'Jeremy Reed is a legend. What more can you fucking ask ?' - Pete Doherty.
'The disused Ham Yard recessed off Soho's Great Windmill Street was the site of some of the most influential underground music clubs of the 20th century including the famous Scene Club in the early sixties that hosted the likes of the Rolling Stones, The Who, The Pretty Things, and many others. It gave birth in London to mod culture.
Shortly before the yard's demolition and its conversion into an urban village dominated by Ham Yard Hotel, the photographer Gregory Hesse took shoots of Jeremy Reed performing poetry there on a one to one basis applauded by adjoining offices. Those Wednesday morning black and white shoots, along with poetry and prose by Reed himself, are the subject of a book documenting the last days of a Soho landmark.
