Anecdotes from behind the retail frontline

Nick Cave was walking past the window with his son. It was around the time of the Pochahantas Disney film and his son was wearing a cardboard hat from the tie-in meal at McDonalds. Nick Cave had another of the hats in his hand. I imagine he wore it when he got home.

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.
