R.I.P.

We saw some of his films at Art Basel: Miami (2009) and he was still an interesting cat; making art and causing trouble.

conceptually, yes

I seen him a few years ago on The Baron, where he was running for position as The Baron ( the mayor) of a tiny shithole in Scotland.
The whole town was extreme wee free christian lunatics. He got on stage and said " God is a sausage" and was run out of town. They were going to kill him. He came last. He called stuff like that Situationist, i just thought it was fucking hilarious. Skip in Peace

A friend of mine was wondering after seeing a picture of Malcolm why band managers always look so "straight." Obviously she's not familiar with his full-bondage-suit antics in The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle; unzipping the mouthpiece to talk about his invention "the punk rock" and things. Rocked a whole bunch of "Duck For The Oyster" yesterday in protest. RIP Malcolm

I am indeed laughing now; no idea what you're on about but, uh, thank you?!

I kick myself REALLY hard now for not buying that book on the Situationists years ago; that whole thing was EXACTLY where Malcolm was coming from
Posted: Apr 10, 2010 6:41 am
 
that book on the Situationists

I haven't yet seen a copy, but this new collection looks promising: "The Situationists and the City" by Tom McDonough

Thanks; I'll check that out later. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the particular book I looked at; at Quimby's in Chicago some ten years ago or more, so it's probably no wonder I don't right?! I just remember a lot of collage work and sloganeering that looked to be a direct and pronounced influence on Malcolm and on Jamie Reid's artwork as well

Definitely. I think this has been fairly well documented.

No it wasn't that one; I read that or tried to anyway. More of an art book; not a lot of explanatory text

i'm reading revolution of everyday life by vaneigem. situationism is one of my favorite critical theories. they seemed to want to have a lot more fun than the rest.

No shit. Throwing that book across the room was not nearly satisfying enough. I wanted a chance to throw it at the author.

I'm stumped on what book you saw. I worked in an Art Book store for years, and saw plenty of Situationist-related titles, often with illustrations, but yeah, heavy with text. The Situationist City by Simon Sadler comes to mind. I'm assuming it was in English? I'm sure Quimby's could have imported some small press or gallery item such as described ... now I want one.

The phrase "incoherent rant" comes to mind; I didn't understand where the hell he was trying to go with that and after no more than 50 or 60 pages didn't want to or care either. I enjoy some pretty out-there/ non-linear/ abstract things, but not when it comes to nonfiction. Greil Marcus has a whole stack of "cultural history" books like that doesn't he?!

I shouldn't have mentioned the Situationist book; get mad at myself for not remembering useful details about things and yet here I go. Sorry about that.

guy debord society of the spectacle is the start... though not necessarily "fun" reading.

also andre breton Nadja, second manifesto of surrealism...

instead of reading the situationist books, let's just put 'em up on the internetz so everybody's web browser can find them.

agreed, but some of the shit in there is mind blowing.

YES!

(BBC) The family of punk impresario Malcolm McLaren have asked mourners to observe a "minute of mayhem" ahead of his funeral on Thursday.

McLaren's son, Joseph Corre, said fans should crank up their stereos with raucous music at midday on 22 April "in celebration of Malcolm's life".

"Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!" he added.

The funeral is expected to take place in Highgate Cemetery after a procession through London.

The cortege will be led through the streets of Camden, including Camden High Street and Chalk Farm Road.

Fans are being encouraged to pay their respects along the route, but McLaren's family have asked for privacy at the cemetery.

The music mogul died from mesothelioma, a rare cancer which is most commonly associated with exposure to asbestos, in a Swiss clinic earlier this month.

He was renowned for managing punk provocateurs The Sex Pistols, as well as his own musical projects in the 1980s.

Corre, whose mother is fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, announced the funeral plans on his charity website, Humanade.

McLaren's family have asked that donations be made to the charity, which fights human rights abuses, in place of floral tributes.

I broke out my copy of "fans" 'cuz of this thread. Malcolm Mclaren had puffy areolas.

Oh yeah, I've been saying that "god is a sausage" line to the people I work with. They're religious and all, but yet they agree with me when I say it.
