Manor Avenue: The Garden of Dog

I thought you might be interested to know that Brockley has featured yet again in a pop video. The band are Nottingham-based "Dog is Dead" and they released this single, called "River Jordan", last February.

By all accounts this group are actually quite good and earmarked for bigger things. They have just released their first album with Atlantic Records and are about to embark on their first UK tour.

The setting is the inside of the old United Services Club, which we bought last summer. One of the former squatters emailed me the link. The rooms it was filmed in no longer exist after we demolished the big annex at the back, in fact I was mowing the lawn over the very spot yesterday. So I suppose this is more than just a pop video, it is a historical document of our vanishing heritage, or something.
