Vintage Smash Hits - Malcolm McLaren Cover (January 6-19, 1983) 


This is just further proof that the late Malcolm McLaren was a true visionary of this music game. Read this article (from 1983, almost 30 years ago). The stuff he's talking about: the DIY culture of home DJ's, producers and consumers taking control of their music and remixing & remaking it in any fashion they want has all come to pass in this current internet era of music. Mash-up and remix culture is exactly what Mclaren was envisioing when he want to New York and made the cut-up, scratch hip hop classic, "Buffalo Gals."

Download the January 6-19, 1983 'All-Star Request Issue' of Smash Hits with McLaren on the cover HERE [pdf file] or HERE [individual jpegs].

Rest in Peace, Malcolm - you will be missed....
