    Has the launderama on Brixton Road run its last spin cycle?

    Disturbing message seen chalked on the pavement in Acre Lane... Apparently there's another one nearby, but that says 15.

    Apparantly it's a youth led anti-catcalling campaign which launched recently.
    I like it: direct, unapologetic and necessary.

    Absolutely sickening. This is a full page advert in Time Out. No doubt there's similar ones in the Far East. BRX my fucking arse.

    This article is interesting - considering this mass-produced tower shit is normally marketed in the Far East for buy-to-lets
    Property overhang in Penang higher than London's? - anilnetto.com
    "both London and Penang face similar problems: too much of the wrong kind of housing – expensive high-end stuff – and not enough of genuinely affordable housing. Yet, over here our planners are so cool about this mismatch"

    That's more than three minutes walk from Brixton tube. It takes twice as long as that to cross the road outside Superdrug. I'd do 'em for trade descriptions.

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    From the blurb:

    "Nowhere has an energy quite like Brixton. With an abundance of things to do, you can enjoy brunch at Brixton Market, browse independent shops, have dinner and drinks with friends, and dance the night away to blues & rock ’n’ roll music."

    "This is a place to be yourself. Somewhere you can be whatever you like. Become someone new or just discover you. It’s an adventure. It’s wild. It’s a sanctuary and a community. It’s home."

    "There’s nowhere better to start your mornings, end your evenings and fill the hours either side. Nowhere that hosts this kind of hustle and bustle, where cultures clash in the best way possible. Alive and kicking and buzzing with soul."

    "Day or night, night or day. Life is too short to live for the weekend, it should be enjoyed every moment of every day. This is a place to be yourself. Somewhere you can be whatever you like. Become someone new or just discover you. It’s an adventure. It’s wild. It’s a sanctuary and a community. It’s home."

    So fucking awful. Whitewashing the soul of Brixton.

    I doubt that was taken in a Brixton club.
    Clapham's Infernos, perhaps?

    I see the usual suspects are doing their best to trash this thread with their usual childish, bitter, point-scoring, so I'm giving them both a week off this thread. A full ban would actually be deserved because they're both on mutual ignore which means they're breaking the rules with this nonsense, but I'm feeling charitable.

    Yes it did happen at a club I happened to DJ at. It's absolutely not the crowd I like to DJ to but you sometimes don't get a lot of choice, regardless of what music you play. I believe they were Australians on a stag do.

    Of course, I could post up plenty of pictures from the same club night showing a far more diverse 'Brixton' crowd but then I'd be playing their infantile game.

    Yes, indeed it is, but I did find a thread from years ago about the first Rock'n'Roll club in the UK being at The Coach and Horses in Brixton....but I doubt they did any research to establish this...

    It was the Crown & Anchor, but if you ask 100 people what music Brixton is famous for I'm confident the majority wouldn't say 'blues and rock and roll.'

    Google is quite handy for that kind of thing. The answer is yes, btw. £7 admission if you or your friends are keen to go.
