Situation Vacant: The Sex Pistols & Malcolm McLaren


  • Situation Vacant uncovers the London known to the Sex Pistols and their agent provocateur manager Malcolm McLaren
  • Nurtured at addresses across the dirty old town – from art schools, dead-end schools, borstals, boutiques and nightclubs to pubs, squats and seedy Soho dives – they were all born and bred in the capital, as was McLaren
  • Comprising two large fold-out maps, this guide celebrates the fact that we all got more than they bargained for: Punk Rock, a once-in-a-lifetime youth movement that engulfed the world but remains at its dark heart a London thing. Meanwhile McLaren’s London life, from arrest for burning the Stars & Stripes in Grosvenor Square in the mid-60s to his inflammatory candidacy for Mayor of London in 2000, is charted with his own map showing how he used the city as a weapon of sex, style and subversion
