  • London Calling (Time Out Guides)

  • Time Out Guides , Time Out , 2008

Forty years ago, London was an ailing post-industrial city that had seen better days. Today, it's the cultural and financial capital of the world. How did that happen? And who made it happen?

Lavishly illustrated with new and historic photographs, it includes essays by leading writers and critics; reminiscences from key artists, writers, musicians and politicians; timelines charting significant events; and original material from Time Out magazine's unique archives of words and pictures. From Tony Elliott snuggling up with John and Yoko to Bowie at Hammersmith Odeon in '73; the Brixton riots to crashing stock markets; the rise of the Tate and Borough market and through two summers of love - if you want to know how we got to now, this is the book.
