As Gaz says it depends which part mate. Kensington end there is little happening, Queens Drive end there's plenty of shops with a couple of pubs.

Depending on what you're after I'd guess you'd be venturing elsewhere.

What part you moving too , dont live there but used to drink around there and some decent places there and plenty of shops and pubs as well as great transport links . I'd class it as mid range of Liverpool if that makes sense .

Just off Prescot road not far from the big tesco. We chose the area as it looks handy for transport links and plenty of shops like you say. Thanks for the info tho mate much appreciated

Okay, I took the quiz too and a couple of things I remember from childhood were not there, e.g.

1) we didn't say "trainers" (for gym footwear), we said "traineeeees"
2) taking time away from school was called "saggin' off"

Was great to see words like "melt" and "tick" in there! Got the result pretty  much anywhere from Liverpool then south east towards Wolverhampton, which funnily enough matches the geo-meteorological phenomenon called "the Cheshire gap" (anyone read the Weather thread?! ;) )

Not bad given I left Liverpewl in 1989 :thumbup

(although too many years in Milton Fucking Keynes clearly skewed my result :P )

Yeah traineeeees not trainers. Used to mainly say bunking but would also say sagging. Used to bunk the bus from school too.

I see it all over the Sefton Park and Smithdown Road areas. He must have a rival because a lot of his 'work' gets crossed out by other 'artists'.

It really is shite. I hate taggers. They offer nothing, it's just self-aggrandizing garbage. Also, this knob thinks nothing of spraying his crap on people's garden walls, which is a bit naughty. Someone had to paint out a big 'TSA' that he'd done on a white garden wall on the corner of, if I recall correctly, Parkfield Road. Just off Ullet Road.
I recently saw people mentioning the amount of the city this fella has covered on the Skyscrapercity website too.

Out of order doing it on public property, yeah seen some of that at the back of the sports hall in the mystery park in wavertree, someone crossed out his tag and wrote something like the TSA is crap  ;D

Hopefully he will get collared soon as he seems to be getting out of hand the little sad blert
