Body Talk resident and Superstore family member Rokk has been taking pictures of East London nightlife for as long as he’s been making people dance.
We wanted to share his gallery on our website because the pictures remind us on whose shoulders we stand. Lost weekends in Shoreditch at Golf Sale and Family, bonkers Sundays at the George and Dragon, popping into Trailertrash at On The Rocks for ‘one drink’, Hoxton Square before it resembled Leicester Square, Brick Lane before it became Camden, The Joiners before it was trendy, when Jonny Woo was Satanica Pandamonica, when secretsundaze was a secret, The Russian Bar before it was actually called The Russian Bar, early morning refreshers at The Royal Oak before it went gastro, Gary’s Bar, Dovebridge, Return To New York, Bones & Ramsey at Catch, Mother Bar on a Sunday (and Monday) nights… All these things inspired us to start Dalston Superstore and we’ll always be grateful to the pioneers who showed us the way.
We’ve put a selection of these photos up on our Facebook
