Whisky Maltdown and the Yamazaki 55

In 1972 when Bunny and I were in London for the first time, one of the main topics of conversation — apart from the latest episode of the Coronation Street soap, or what radio DJ Tony Blackburn would next feature on his morning music program — was Centrepoint.

Centrepoint, as its name suggested, was in the very center of London, in the heart of the West End, and was one of the first multi-storeyed office blocks in the city, which since then has suffered an eruption of these architectural monstrosities, steel- and-glass warts that have sprung up to blemish the skyline.
