We'd gone in search of the American Apparel dream

Camden, March 2017.  I was hoping to pop into the only UK American Apparel, but to quote Skepta, it was shutdown. Now that the indie-scene seems to have split, I don't have much call to visit Camden these days. Here's an interesting article by Hannah Ewens for Vice about Camden and yep, you've guessed it, it's soon to be gentrified. No doubt I'll revisit the NW1 patch before this happens but for the time being here's how the old girl looks today.

It's where you're at, NW1

The Monarch, the Barfly and now the Camden Assembly. Let's hope this place survives.

Many a 90s night spent at Club Royale, Monarch

Mind the gap. Salut for now Camden
