Back in the garage with my bullshit detector

I have had an amazing time in London. Finally saw the Churchill war rooms – a real War Room! – and it was quite amazing. Did a punk rock tour of Soho, went to Camden Town with my old high school pal Lee Hill, and tonight I am finally seeing the real Sham 69, with Jimmy Pursey!

Here’s a shot Lee snapped when we were in Camden. Anybody recognize where I was?

    Wherever they took the pic for the first Clash album cover.

    Strangely enough, I am working my way through a podcast about the 1001 albums you must listen to before you die and today I am listening to the show about the Clash’s first album. They discuss the cover.


  3. Warren,

    I hope you have the time of your life in the UK! And when you get back, you’ll meet that perfect someone who will mirror your own true feelings and not wear a mask or fake front in love. My God, life is such a teaching experience but in the end happiness is the ultimate result.

    • Warren says:

      Thanks brother. I hope you’re right.

      • Pipes says:

        Of course he’s right. The Sun always comes up! We all, from time-to-time have to wade through the darkness and in the end it’s always the wait.

        I think the photo is not as much where it is, as what it represents. If were you, I would turn around and start the climb………safe travels.

    I’ll take “one time residence of Charles Dickens” for 500, Mr. Kinsella….

    When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford. -Samuel Johnson.

    From your description, I suspect you aint in the least bit tired..,…

    London is an amazing city. I partied my ass off for 9 nights straight the first time I was in London. And yes, the War Rooms are very cool.

    .. great shot ! That’s ‘a keeper’

    Deserves a nice archival print
    in the 8×10 realm .. with slime white border
    ideally printed from ‘native camera file’
    (identical Copy file re Resolution & Pixel Size)

    Hope you picked up dinner & drinks
    for the shooter.. haha..

    PS.. arrange too, some extra copies
    we know you has family eh ..
    That would be a good ‘play eh !’

  7. the salamander says:

    slim border .. not slime ..
    abject apologies ..

  8. TS,

    At my age, I even screw it up after proof reading…

    Such is life, I suppose.
