You never heard? Malcolm MacLaren owned a fetishwear shop and fancied himself a band manager. He held auditions and put together an act which he dubbed the Sex Pistols.

Jesse: I agree with most of what you said, but just for the sake of accurcy...

Steve Jones and Paul Cook already had a bassist when Malcolm said he would manage them. THey tried out Johnny and a band was formed. Yes, Malcom pushed them in some directions in the beginning but they really weren't like the spice girls. They were not four random people who were hand picked to be in a band or anything.

Secondly, Malcom did nothing with the music. The band wrote all the music and Johnny wrote all the lyrics. Johnny, and to a lesser degree the band, also did their own anti-fashion thing. It is ture that Malcom exploited this with his shop, but he was not succesfull in making them wear specfic clothes or what not... he just aped their style in his store.

All the stuff that made the sex pistols great, like their killer lyrics ("we are the flowers in your dustbin, we are the poison in your human machine"), were not of Malcoms doing.
