While the rest of us were ripping open the wrapping paper, like so many festive zombies yank-lacerating the bindings of our captive and pliant gifts, blogger IanVisits was working his way around the streets of London, reliving a very different zombie experience. Any Londoner familiar with 28 Days Later will never forget the opening 20 minutes of that film, where the protagonist tours a lorn and deserted capital to the morbidly powerful tunes of Godspeed You Black Emperor (also used yesterday, curiously, for the Beeb's adaptation of The 39 Steps). Ian found a similar desolation during his wanders round town, as these photos attest. A London without its buzz.
