The image of Jordan with her white shards of beehive and Mondrian make-up is one of the most iconic in pop culture. From the counter of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood's taboo-busting shop on 240 King's Road, she helped shape a revolution. But who was the woman behind it all? How did a ballet-mad girl from Sussex make her way, via the clandestine gay clubs of Brighton and London, to the eye of punk's storm? What happened after she shared so many hair-raising adventures with the Sex Pistols, Adam and his Ants, Derek Jarman and Andy Warhol - and then just disappeared? With commentary from key players and close friends including Vivienne Westwood, Paul Cook, Marco Pirroni, Holly Johnson, and her partner behind the SEX counter, Michael Collins - plus a wealth of never-before-seen images - Jordan reveals her outrageous life story. Buckle up for a masterclass in true punk spirit.

Övrig information

Icon, muse, catalyst and the most recognisable female face of punk, Jordan was described as the first Sex Pistol by Derek Jarman, Jon Savage and those who dared to walk up to 430 Kings Road from 1975-81. The public face of SEX, Seditionaries and World's End; the motivating force behind Jubilee and the first manager of The Ants are just some of her achievements. Cathi Unsworth has written six pop-cultural noir novels, That Old Black Magic, Without The Moon, Weirdo, Bad Penny Blues, The Singer and The Not Knowing. She started out on Sounds and has since written for Bizarre, Fortean Times, Financial Times, The Guardian, Mojo and Sight & Sound.
