Propper Old Skool Graff
The basement of Afflecks Palace in Manchester is half taken up by a shit club (well at least it was the last time I was there) with the rest being used as a stock room by the shop above, Cafe Society, where I worked on and off for the best part of 6 years as a donkey boy. Originally it was the cafe for the department store which used to occupy the building back in the day. Theres loads of room down there and its a bit of a pity it isnt put to better use. Apparently, before Cafe Society got hold of it it used to be the original home of the record shop Eastern Bloc when they just did mail order. Well thats how the story goes anyway. I assume that this grafitti dates from those times. Theres loads more like this, all by someone called 'Buck' I presume. Nice.
