HARVEY'S SOHO (2014)

Harvey Gould with dog, Berwick Street Market
Harvey Gould was born in 1928 and moved to Soho aged nine. In this wonderful short film (23 minutes), by Hazuan Hashim and Phil Maxwell, Harvey takes us on a tour of the area, sharing stories of the people and places he knew growing up during the war, and later working on Berwick Street market and running a cafĂ©. If you know the area, you won’t know it like Harvey; and if you don’t, just enjoy Harvey’s charming and fascinating narrative.

'SLINGSHOT' by THE SENIOR SERVICE (2018)


If, like me, you still get a frisson of excitement seeing the new year on a single for the first time, then the Senior Service’s groovelaiden new 45 should fulfil that for 2018.

Available to pre-order now, and out on Damaged Goods Records on 26 January, ‘Slingshot’ is backed with a version of the old Prisoners number ‘Hide and Seek’. New album, King Cobra, is released in the spring.
