He had the right idea ..  it was like getting a load of 1970s footballers and asking them to play a CL match ..

I have mentioned dressing suitably for my age before and the older guys here generally agreed,well i think that Keith Richards gives a good lesson on how NOT to dress or act suitably ( unless you want to look like a sad old twat of course ! ) IMO.

The thing is though many of 'skinheads' staples were OLD MENS clobber ...  the shirts were made for executives on holiday , the shoes for london city bankers as was the Crombie coat .. a 60 year old man in wingtips , crombie and oxford button down would look very smart indeed.

these clothes were not intended for 14 year old cockney urchins.

flyfronted. I totally agree,which is why i would wear those clothes now...i would not wear Dr Martens,sta prest or braces,though.I am not even too sure about denim jeans and although i really like some of the Alpha jackets on here recently i am not sure if they are suitable at my age.

A link to a, old Belgian tv program where JJ (Burnel) is interviewed (in French) :

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpsCk6C52G0

 

At 1.45 mn the journalist ask him what he was doing before before the Stranglers (founded 1974) :

 

"I made some economics studies and i was a skinhead..."

 

Funny how suddenly the editing cut to another scene. I guess the word "Skinhead" was already such a rude word...

Clouseau, I checked that Paul Smith belt out, £69 ! I think that i have found one nearly as good from John Lewis (navy jeans belt) £22. Would it be too off topic to name "the coolest man alive" in our opinion ? maybe he should have something to do with Mod to Suedehead,or just too have been around in those times ? In any case it will not be Keith Richards or Paul Mcartney !

Paul Smith always cost an arm and a leg !

About the "coolest man alive", not off topic if he fits in the "mod to suedehead" range...

I'm not surprised you would appreciate them browniecj.I mentioned them cause I wanted you older "Originals" to take a look.I like them too,just strange every time the 60's are revisited.Agree C.Watts is and always was very cool(amazing considering he was the biggest drugs user in the band) By the way, I am the coolest guy alive(had to be said).Didn't K.Richards always look a twat(after 65 anyway)TA

When Flower Power./Psychedelia started coming to the fore.I remember seeing the Pretty Things around `65/`66 and they played good R&B Covers.When I saw them in `67(Marquee),they could have been a different Group.

The Stranglers started off around the Guildford Area,JJ Burnel had moved to Godalming(from Notting Hill) which is down the road from Guildford,when he was very young.If he was a Skinhead he probably was around the Godalming area-as I do not remember him about Guildford.I knew some of the main Godalming Boys in the late 60s-as we knocked about together a lot.There was a Rock Club there called the "Gin Mill"-where most of the named Bands played.Free were also based around Guildford as well.Paul Rodgers used to drink in the local Pubs a lot.Bruce Foxton(The Jam) was born in Woking which was only down the road from Guildford.He used to be seen drinking in the Cannon(Guildford).smile.gif
