    Now here's an important shop in the world of fashion and music!

    This is the "Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die" clothes shop at 430 Kings Road, London, home of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren.

    Note that the clip's current date is incorrect, as the shop only bore this name from 1972-74. After this it was renamed "Sex", being frequented by the likes of the Sex Pistols, Siouxsie Sioux and Adam Ant.
