:) It was FFS who really solved it by suggesting Avenue.

Your go Tom

The extra clues were added in the hope that somebody could see what I thought was obvious because I could see people were looking at the post but there were no bites.
I'm still none the wiser even after seeing the answer !!

What might be obvious to you, because you set the clue, is far from obvious for the rest of us, Nifty!

Electric Avenue is an anagram of 'clever ace's unite' without the 's'. The beginning of the clue is either 'black speak' or a quote of the lyrics from the song 'Electric Avenue'.

:D Off topic but Brixton brings back fond memories. In the mid fifties, as the owner of a dilapidated 250cc Red Panther, I would get off the tube at Brixton and wander down the length of Stockwell Road, visiting the multitude of all those red shops owned by Pride & Clarke.
