Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Norman Lamont, jowl faced Tory politician, was harassed by a tramp right outside the window.We used to call this particular tramp the "King of The Winos" (image unavailable). Surprisingly we didn't have a nickname for Lamont, even though he walked by every day.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
