Malcolm McLaren was the instigator of punk rock in the UK. As 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 story. Unlike most autobiographies 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. It crackles off the page with verve and energy. 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.
