There seemed to be a whole passage of time missing. He was working with bands in the 1980s and then ... he was dying. I guess that was because the publication was timed to celebrate McLaren's life after his demise?
It's an easy read...and I guess it doesn't really go into to much depth about the man behind the mayhem.
For that I would recommend The Wicked Ways of Malcolm McLaren...various versions exist...but this has more depth more input I feel.
Anyway...a pretty good read....but....oh I have to be an anorak...Adam Ant was the bass player in Bazooka Joe (Pre Antz)...he is referred to several times as the singer
of that band.
There is a heavy emphasis on the Pistols era..and I guess this is what he was most "Infamous" for ...his later works seem to skimmed over really.
He was quite influential with Duck Rock and Madame Butterfly stuff..ok he wasn't a musician...but I guess the ideas man.
I'm no intellectual...so all the Situationist stuff is over my head...perhaps I should get another book....and get an education
Also got this a while back Impresario: Malcolm McLaren and the British New Wave and if you want to find out more ...it's all good
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
I didn't really enjoy the Author's style of writing. Any time someone of interest,crossed paths with McLaren, the Author would would write great detail about this person... and should that person be connected with someone of interest then the Author would write about them. It became very confusing and, while it showed how influential McLaren was, and how he was there at the beginning... it made it less clear.
If you are interested in the Sex Pistols then this book should be one to read. If you would like to know about Malcolm McLaren then this may be one to miss.
