I first read this book, a Toronto Public Library copy, in 2010 as I went through a 'punk' phase... a re-exploration of the whole punk movement.

Like many folk, I was very familiar with the UK punk wave ― I'm a "Sex Pistols" fan ― but I had not realized that Canada was a force. Bands in/from Vancouver and Toronto, for instance, were the real deal.

Treat Me Like Dirt is required reading at the academy. (I later discovered that author Worth was only in her mid-twenties when she published her history.)
