The Sex Pistols’ debut single “Anarchy in the UK” was released on November 26 1976 and somewhere up there, Johnny Rotten thanks his old’ manager’s son for reminding the world what he was about.
You remember the name Malcolm McLaren – the late Sex Pistols Manager left millions of dollars worth of band memorabilia to his son Joe Corre. Together with his mom, they set fire to all the items down at the River Thames in London UK over the weekend.
The 48-year-old told the crowd that “punk was never meant to be nostalgic”.
The protest was aimed at official plans to celebrate the movement’s 40th anniversary.
Mr Corre said his collection of clothes, posters and other music-related items was worth £5m.
Dummies of former Prime Minister David Cameron, ex-Chancellor George Osborne and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson were among those engulfed in flames as part of the protest, on a boat near the Albert Bridge in Chelsea, London.
Punk London’s planned to celebrate 40 years of Punk through live performances and exhibits.
