Malcolm McLaren was the instigator of punk rock and the creator of the Sex Pistols. He orchestrated a movement that has reverberated through the years and changed the face of music, fashion and style. In 1980, he asked music writer Barry Cain to help with his autobiography. Unlike most – written 40 years after the events this was written at the time with McLaren at his anarchic peak, riding high on his reputation as a pop svengali and media manipulator. It crackles off the page with verve, energy humour and bawdiness. This is his story told in his own way from his unconventional upbringing to his assault on a cosy music business that would never be the same again. Unique!
