Yeah ,you and the rest of the country! This was when things were changing and some of the more questionable shirts were getting worn,late '71-72 if I recall.I had a brown one similar,but am glad to forget about it.Welcome to the Forum Chris and look forward to hearing more of your memories.That mother load of photos came along as a much needed boost IMO and cover quite a few years. BTW That Deco house in the back is a rare beauty;)
 Interesting for the insight to Ian Levine,apart from that all was pretty much a rehash of previous material it seemed.Was that Long John Baldry outside the Wheel BTW ?Agree with Levines comments regarding the scene and how it should continue with sharp, young blood and not old farts like myself.
 Brilliant FF.I have heard of it,but I never knew the history of the place.Wally Whyton was one of the resident Bands?That just triggered a long forgotten "Lift Off with Ayshea" memory……….I wonder how many years the "Pollo" has got left in it?

Eleven was a pivotal age for school kids.11+ exams ,mixing with older youths at High School,Youth Clubs,etc?Parents giving more trust,freedom etc You can't ignore the fact of some kids maturieing earlier than others also.In 69 I was twelve.All my mates were three to four years older,that probably explains why I was allowed to travel to away games etc with them..Everyone had a different story.By Eleven I was making my own clothing decisions,cooking my own meals and pretty...
Correct quote,for the record....
