Comment: The shop became Minus Zero - Stand Out, with the two Bills running separate businesses divided down the middle. Unique in this sense, worthy of a book on its own. They were Bill Allerton & Bill Forsyth.

Forsyth still runs a stall at the Red Lion Market on Portobello Road, Saturdays only. Before Plastic Passion was a record shop it was The Dog Shop, first 'head' shop in London.

Comment: When I was living in Harlesden in the 1980s I used to visit 'Plastic Passion' just off Ladbroke Grove. It was run by two guys who, I recall, subsequently fell out and divided the shop down the middle (à la Steptoe and Son!) and renamed each half to continue business separately. You couldn't make it up.
