倫敦街頭 - Google Street View: Streets of London




欲罷不能,用Google Map的Street View功能繼續遊英國。而今次只帶大家遊覽大英帝國的皇都——倫敦,走遍十個關於英國電影與搖滾的景點。

  • Carnaby Street

在60年代,Carnaby Street不單是英國最潮、最hip的年輕人蒲點,更是世界時裝潮流的風眼,是Swinging Sixties最具代表性的地方。曾幾何時,Beatles、Rolling Stones、Who等的成員就在這條街上走過,這裡還有最前衛的服裝店,如Mary Quant(瑪麗關),街上躋著穿著緊身西裝的Mod仔以及奇裝異服的Hippies。今天的Carnaby Street 雖依舊人潮如湧,卻不能同日而語了。

  • Denmark Street

談到Swinging Sixties,不得不提倫敦的音樂街Denmark Street。這條短短的街被視作"英國的Tin Pan Alley",意即流行音樂集中地。Beatles、Rolling Stones、Jimi Hendrix及Sex Pistols等,在位於這處的錄音室灌錄過大碟,昔日亦有不少音樂人住過這裡,如Elton John在這寫下他的首支大熱歌曲"Your Song"。時至現在,Denmark Street雖已不再是音樂工業的搖籃,但仍有不少唱片店進駐,樂迷不妨到訪緬懷一番。

  • Wembley Stadium

《童夢英倫》(Sixty Six)
的背景為66年,正值世界杯舉行得如火如荼之時。影片的結局,父親為圓兒子的心願,不惜一切駕車衝往世界杯的決賽場地,親眼看著英國隊戰勝西德隊捧走雷米金杯。66年世界杯的決賽地就是倫敦的Wembley Stadium (溫布萊球場)。建於1923年,已於2007年重建,現在球場最顯著的標誌是跨越天邊的弧拱。但人們最懷念的還是舊球場的雙塔。

  • Maryon Park

對筆者來說,66年的倫敦還有另一樁大事 (雖然我未出生):安東尼奧尼在倫敦拍成他的經典作《春光乍洩》(Blowup)。讓觀眾印象深刻的,除了片中表現的Swinging Sixty時代風貌,還有那一宗撲朔迷離的謀殺事件。事件案發的公園,是位於倫敦東部的Maryon Park。今日的公園依舊綠草如茵,看來與40年前並無兩樣。


春光乍洩

  • 3 Savile Row


檢視較大的地圖


就如《春光》裡的公園,經典的藝術作品能使一個寂寂無名的地方變為聖地。上圖是倫敦鬧市的Savile Row三號。在60年代,這座樓是Beatles自家廠牌「蘋果」公司的辦公室,Paul麥卡尼、John連儂等人便在這裡上班。時值69年,他們在商量拍攝一部名為《Let it be》的音樂電影,正當談到如何為影片作結尾,一時興之所至,想到跑到公司的天台表演幾曲拍了便成。《Let it be》一片記錄樂隊最後一次四人陣容的公開演出,還有捕捉了街上途人與附近居民的驚喜神情。


Beatles的天台表演

  • Beatles 在天台演唱 "Don't Let Me Down"



Savile Row的不遠處是倫敦最繁盛的商業街區Piccadilly Circus(皮卡迪里廣場)。Syd Barrett還在的第一代Pink Floyd便以一身的迷幻服飾在這裡拍過一輯相。

  • Battersea Power Station

檢視較大的地圖


搖滾迷不會否認,Pink Floyd是繼Beatles後另一支最偉大的樂隊,其經典盤《The Dark Side of the Moon》百聽不厭,而他們在70年代出版的其他概念性大碟同樣是那麼的經典、耐聽。當中包括《Wish You Were Here》、《The Wall》,還有《Animals》。《Animals》封面上的發電廠是倫敦的Battersea Power Station。

Pink Floyd的原班人馬 (當然不包括Syd)在07年的Live 8演唱會中重組演出。當電視在直播時,鏡頭煞有介事地pan向遠處的Battersea Power Station,可見這座發電廠因Pink Floyd而深入民心,更可證明當日的直播導演(或攝影師)是一名Pink Floyd迷。



Pink Floyd's《Animals》

  • 430 King's Road - SEX


檢視較大的地圖


Pink Floyd所代表的Progressive Rock是70年代搖滾的主流,然而並非所有人那杯茶。時值英國經濟蕭條,低下階層的憤怒青年十分鄙視那一幫搖滾恐龍,以及他們的長篇大論搖滾史詩,誓要樹立自己的旗幟。一位名叫Johnny Rotten的小伙子穿著"I Hate Pink Floyd"的自製T恤走過King's Road,被某家服裝店的東主Malcolm McLaren發掘,其後更慫恿他與幾位同樣憤世嫉俗的青年組樂隊——Sex Pistols便因此成為英倫朋克的第一顆炸彈!

Malcolm McLaren的服裝店名為SEX (稍後改名為Seditionaries "騷亂份子"),位於King's Road的430號,與現今有"西太后"之稱的Vivienne Westwood合辦。店子早於80年已不存在了,與朋克浪潮同樣來去如風。

  • Central Saint Martins College


檢視較大的地圖


英國除了是搖滾大國,也是時裝王國。除了剛才提及的Malcolm與Westwood,著名的時裝設計師還有Paul Smith、Alexander McQueen、披頭麥卡尼之千金Stella McCartney,而三人同是蜚聲國際的設計學院Central Saint Martins College的校友。而校友之一Pulp的主音Jarvis Cocker,他的樂隊的首本名曲"Common People"更將Saint Martins College"唱"得街知巷聞。

歌詞是這樣的:

She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge,
she studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College,
that's where I,
caught her eye.
She told me that her Dad was loaded,
I said "In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola."
She said "Fine."

Jarvis Cocker

  • Pulp's "Common People"精彩現場演出!


  • The O2 Arena

嫌筆者所數的都是舊聞舊歌舊片舊景點?不如又介紹幾個倫敦的新景點。這座名為O2 Arena的表演場地,集體育、音樂、歌劇、電影首映等功能於一身,是倫敦最新最前衛、最具未來感的新地標,萬眾期待的米高積遜復出演唱會便由這裡作首站。而即將上演的精彩節目亦數之不盡,有興趣者請到這裡瀏覽。

  • The Gherkin


檢視較大的地圖


因倫敦是一座老城,又可能有種種政策因素,在市中心沒有高聳入雲的摩天大廈,但前衛的現代大樓還是有的。在City of London金融區,便有這座被當地人稱作"黃瓜"(Gherkin)的巨廈 (筆者覺得它更像拉長了的復活蛋)。在電影《走得麼新郎哥》(Run, Fatboy, Run)裡,男主角的情敵是有面有米的金融界才子,他的辦公室便在這座大樓裡。不知道金融海嘯對在這裡上班的人打擊有多大?


"黃瓜" The Gherkin

  • Waterloo Station

最後到訪的是歷史悠久的Waterloo Station。車站從建成至今一直是倫敦交通運輸的樞紐,每日的乘客與列車的流量極高。電影《叛諜追擊3:最後通牒》(The Bourne Ultimatum)在這個熱鬧的車站內拍攝一幕非常精彩的追捕戲。

用Google Street View的漫遊倫敦街景,感覺仍不滿足。始終一天,我要親身遊覽這個嚮往已久的城市。
