    Alty & Levy are standard Mcr school slang. Sounds a bit daft when you're a grown up, but it's authentic enough. Abbreviation suited old-fashioned graffiti that had to be carved into desks & train doors with a compass. 'Manny' sounds odd to me, but the youngsters are all over it currently.

    Yeah not wise knocking the local slang when I've just moved here. :oops:

    Odd random query today, while walking down Tib Street. A short-ish chap asks me if I know where 'Brass Hat' is. I said no, because I'd never heard of. He then elaborated and said it was 'the shagging place' while doing that fist pump thing with both arms by his side, presumably to simulate thrusting.

    I was quite perturbed that he thought I would know where the local knocking shop was. :D

    Walked past that tons of times but never ventured in. Always assumed it was more a shop so you'd get the hard sell if you just went to have a look at stuff.

    Nope, you were free to browse unimpeded, no pressure. We bought a few things.

    Nah, places like that put me on edge. Give me impersonal institutions any day of the week.

    It was just people sat at a sales desk and either posters in racks or art on the wall. Framer downstairs. No hassle at all. Hopefully they set up somewhere else.
