Click to preview A Basement On The Edge Of Soho: Paperback pocket and trade book

This is the second book in the Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity series.

First edition softback. Limited to 100 copies.

"Around seventeen years ago I stumbled upon a semi-hidden world which only truly came alive well after midnight and which existed in the heart of London.

"It was a place and time inhabited by characters who could have tumbled from films of their own making, a sideways glance at a reimagined indefinable past; a world of modern day spivs, foot-high quiffs, lizard skin-lined cars, tooting saxophones, unlicensed speakeasies and sharp suits.

"More than a decade later I began to revisit my old haunts and companions.

"The Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity series of books was the result, which this book is part of; a tribute to this world where I spent some of my youth and also a photographic soundtrack to the imaginary film it inspired and which has played behind my eyes ever since - an attempt to capture my own particular Soho of the mind.

"This book is a snapshot of this world on one night in a tiny basement on the edge of Soho in the summer 2010.

"It features Jake Vegas Monkey's Uncle Exotique Cabaret accompanied by the exotic Ms Luna Rosa and Ms Paloma Faith (who positively roared on this night, nice to see).

"In some ways it is the EP to the Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity LP.

"And what a fine little 45 it is."

Alongside making the Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity books I've had something of an eclectic work life, mostly in and around left-of centre pop culture. This has included: 1) Running and designing independent/subcultural clothing labels which were featured in everything from Vogue to Skin Two and worn by a curious selection of folk from Naomi Campbell to Dee Dee Ramone 2) Being the co-proprietor of the Last Chance Saloon shop/gallery, which included exhibitions by Billy Childish, Vince Ray, Coop and Frank Kozik and a group show featuring work by Shepard Fairy, Banksy and Pete Fowler. 3) Putting on the club nights/music events Sound Effects and Home Taping Is Killing Music, which included appearances by Ladytron, Peaches, Adult., Chicks On Speed and The Cramps. 4) Making merchandise/websites/photography for all kinds of creative folk including Holly Golightly, Radiohead and Terry Edwards.
