    Following on from December's 260-post thread, here's the thread for Brixton news in January 2017.

    I wish you all a happy new year - and let's hope it's a better year than the last one.

    If I attempted to create the thread at midnight, it may well emerge in a different language. Jägerrlese or something. :D

    So, the Albert was quite pleasingly not rammed beyond belief, same applies to the Dogstar but the 414 is powering on in style.

    Albert was oddly quiet?

    But all the usuals were in so it was almost like a private party.

    I shoulda done the 414 but my dancing wingman is sick, so her loss, went to see kittyP instead, which was fab.

    Happy New Year, Ed. I don't always agree with you but you do a remarkably fine job particularly controlling recent 'firestorms'.

    Something has happened within vicinity of SW2. Loads of cop cars and some ambulances. Orange rescue helicopter flying over head.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Eek. Saw the helicopter an hour or so ago, must have been the same.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Look like there has either been a stabbing or shooting at the Branksome Rd end of Hayter Rd. Police tent and blood on a front door frame :(

    Just spoken to cops. Stabbing apparently. Victim taken to hospital; sounds like injuries not life-threatening.

    What a shame that the mystery police officer only springs into action when books on African history are on display.

    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    Yesterday there was someone on BBC London Radio, Jo Goodes show talking about doing Bowie themed walks around Brixton soon, linked to the anniversary of his death.

    Apart from the mural, his old house and his school can't imagine what there would be to see.

    I posted about this before. He sent me a press release and told me his three-times weekly walk would involve him singing songs on his guitar and taking paying customers to the Ritzy (I explained that it had nothing to do with Bowie - the celebration took place in Windrush Square), Photofusion (on the tenuous link that Bowie photos were showed there briefly recently) and Pop Brixton (a real WTF choice) as a stop off. I suggested that they'd be better off going to a local cafe instead.

    It's great that the 414 has found favour with young folks again but there's still plenty of older ravers going there. I include myself in that description, obvs :D

    Not really sure what's going on at Jamm these days.

    The information panels on Morley's staircase? (as draped in black ribbon last year) The Aladdin Sane lightening bolt design on the Coldharbour / Atlantic junction?

    can't see that attachment but they are hosting summat called Brixton après this week which is a ski themed thing with street food and a happy hour, just my guess but. reckon they might be trying to appeal to the denizens of oval quarter/ robsart village (sic)who fancy a less musically focussed evening out...the gin thing they did on the terrace last year was a sight to behold

    Jamm has some involvement with the lot who have been doing the Brixton Beach Boulevard stuff over Pope's Road so this very much sounds like one of their ventures.

    didn't know the BBB connection but that sounds pretty much it, the terrace area has been fully decked out with huts and seating for a bit now

    Nour has new higher shelving which makes negotiating the aisles easier. Looks good although staff will have to cope with more requests from shortarses like myself to 'Just reach me one of those on that top shelf'

    I can't work out if this is a new extra-retro billboard for a new Co Op, or a really old one that's been uncovered:

    Where is/was this Co-Op?
