Månedens Uttalelse kommer nok helt sikkert i forbindelse med Månedens Bortgang. I følge MOJO uttaler nemlig selveste hip-hopkongen Afrika Bambaataa om sin nære venn og rockens svar på Lille Lord Fauntleroy (som Johnny Rotten kalte ham ved flere anledninger):
"On behalf of Afrika Bambaataa, the Universal Zulu Nation and myself, we kiss the ground that Malcolm McLaren walked on and cherish the gift that he gave us; the whole punk rock scene which inspired all hip hop. He was one of the true godfathers".
Her er forresten en fin oppsummering fra begravelsen, også fra MOJO, med klare respektnikk til Ánde Somby:
"The minute his coffin - daubed 'Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die' - was taken out of the church at One Marylebone, all hell broke loose. I'd been expecting to hear some Sex Pistols' tracks - MM kick-started punk and so much more - but the sheer volume of Anarchy In The UK as the church doors opened knocked me for six. Inside we'd already witnessed a Norwegian tribal singer screaming the house down (min uthevelse), a boys' choir and tap-dancer doing a surreal You Need Hands, McLaren's girlfriend Young Kim in tears and Westwood being heckled and, at one point, almost shouted down by former Clash manager Bernard Rhodes (who did, however, end by praising McLaren). It was the perfect anarchist rock'n'roll funeral service. But the best was yet to come..."
Kanskje til og med noen flere oppdager "Duck Rock". RIP, Malcolm.
