Once ground zero for edgy pop poetics, narcotic inspiration and velvet collar lock-ins, the strip of hallowed tarmac now offers a bewildering and dispiriting range of replica red buses, plastic Union Flag bowler hats and sundry BritainPLC tat.

Channeling the former – The Carnabys, live at The Garage.
