Are we not drifting away from what this thread its all about... original Skinheads/Suedeheads...and to some extent original Mods with their connection to what became Skinheads,
What happened in the late 70s/80s is actually irrelevant to this thread as the later Skinheads/Mods was a revival with nothing new to offer. this is no offence to the later revivalist by the way.
But to me the Mods/Skinheads only happened once..the Originals.
As someone who came late to this thread,I would second those comments.It is the fact that it is focused on a specific tperiod in history that it is so appealing to me.I have no interest,admiration or inquisitiveness about any of the somewhat related sub-cults that followed.If I did,I would seek out a thread that focused on that or start one.
