Ketamine is a drug used in human and veterinary medicine developed by Parke-Davis (today a part of Pfizer) in 1962. Its hydrochloride salt is sold as Ketanest, Ketaset, and Ketalar. Pharmacologically, ketamine is classified as an NMDA receptor antagonist, and at high, fully anesthetic level doses, ketamine has also been found to bind to opioid μ receptors and sigma receptors. Like other drugs of this class such as tiletamine and phencyclidine (PCP), it induces a state referred to as "dissociative anesthesia" and is used as a recreational drug.

Skins & Punks
5th – 14th December.
Newburgh Quarter, Carnaby, 3 Lowndes Court , off Carnaby Street, W1. Free entry open 11am – 7pm daily.
Photographer Gavin Watson’s images are a unique social history of a special time, Skins & Punks, The Lost Archives 1978 – 1985 draws on a gritty reportage style which has now become hugely recognisable in photography but was ahead of it’s time in 1978.
“Carnaby Street was probably the most important street in London for us out of town boys, we would save up and get the train down and head straight for Carnaby. In fact without Carnaby Street and shops like Sherrys, Merc and The Face , I don’t know if skinheads and mods would have lasted as long as they have. It is great for me to be back in Carnaby with this exhibition, to come full circle.”
Each of the photographs capture the day to day lives of a collection of characters who Gavin grew up with including his younger brother Nev, which he has now brought together in this exhibition.
