Take a walk on the wild side through Camden's music history with Camden local and girl about town Alison...I moved to London because of Camden's music history, specifically because of Britpop. I've drunk, danced, seen gigs and hung out at most of the pubs, clubs, bars and music venues in Camden over the past fourteen years. If I haven't experienced some of the stories I'll be telling myself, I personally know someone who was there.
