    Inner City Life - Goldie.

    Eta Post does not make much without the video from a few pages back. Here it is under the spoiler.

    Have been listening to the full length 21 minute version of this this morning. Still an amazing track with its internal 'Pressure' and 'Jah' segments.

    Well now, I was always told that Inner City Life was a mixture of Hackney and Elephant, but there's a comment on the youtube vid that points it to being the Wyndham and Comber Estate (which would make it South East sides)...


    I'm trying to work out if these are at 0.06?

    Spooky... Huey has dropped it just now on his 6Music show. Still sounds so damn good, as does Two Sides :cool:

    looks to me like pretty much the whole thing was filmed on the Wyndham estate (i lived in one of those towers about 25 years ago).

    there are towers the same or very similar in rotherhithe and wandsworth (i think), but the other surroundings are also familiar to me

    <<sarf london nostalgia :facepalm:>>

    This has a little bit of mid nineties London skylines in it.

    I always liked the apartment in this video too, complete with cat and Fender rhodes piano.

    I have seen him in a load of music press but not heard him until now.
    I expected him to sound like a posh pre pubescent teen. Quite a surprise.

    I'm pretty sure the new pixies video ends in the foot tunnel under the Thames at Greenwich.
    the rest of the underpasses are too anonymous to tell but there's something of the way it curves..
    I can't find any information yet to back this up except it
    'stars innovative British dance/theatre/performance artist Nando Messias.'

    That image is definitely from the Nightingale, and comes from here:

    The estate was home to Rush FM in the 1990s. See:
