Playlist 3 May

Mickey Bradley | 12:40 UK time, Friday, 4 May 2012

The Ghost of Malcom McLaren hovers over tonight's show. John Lydon's first blow for artistic (and later financial) freedom from old Talcy Malcy is still the best thing he ever did outside of the Sex Pistols. Not being a Sky subscriber I missed his interview with Laurie Taylor. Was it any good ? Please tell me. Also tonight, Malcolm's second attempt at shocking the Great British Public, Bow Wow Wow. He wouldn't get away with it today, putting a fourteen year old girl in a band and getting her to sing songs about sex. Musically it's great, of course although I don't think it excuses him.
