Malcolm McLaren & The Bootzilla Orchestra – Waltz Darling (Vinyl LP)

waltzmontage From 1989 and the bewildering mix of classical music and (for the time) electronic dance music from the late, great Malcolm Mclaren. Smoothly produced and bulging with ideas this was greeted with mixed reactions from the critics. Mostly female vocals lead the tracks with guest musicians such as Bootsy Collins, Jeff Beck and remixers Mark Moore and William Orbit get some time to develop the tracks.  Some of its lyrics are to fashion, possibly as a result of McLaren’s relationship with designer Vivienne Westwood. The last track is a cracker and it went down well with fans of the Balearic dance scene.

One thought on “Malcolm McLaren & The Bootzilla Orchestra – Waltz Darling (Vinyl LP)”

  1. This album really worked its way into my brain when it was first released – I played quite a few album tracks to the bewildered bogan nightclub crowds when the nights felt they were dragging a little too long
