Malcolm McLaren's son to hold 'punk bonfire'

Malcolm McLaren\'s son to hold \'punk bonfire\'

In what must be one of the most ironically stage-managed punk acts of the year, the son of punk pioneers Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood is set to burn a pile of memorabilia thought to be worth somewhere between £5m and £10m at a secret site in London tomorrow night.

Joe Corre, who has already burnt one of his original Sex Pistols records (to the horror of some punk fans) is protesting about the commercialisation of the movement, that many credit this father with helping to start 40 years ago.

Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of Anarchy in the U.K and official Year Zero birthday celebrations have been supported this year by lottery funds, museums and the mayor of London, much to Joe's chagrin.

He said: “The Queen giving 2016, the Year of Punk, her official blessing is the most frightening thing I’ve ever heard."

He added that, having been "appropriated by the mainstream" punk has become a "museum piece or a tribute act”.

The well promoted burning (with accompanying press release) will be streamed live on the official website tomorrow night.

What could be more punk than that hey?
