MALCOLM McLAREN: Swamp Thing (Charisma)

Id like to see Malcolm talk his way out of this one. Snatches of The Troggs “Wild Thing”, Billy Joels “Just The Way You Are”, a Jane Fonda-type work-out, rapped versions of Bow Wow Wows “Sexy Eiffel Towers”, and “Baby On Mars” interspersed with chunks of “Soweto” and “Buffalo Gals”. And its all mega-mixed together with hip hop rhythms, ethnic beats and Malcolms inimitable sense of humour. Trick or treat? Both actually. (9 out of 10)
