Big Guns of Brixton Academy

My favourite gig venue in London.

Legend has it that the “Brixy Academy” narrowly escaped demolition when it was bought by a squatter for a quid in the ‘80s. Since then it’s gone on to become my favourite gig venue, if only for its late-1920’s theatre interiors and legendary musical history. The venue has seen dozens of music videos and live CDs and DVDs recorded here. Plus it’s dead-easy to wriggle your way into the upstairs VIP bar if you bat your eyelashes at security.
