Situation Vacant: The Sex Pistols and Malcolm McLaren in LondonHerb Lester
Pre-order! Ships week beginning 17 May 2021.
Forty-five years ago, on 24 April 1976, the Pistols and McLaren gained their first substantial national media coverage in the form of an explosive double-page spread in music weekly Sounds.
This guide comprises two annotated maps that celebrate 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-1960s 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.
Written by Paul Gorman, author of The Life & Times of Malcolm McLaren. Paperback published summer 2021 by Constable.
