Petition launched on Change.org to lobby Camden Council and English Heritage. Sign and share to keep Denmark Street and The 12 Bar alive
The relentless march of the concrete spewing beasts continues. Not content with demolishing the world famous Twisted Wheel club in Manchester, the space where northern soul was invented, so they could build themselves a posh hotel to stay in and listen to piped music and sneer at the peasants walking past in the rain, faceless developers are descending on London to demolish the equally world famous Tin Pan Alley and turn it into equally charmless concrete towers that will lock everyone out whilst they count their money.
Tin Pan Alley or Denmark St is the heartbeat of British music culture with its music shops and its long history- it’s the place where bands in the 50s and 60s would buy songs and find managers, in the seventies the Sex Pistols rehearsed there and in the modern times it’s a warren of great guitar shops and a rare part of London to retina any character in the relentless march of the rich and bland and it’s also the home of 12BAR, the uniquely brilliant small venue that is the key stepping stone for bands of all styles of music to play in London.
We cannot allow this to happen – it’s time to make a stand against corporate greed and hang onto the crumbs of our culture.
