Situation Vacant: The Sex Pistols and Malcolm McLaren in London

Regular price £12.00

Situation Vacant uncovers the London known to the Sex Pistols and their agent provocateur manager Malcolm McLaren.

Nurtured at addresses across the dirty old town – from art schools, dead-end schools, borstals, boutiques and nightclubs to pubs, squats and seedy Soho dives – they were all born and bred in the capital, as was McLaren.

Comprising two large fold-out maps, this guide celebrates the fact that we all got more than they bargained for: Punk Rock, a once-in-a-lifetime youth movement that engulfed the world but remains at its dark heart a London thing.

Meanwhile McLaren’s London life, from arrest for burning the Stars & Stripes in Grosvenor Square in the mid-60s to his inflammatory candidacy for Mayor of London in 2000, is charted with his own map showing how he used the city as a weapon of sex, style and subversion.
