Amazing if a little cliche.
Malcolm McClaran seems to have been England's version of America's Andy Warhol.
This guy Richard Hell lit the fuse in the 1970s and McClaren ran back to the UK with it and gave it to the Sex Pistols. The fire that was punk was nowhere like it in the world compared to it's impact in the UK, and to a certain extent Europe. It has had latent influence on many music genres, worldwide.
Let's not forget the punk afterbirth that took place in the early 1990s in the US, with bands such as Sonic Youth; we gained the 'Seattle sound' out of that and ultimately grunge, which rippled worldwide too, influencing in turn the UK.
