About Your Guide

Me with Louis from Rialto at the Camden Crawl
Hi! My name is Alison, aka DJ alicat...
I've been either behind the decks, on the door or behind the scenes in and around Camden, for over 17 years.
I've DJed at Koko (Club NME & Room At The Top at Feet First), The Dublin Castle (Britpop Saved My Life & The 5th Sunday), The Enterprise, The Bar Fly, Proud Gallery, The Camden Head (Nuisance),
Me with Ed from The Darkness
The Monarch (Nuisance), The End (Trash Christmas Party), The Roxy (Airport, Pop Klinic, Rehab, & Panic), Bar Vinyl, The Lexington, Bloomsbury Bowling Alley (The Gutter Ball, Pins & Needles), UnderSolo (Babybear), The Bull and Gate, NYE at The Stag in Hampstead, 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. I'm also Piers Miller's 'Sassy Assistant' at Stuntfox.
Me & Viv Albertine from The Slits
Because I've spent so much time hanging out at The Good Mixer, The Dublin Castle, The Earl of Camden, The Hawley Arms, The Prince Albert, The Old Eagle 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!
Me & Mark Morriss from The Bluetones
A lot of the stories I tell, I got from hanging out with, as I say my 'old music industry guys' in the pub.
And if we're lucky...one of them just might be at one of the pubs we stop at on the tour.
I am a certified guide and a member of the Camden Tour Guides Association.

I have been interviewed by several people about Britpop for their dissertations for university. 
I was interviewed for Music Heritage UK's podcast about Camden and Britpop. 
I have also worked on multiple projects with a variety of businesses and groups about the music history of Camden. 
I am available as a consultant, fee is negotiable.
