I've just had confirmation from the nice folk at Warp that the tower block image on the front page of the Maximo Park (geordie art rockers) website is indeed Hornbeam and Redwood Towers in Leytonstone. I lived in Hornbean Tower for five years from 1986 to 1991. They couldn't confirm when the picture was taken so for arguments sake let's assume that it's from 1988 and that I'm peering down from my 12th floor kitchen window. They blew them up in 2002 to make way for more sympathetic housing (we get our crack dead cheap round that way now).
