Abbey Road

Trying to get your picture taken on ‘that’ zebra crossing on Abbey Road is pretty hard to do during the day. I saw plenty of irate taxi drivers yesterday ‘beeping’ excited tourists as they held up traffic and tried to get perfect the open-legged gate of the Fab Four from 8 August 1969.

Record Store Day

Happy Record Store Day! I hope some of you have managed to get out and snag some vinyl from your ‘wants’ list. Twitter is full of great photos of passionate music fans up with the birds, standing in a queue. Controversially, for the first time in four or five years I haven’t got up early this time around but will be heading down to Flashback in Islington a bit later on, in the knowledge that I will have exactly zero chance of picking up an a-ha picture disc or any of the David Bowie items. Can’t complain though, because I’ve been lucky enough to get some items to preview as you may have noticed during this week.
