"Just open your ears and follow your nose" Denmark Street








   Cross rail, slowly strangling the London landscape but hey, making it much more easier to get from one  mindless shopping mall to another. Denmark Street, where once my Dad's band bought a load of Fender guitars courtesy of Decca and Larry Parnes. The Kinks even wrote a song about the place Denmark Street . Let's hope it survives the chop, here's a Facebook page with more details.

It's a shame about Sister Ray





Sister Ray has actually moved across the street, it was at one point further down Berwick St and Select-a-disc used to be here and If I remember rightly it was featured on the 2nd Oasis album cover.

Werwolves of Camden







  A few more photos from Camden Town. I think I was about 17 when I first went to the Barfly, possibly a Flying Medallions gig. However I did get to see Heave and Sona Fariq there on numerous occasions. Oh, and they had a great club night on a Saturday, circa 1990s. I spent many an entertaining evening jumping around to a soundtrack of Love, Velvet Underground and Beck all washed down with super sonics (Gin and Tonic). Good times. There's a funny scene in the Madness film  Take It Or Leave It which involves Chalk Farm station. If you're a nostalgia buff then the film is a great time capsule to late 70s early 80s Camden.
Okay, enough of the old days time to jump back into 2015.
