Meet Alison E:
I am an American expat, who has lived in London for over 18 years. I have been an Anglophile all my life. I am a DJ and a fashion designer who has been inspired and influenced by British music and fashion since the 1980's.
I've DJed at Koko (Club NME & Room At The Top Feet First), The Dublin Castle (Britpop Saved My Life & The 5th Sunday), The Enterprise, The Bar Fly, Proud Gallery, The Camden Head (Nuisance), The Monarch (Nuisance), The End (Trash Christmas Party), The Roxy (Airport, Pop Klinic, Rehab, & Panic), The Lexington, Bloomsbury Bowling Alley (The Gutter Ball, Pins & Needles), UnderSolo (Babybear), The Bull and Gate, The World's End (the last two during Camden Crawl for Turning Worm and Stuntfox). Some of these nights were my own clubs. I was also a 'door bitch' for the legendary club Trash.
Because I've spent so much time hanging out at The Good Mixer (RIP), The Dublin Castle, The Earl of Camden, The Hawley Arms and The Spread Eagle, I've met and become friends with a lot of people in the music industry...from bands and musicians to label owners and band managers to promoters and journalists. I know people from almost every genre and every decade of music from the last 50 years. I guess I've been in the right place at the right time!
I am a certified guide for the Borough of Camden and a tour guide at the Royal Albert Hall.
