Hold-Up Review in Rolling Stone France

Badly Translated:

Murders, robberies, heroin and rock’n’roll:
the polar cocktail that kills!

La sélection noire
de Philippe Blanchet.

In the late 70′s, Patrick was a roadie for Dead 
Kennedys and road manager for Flipper, one of the 
best punk bands of the San Francisco Bay Area. 
He was a roadie, but mostly an addict. Fifteen years later, 
he’s robbing banks and supermarkets, and playing Sid & 
Nancy with his girlfriend Jenny, while surviving two 
overdoses …
Patrick O’Neil recounts this long journey punctuated 
by lightning discharges of adrenaline. A nightmare-like 
creepy thriller: his life. Brutal!
