L'Amour à la Chaîne pt.6

Remember last time, we took you to the Paris Métro? Today you find us on the Glasgow underground, known locally as the ‘Clockwork Orange’ on account of the 70s brown and orange colour-scheme and the fact it runs like a little clockwork train on a loop around the city centre.

Here it comes now...

...mind your head as you step inside the diminutive carriage.

You know in France they would call it “L’Orange Mécanique”. I’ve heard it’s due a refurbishment, but the locals are too fond of the kitschy decor: peeling paint, cracked tiles, letters missing from signs - like that one over there.


We know a song about that. It's by Parisian indie fire-brands du jour Les Shades.

also, watch their tasty hi-contrast video]

Or some music from the Clockwork Orange soundtrack. Walter Carlos on the Moog. Nice!

Thanks for the suggestions kitty and John, both of them would be ideal next links in the chain.

Do any other readers have any more suggestions where we could go next?
