Like a wake, but louder

Punk progenitor McLaren's funeral will include a "minute of mayhem"

Malcolm McLaren, whose pop culture career included stints as a clothing boutique owner and as manager of the Sex Pistols—to whom he played the role of occasional ego, occasional id—died earlier this month. According to his son, his funeral will be conducted in such a way as to reflect the way McLaren lived. “In celebration of Malcolm’s life we are asking people to observe a MINUTE OF MAYHEM at midday on 22nd April. Put on your favorite records and let it RIP!”
