British music and cultural icon Malcolm McLaren made a trip to Beijing last week to work on his latest project - The Wild Strawberries, a band consisting of four Chinese 20-something women that claim to play punk/grunge. The impresario behind the Sex Pistols helped them record their first English song. 'I was not only helping them with the song, I showed them about punk music, and taught them about chip music.' Malcolm's latest fascination, low-fi chip music - basically, the music that comes out of a video game machine - seemed to be lost on the girls, but he has confidence the concept will find a wider audience. Our dinner table conversation spanned many eras and media, from music to fashion (he was formerly married to fashion designer Vivienne Westwood) to film (his latest movie project includes Jack Black). He tells of a man that came up to him in London's Groucho Club and thanked him for making him a very rich man. It turns out that he was a safety pin manufacturer in the 1970s when the punk movement, driven by the Sex Pistols, took off. Times may have changed, but Malcolm's passion remains. The wheel turns, and Malcolm manages to reinvent himself once again.
