That's Not My Eighties, it's the decade as seen through the lens of my photographer friend Neil Mackenzie Matthews. My eighties was similar but with a northern slant, most of it was spent propping up the bar at the Hacienda. Anyhow. NMM has a small exhibition of his portraits entitled 'My Eighties' on show at The Great British, a traditional London caff in the heart of Mayfair. So double whammy. Great photos and Great British food at affordable prices. I'll definitely be going back.
Which reminds me, somewhere in the TNMA archives there's a snapshot of a much younger me with Robert Smith after a Cure gig in Manchester. Ah the olden days...
My Eighties runs at The Great British, 14 North Audley Street, London until summer 2013.
