By Kris Needs and Dick Porter

During the first half of the 1970s, the New York Dolls established a hard-earned reputation as the last word in rock'n'roll hedonism, leaving a trail of magnificent destruction in their wake. Combining the attitude of the Rolling Stones, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent with the romanticism of 1960s girl groups like the Shangri-Las and Crystals, the Dolls formulated the unlikely template for punk rock. Trash! recounts the full drug-fuelled story of the band, from their origins amidst the street gangs of New York's outer boroughs, through to their contemporary re-birth and the recent death of bassist Arthur Kane. Featuring a wealth of original interview material, the complete saga of the band is presented in all its sleaze-encrusted glory.
