I agree with the tight shirt but there were many examples at Margate where a Sta Prest style of Trouser was worn properly.They were not around the arse with Boots.Lasttye has a very smart pair(which he has worn on more than one occasion)and again worn properly.Have you been to the "Weekender" I speak about flyfronted? Before going to the Dos I would have thought the same-but I have been pleasantly surprised. and I have travelled about.

I have been to a few doo's in recent years mainly the Set the Tone 67 ones at the Social in little portland st . There were some younger ( 25 ish ) lads and girls who did look the part . My opinion however is that a full look will always look better on skinny herberts than Dads - in the same way as pics of 16 yr old Edwardians in 1953 look so much better than 40 something teds in 1975 . ill always wear a lot of the gear but would think of myself as Ivy league rather than a Skinhead these days

I guess braces , boots and trousers halfway up your harris are out ( sound like my mum now ) but a nice 60s oxford , levi vintage and brogues will remain simply timeless .

Anyone remember the song which went to the tune of 'The Drunken Sailor"?

What shall we do with the (insert name) bastards?
What shall we do with the ... bastards?
What shall we do with the ... bastards?
Ear-lye in the morning.

Stab, stab, stab the bastards!
Stab, stab, stab the bastards!
Stab, stab, stab the bastards!
Ear-lye in the morning.


Atrocious, but I bet you'll be whistling it all day!

You know I was thinking about saying that as I was typing the message, but no I'm not I'm not Caleb and why is he saying that's his name I thought it was Roy? I've been told such big feet or bigger weren't really common back then a more recent development most likely due to all the hormones pumped into the foods nowadays.

We don't carry razors, we don't carry lead,
We only carry hatchets - to bury in your head,
We are all supporters, fanatics every one,
We all hate Man City, Leeds and Leeds and...


With a bow-legged chicken and two knock-knees,
We hate Arsenal, we hate Leeds,
City fans, get on your knees,
Worship the Stretford, Enders...

Probably won't make that one but really enjoyed the Roots of Reggae session last evening at the Horse & Groom.

The Stags Head is fairly easy to get to,  a short walk from Hoxton and Haggerston stations, not even that far to walk through from Old Street.... and next to Kingsland Road with buses to points north, south, east and  west.

 

Live Injection is here

flyfronted,I have another couple of "verses" to your song..... "Boots are made for bovver, Trains were made to wreck, And if i see a City fan i,ll break his f***ing neck. Who,s the greatest player, ???? is his name, And if you come to Eastville, You wont go home again"............... I can remember loads of songs and chants,but i cant remember from when in the 70s,its like certain games or styles they get mixed up,a mate of mine Topper had a brilliant memory , records,football matches,who did what and where,he could remember it all,i envy that.

Maybe of interest ?

Extract of an interview of the actor Gary Oldman: 

 

 

Back then, though, it was the Seventies and I suppose I was a sort of suedehead - I wasn't really a skinhead, but it was still a bit of a uniform. You had the Crombie coat with the pocket handkerchief with the stud. I owned a couple of those, I walked into school assembly once and I had a white 'Benny' on - a Ben Sherman shirt, button-down with a pleat in the back and a little hanger loop above it. I didn't have a jacket on and the headmaster, before I even landed, said, 'Oldman, wait outside my office.'

The accessories were important - loafers and brogues, and the socks: they were white and red. I remember saving up for things. I used to get up really early and do the round with the milkman; and I had a paper round. I remember gazing into shop windows at a pair of brogues or Dr Martens on the other side of the glass, like that ring in Lord of the Rings! And I'd think, 'Three more weeks…'
