Buskers, Street Entertainers
  • As you're walking up Holloway Road - Give a wave and a 'Hi' to the old black man who'll be sitting on the bench in front of the church. He's a really nice bloke and he might just include you in his continual soliloquy if you're lucky.
  • Baby face and barry leech
  • There's a bloke who sits outside The Body Shop, opposite Angel tube station, and sings to you through a traffic cone as you walk past. I think technically he might fall into the category 'creative homeless person hoping for a quid' but I've never seen anyone else 'play' one of these!
  • the guy you mention in sainsburys car park is known locally as "busker john"
  • Guy in Sainsbury's car park has been there for decades singing same mix of Dylan etc. He's a bit half-gone but deserves reward for longevity and doggedness alone
