Saint Etienne - Side Streets

Not the best song off the album, but pretty awesome anyway. Anyone know where in London this is? A lot of what's in the video looks vaguely familiar, but I can't quite place it.

The video, or at least some of it is set around the London Bridge area.

Nice, thanks for this link - maybe not the best song of this really great album, that's true, but it's very relaxed and goes straight into the ear. The Clip is quite similar to their 90minutes-movie called "finisterre" (with music of the album with the same name), maybe the longest Musicvideo ever (?), this here is a bit more artificial, but is has the same view on London, a town which they obviously like.

The external shots of Pete are filmed around Croydon (look out for the Croydon Advertiser board), and the car shots are mostly from the Barbican area (the brightly lit tunnel is Beech Street).

The promo was directed by Paul Kelly who also co-directed Finisterre with Kieran Evans. Paul and the band have also just completed another feature-length film set in London, this time based around the Lea Valley in London's east end.
