This is a post to mark the sad passing of Malcolm McLaren earlier today aged just 64. Rather than write thousands of words about him I thought I’d just pick a few tunes of bands he managed his own stuff. Enjoy! Goodbye Talcy Malcy. (The BBC obituary of Malcolm is very good, click here to see it)
“Jet Boy” – New York Dolls -McLaren was their manager in the early 70s for a period
“Anarchy For The UK” – Sex Pistols – Malcolm came to prominence by bringing the band together and managing them until their demise in 1978
“C30 C60 C90 Go” – Bow Wow Wow – Malcolm took over as manager of Adam and the Ants and fired Adam, he the brought in Annabella Luwin aged just 14 as the singer
“Double Dutch” – Malcolm McLaren – This song annoys many people I know, but I love it!
“Madame Butterfly” – Malcolm McLaren – I don’t like opera so why do I like this?
