From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jordan (born Pamela Rooke on 23 June 1955 in Seaford, East Sussex), is a model and actress noted for her work with Vivienne Westwood and the SEX boutique in the Kings Road area of London in the mid-1970s.

She was a fixture at many of the early Sex Pistols performances. Her style and fashion sense — a platinum-blonde bouffant hairdo with dark raccoon-like eye make-up — made her a highly visible icon of the London punk subculture. In the late 1970s, she briefly dated singer Adam Ant and served as the manager for Ant's band Adam and the Ants. She recorded several tracks as a guest vocalist with the band for BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel's Peel Sessions.

She made a cameo appearance in Derek Jarman's debut film, Sebastiane and played the lead role in his follow-up film Jubilee, as the punk "anti-historian" Amyl Nitrate. She can also be seen in The Great Rock and Roll Swindle wearing an "only anarchists are pretty" t-shirt.

Jordan now works as a veterinary nurse and breeds Burmese cats.
