real time, during a now-legendary period in the capital’s history.
