“Having been involved in writing, photography and film – much of which was based in Soho for its film production, editing and sound recording facilities – I can see how complex and contradictory the place is. On the surface it is a busy, buzzy fun place to work and socialise in – and for many it remains like this. But if you go deeper it can be a very different place.” A.W. Rock

After spending too much time in the clubs and bars of Soho, and meeting many eccentric people, A.W. Rock was driven to tell a story that is in part drawn from real events.

Soho Honey book one by A.W. Rock is a gritty crime drama full of suspense.

‘Branen returns to one of his old haunts after being away for eight years…’

BLOG_Blogival_2017_BranenA few months into the new job, whilst he was back in London to photograph an anti-government demo, Branen decided to drop in on the Empire Room in Dean Street.
He was familiar with the club from his early days in Soho and he wanted to catch up with the owner, Ayo Wood.

“Look who we’ve got here, darlings…” said Ayo, as Branen hesitated in the doorway. “…My God man, come in… where have you been?”
