Simian Mobile Disco’s Tip: A Taste of Bitter Love – East London
Jas Shaw is one-half of the UK band, remix and production duo Simian Mobile Disco. Part-DJs, part-producers, part-two men on a mission, Jas and his partner James Ellis Ford spend long hours holed up in their studio, The Premises on Hackney Road in East London, producing their own tracks as well as albums for Klaxons, Florence and The Machine and Invasion. Lucky for them, one of their favorite coffee houses is just across the street!
A Taste of Bitter Love – East London
by Jas Shaw (Simian Mobile Disco)
A Taste of Bitter Love is on Hackney Road and is the only good coffee for quite a distance and it’s the best coffee in East London. And they have amazing sandwiches and cake. We go there every day.
Actually, while we are here, The Premises Cafe [on Hackney] does pretty good Turkish food. There was a Turkish guy in a band I just worked with and he said the kofte was as good as his Gran’s!
