Iain Sinclair on technology and cities

Iain Sinclair quoted by Philip Clark, Spectator 18 July 2015: The need people had to make a physical journey from the suburbs into, for instance, Soho because they were into this particular kind of music, these clothes or books – travelling between constricted suburbia and these apparent freedoms at the centre – those journeys of inward motion no longer exist. Now everything is connected with everything else; every place is like another.

I remember going in to Manchester to buy singles. Even HMV had that feeling.
