Following the death of Malcolm McLaren the Godfather of Punk puts his musical life into context. The Death of punk and moving forward to the start of the New Romantics with Bow Wow Wow and Adam & The Ants. The start of Hip Hop which he describes as 'Black Punk'. Meeting Afrika Bambaata and cutting the Buffalo Girls track. The invention of cds and cd compilations. The growth in technology leading to Club Culture, Chip Music, Video games and the abuse of the interenet. Looking like your straight counterpart - referencing Madonna and 'Vogue-ing'. 'Authenticity and Karaoke'. How it turns out that the bankers in the uk were the biggest punks of them all. 2008 was the end to the culture of desires.
