Saturday Special: A Tribute to Malcolm McLaren
Written by Chris on April 14, 2010
Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Malcolm McLaren had his fingers in many of the most important pies of late 20th century popular music. From The New York Dolls to The Sex Pistols, from Bow Wow Wow to Buffalo Gals, McLaren was there, usually courting controversy. McLaren died last week and in tribute American DJ and record producer DJ Premier put together a tribute mixtape. Featuring music from McLaren’s own records and those of bands he produced and managed, along with typically self-aggrandizing interview excerpts, this is a great mix. Waiheke Radio will be playing DJ Premier’s Malcom McLaren Tribute Mix Saturday 17 April at 9pm, just before our dance music show Up The Doof.
