From the introduction: "Around seventeen years ago I stumbled upon a semi-hidden world which only truly came alive well after midnight and which existed in the heart of London, behind unmarked doors, in red-light drenched basements.

It was a place and time inhabited by characters who could have tumbled from films of their own making, a sideways glance at a reimagined indefinable past; a world of modern day spivs, foot-high quiffs, lizard skin-lined cars, tooting saxophones, unlicensed speakeasies and sharp suits.

More than a decade later I began to revisit my old haunts and companions.

The Afterhours Sleaze and Dignity series of books was the result, which this book is part of; a tribute to this world where I spent some of my youth and also a photographic soundtrack to the imaginary film it inspired and which has played behind my eyes ever since - an attempt to capture my own particular Soho of the mind.

In this book are some of the people who created the music which accompanied that film and for that I can but thank them, you couldn't ask for a finer suave but crumpled, one over the eight, long after midnight soundtrack than the one they've created."
