Oasis in Kings Cross – Supersonic 20 years on

Readers of a certain age might remember (through a haze) the excitement of the Britpop era and Oasis.  It was 20 years ago that they filmed the video for Supersonic on the rooftop of what is now the self storage warehouse on Crestfield and Belgrove Streets off the Euston Road.  there’s a great ‘then and now’ video from 2012

And here’s the original.  There’s also a funny compilation of Noel Gallacher’s DVD video commentaries, including Supersonic where he generally slags off music videos.

For readers of an even older disposition, who maybe like their guitars less harsh try Bob Marley filming ‘Is This Love?’ on Kings Cross’s Gifford Street in 1978 (a 7 year old Naomi Campbell is allegedly in the video at the Keskidee Centre, now sadly burned down).

Thanks to @podnosh Nick Booth for tipping me off, though not for making me feel old – 20 years, for heaven’s sake……
