89 Clyde Street

“One of the better-known flat identities ... named after the bar on the television cartoon series The Simpsons. This, though is about to be upgraded to Flaming Moe's, after the fiery cocktail invented on the show, and thanks to a friend at art school the new sign is ready to go. So proud are these residents of where they live, they requested a word-number from Telecom and are listed in the student phone directory under 477-MOES.” [ODT 14.05.99]

“I remember the day we named this flat... back in '97... we always meant to put “flaming” above the left corner... never did get around to that ...” [Paul Thompson - Survey, May 2009]
