Malcolm McLaren 22/01/1946 – 08/04/2010

I was just getting tomorrow’s post together when L shouted up the stairs that Malcolm McLaren had died.

A couple of weeks ago I did a post featuring the 12″ mix of Something’s Jumping In Your Shirt and I still can’t believe that up until yesterday when I cut the link it had been downloaded more than twice as many times as the second most downloaded track which is something that I had not been expecting.

Here are 2 tracks which I think of when McLaren’s name is mentioned.

Bow Wow Wow – C30, C60, C90 (which my mate’s older brother had on cassette single)


Malcolm McLaren – Madame Butterfly (from an album that is actually better than I thought it would be)

Mclaren will probably be cutting a deal with auld Nick as I type.

    Says a lot about these times that I heard about it through somebody's Facebook status…

    I love Madame Butterfly. I think the music post Pistols that Mclaren was involved in was better than the Pistols personally.

    However you regard him Genius or Jinx (I veer towards Genius)Pulling the threads of punk together ~ and dressing it: I still wouldn't have the front to wear a Destroy shirt even now), discovered Boy George, reinvented Adam Ant broke Hip Hop in the UK and put world music on a world stage – not a bad run really

    Without him and the Pistols at the Free Trade Hall there would have been no Fall. For that alone I will be eternally grateful to him.

    Whether I agreed or disagreed with him I would always listen to or read what Malcolm McLaren had to say as he had a truly original mind.

    The world's just got even blander without him.

    Anonymous – that is a great statement about the world being blander without him.
