This is the kind of funeral every goth and punk dreams of when they cuddle into their totally ironic Disney Princess sheets at night. British punk legend Malcolm McClaren’s funeral procession went through London today and it was an extravagant spectacle. You wouldn’t expect anything less.
Malcolm’s graffitied coffin (Hot Topic BETTER NOT make a purse version of it) was carried in a carriage pulled by some fancy goth horses. The procession also included a bus filled with zombie punks. Malcolm’s ex-partner Vivienne Westwood, Pam Hogg, Adam Ant and Bobby Gillepsie all came out to mourn their friend.
Malcolm’s family issued this statement shortly before his funeral:
“In celebration of Malcolm’s life we are asking people to observe a MINUTE OF MAYHEM at midday on 22nd April. Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!”
And if your “favorite record” includes anything by Ke$ha or Justin Beiber, RIP it up and throw it in your desktop trash immediately. Then excuse yourself from the room and go eat your sandwich in the bathroom by yourself. That’s what Malcolm would’ve wanted.
