BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
“Double Dutch” is a 1983 single by Malcolm McLaren. It is taken from his debut album Duck Rock. “Double Dutch” is the follow-up to his successful debut single, “Buffalo Gals”, and reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, making it his highest-charting single release. The album version is a slight re-edit of the single, with part of the original middle eight moved to the end of the track.
Mbaqanga group The Boyoyo Boys took legal action against Mclaren over the similarity of “Double Dutch” with their own hit “Puleng”. After a lengthy legal battle in the UK the matter was settled out of court, with payment made to the South African copyright holders, songwriter Petrus Maneli and publisher Gallo Music, but Horn and Mclaren retained their songwriting credits.
