...And then we'll take it higher.
I was in Brixton, London, today and stumbled across... Electric Avenue. There's a market there.
I had no idea Electric Avenue was a real place. Nor that the song was even "set" in London.
As a fan of 80's hip hop, I felt the same way I felt in my early days in New York City: Delancey Street; Hollis, Queens; Farmers Blvd; Sugar Hill; the South Bronx; Queensbridge; "next stop, 125th St."... it's all for real. (As is Brighton Beach, if you groove more with Neil Simon.)
I cannot, however, verify the Bristol Hotel (much less Room 515). But we all know where it's at: Jamaica, Queens!
