'Minute of mayhem' for Malcolm McLaren
Malcolm McLaren's funeral will include a "minute of mayhem".
The late punk manager and counter culture figure - who died from Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, earlier this month - will be celebrated with an open procession through part of London before he is laid to rest on Thursday (22.04.10) and his son has encouraged the public to pay their respects by causing chaos.
Posting on the website of his charity, Humanade, Joseph Corre, told of plans for a 'Minute of Mayhem' - an alternative to the traditional minute of silence - in celebration of his father
He wrote: "In celebration of Malcolm's life we are asking people to observe a MINUTE OF MAYHEM at midday on 22nd April. Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!"
The public funeral procession will take place through the area of Camden High Street from 1:15pm and end at Highgate ceremony, where Malcolm will be laid to rest in a private ceremony.
Ben - who is one of the founders of lingerie company Agent Provocateur - has also released a special T-shirt to commemorate the former Sex Pistols manager's life through Humanade.
The shirt features the slogan 'Cash From Chaos' and is modelled on a similar T-shirt worn by Malcolm in his spoof film 'The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle' during a section where he performs a version of Max Bygraves' song 'You Need Hands', which was filmed at Highgate cemetery.
All proceeds from the T-shirt will go to Humanade.Posted on 19 Apr 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
