This is certainly a shop I would expect to find on 'Charlotte Street'.

Rattlesnakes was the debut album released in 1984 by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions. The band formed in Glasgow and were a great success in the second half of the 1980's. The band were formed whilst Cole (who was born in Derbyshire, England) was studying at the University of Glasgow. After signing to Polydor Records, the band had a Top 40 UK hit with their debut single "Perfect Skin" in Spring 1984.

The follow-up album, Easy Pieces, was produced by Clive Langer (ex Deaf School guitarist) & Alan Winstanley (who had previously produced Madness, The Teardrop Explodes and Elvis Costello and the Attractions). Released in November 1985, the album was a much quicker commercial success than its predecessor (entering the UK album chart at no 5 and certified Gold within a month). The singles "Brand New Friend" and "Lost Weekend" were the band's first and only UK Top 20 hits (charting 19 and 17 respectively).

To track down some more Lloyd Cole, checkout "Live at the BBC", volumes 1 and 2 (2007), which contains BBC broadcasts of live shows between 1984 and 1986.

Some trivia about Charlotte St, nothing to do with Lloyd Cole. Theresa Berkley was an early 19th century dominatrix who ran a brothel in at 28 Charlotte Street in London (now 84-94 Hallam Street), specialising in flagellation. Well I never!
