Half the photos of original Skinheads are of MoM ..The Face of 1969....He must of had his own personal Photographer following him around,
The other face is Bunty's Brother...MoM both Skinhead Icons.post #14658 of 229689/11/13 at 3:03pmQuote:
That was me,and yes that was my Missus,Conrad..post #14659 of 229689/11/13 at 3:07pmQuote:
Photographer,Agent and a bloody posse of Minders, following him about!!!
Spoken to Bunty regarding his Brother(about joining us on here)and basically he just looks at it as nothing really relevant-and that is what a lot of Mods think.post #14660 of 229689/11/13 at 3:13pmQuote:
Out of the whole period(`67/`70)I probably had maybe 4 Photos done.One at my Sister`s Wedding,one when I was changing my Style(lost),one with my future Wife(the first and third have been posted on here by Lasttye) and one with a couple of my Mates on holiday-driving around Cornwall (lost).post #14661 of 229689/11/13 at 3:29pmQuote:Originally Posted by con man
Ay Up Mike, no I never grew it, got on my tits after a bit,
with the lads I knocked about with, one did carry a camera and took loads of pictures, but he passed away and god knows where the photos are,
someone got hold of a 3 or 4 and they are on my facebook, though are not good quality, me and my missus took one or two of us and quite a few in photo booths
that is a good photo of your family and proof that picture quality was good
my dad had a kodak instamatic at around the same time and I have got photo of me in 67,68, one of me and my cousin in Rhyl in 1970 and one of me wearing an American Astronauts toy helmet that was my brothers a couple of years earlier (sign of the times) which was taken in 1973 all taken with the same camera and all good quality.
I don't know how expensive cameras were back then, but the old man worked for the GPO and my mum worked on a pottery factory so they wouldn't have had a lot of money
Fair play mate, cant say i've ever tried top lip growth, the growths rubbish on me.
Camera's just never floated me boat, stemming from my hatred at having me pic taken, my brother on the other hand had one of them polaroid jobs for xmas once, huge thing, we just never knocked about together
Seen yer pics on fb, thumbs up from me, one things for sure, if you stand in dogshit someone will snap the event, and within minutes people across the world are laughing at it these days.

But if someone says that they had all this top notch gear and you had to be one step ahead of the game, yet were only 15 in 1972 making them just 12 in 1969 and more of a Mod than a Skinhead, how can he be ahead of the game when he was a Mod and 12, (and Mod had its heyday in 64, making him 9 years old then), surly if he's a Mod in 69, he is well behind the game and as a 12 year old who had all this fine, top notch clothing, maybe mummy and daddy bought it for him, but by the time he would have left school and been able to afford to buy his own, it would have been 73.
So the question was, where is the photographic his evidence of all this finery, could he not have got his parents to take one, in all his spendiferous glory, that he is so proud of and so proud of telling everyone on here.....I smell bullshit!!! .....even if no one else doesCon Man,Northerners/Midlanders reffered to themselves as Mods right through the whole period from the end of the 60's Mods through Skinhead/Suedehead.That's how I would class myself if asked?Of course kids relied on their parents at 12 years old.What's unusual about that? Look back at the French newpaper cutting of Chelsea fans a few pages earlier,I highly doubt they were supporting themselves financially apart from a milk or paper round.The only time I recall having a photo taken that was public was one printed on the first day of Spring or Summer at Trentham Gardens,around 1970 I think?It was on the front page of the Evening Sentinel.I've mentioned this before I believe.post #14663 of 229689/11/13 at 6:20pmpost #14664 of 229689/11/13 at 6:30pmQuote:Originally Posted by yankmod
I'm gonna weigh in briefly on this camera biz.Except for a brief period in my teens when I was required to pose for photos(for professional reasons.Boring bullshit posing for pics) There are very few photos of me (even with all these mobiles around) And I suspect others are like me.
Same here fella. Always hated having my pic taken. There's a period between when I was 16 and 22 where I have almost zero pics of me in Captain Skinhead regalia. Still hare having my pic taken but do so for the missus and my siblings/Mum and Dad.post #14665 of 229689/11/13 at 6:40pmQuote:
Well you can find anything if you look hard enough,but is it within context.My only true reference is what I thought I saw and remember from real life.I know from relatives and reading that the term Mods covered a whole decade and a huge variation in styles.I'm talking about on the street -not stagewear,which has always been exagerated.You can Google Mod and get everything from Pucci prints and bouffants to parkas and the like.All had a specific time frame and history throughout the sixties.From Buttons comments he seems to try and stay true to a particuar era,when you say you do not.I had wrongly jumped to the conclusion that because you went to Skinhead/Northern Soul do's,you followed the later Sixties style and to me your suit style,fit and combination didn't ring right to me as I remember things? Not an insult just an observation.That's not important to you,as you wear what you like and feel good in.I do the same.
You can see from many of the images of revival Do's (Spain,Italy,etc) That some of the followers have no idea of the original timeline and just think that because it was labeled as Original 60's Mod etc. then it was fair game to throw everything on together with a dodgy haircut and everything would be just right?Many end up looking nothing more than sad caricatures of the time.
I just saw some of the images of a do that Roy was at (Pavillion?) and surprised at some of the Older looking blokes and the length/way they wore their Harringtons.It just didn't look right to me.Who am I to say it's wrong,but in my mind it was? I could go on and on all night and we might agree to disagree,that's the way it is though.
If you read my original couple of posts on here I didn't have any photos to add,but I think I tried to lay my cards on the table about where my head was at.I have had what many would consider a charmed life and a good run as it were.It may sound like Bullshit to you (and others) but unless you have walked in my shoes you'll never know.I am again making an assumption about who you think the bullshitter is on here. I've enjoyed reminiscing and scurrying around forgotton pieces of my brain.I honestly couldn't have done this about any other period in my life.Looking forward to your contributions.post #14666 of 229689/11/13 at 10:55pm
Funny that Gsvs5 should mention harringtons as I was going to ask about them.can anyone remember in 70/71 remember tonic ones ? I saw one a lad at school who had one it was dark red/black.
I was looking at clothes online yesterday and I came across tonic harringtons for sale,some of them looked ok IMO,not sure if its something I would wear though.
The other "different" item I remember seeing back then was tonic raincoats...I only saw 2,one was red/black ( similar to the Harrington but not exactly the same) one was blue/black,can anyone else remember seeing these....or any other "one off " items ?post #14667 of 229689/12/13 at 12:46am
Unless your parents were very rich how could a schoolboy sport the same 'ahead of the game' smutter as a working lad ? a decent sheepskin was roughly £25 in 69 . My paper round was paying me under two pounds a week then .. no possible way to save up that sort of dough . Even more important is that young kids would not have known what was IN or Out until it filtered down from the older lads let alone have the pull to influence fashion.post #14668 of 229689/12/13 at 1:27amGsvs5, Northern and Midland Skinheads called themselves Mods, well thats odd, everyone I have spoken to, called themselves Skinheads.
Correct me, if I'm wrong, you were 12 in 69, how the hell would a 12 year old, know what was being worn in the pubs and clubs.
Dig at my suit all day long, it dont bother me, funny thing is, in the real world, I get compliments and that includes original Skinheads who were old enough to drink back then, at least I have got the bottle to put a photo up, to be condemned by people like you, who are obviously the font of knowledge of all things Skinhead.
You are correct about Will ( buttons ) having met him myself a number of times, in real life at various Skinhead nights up and down the country, he lives and breathes it and his knowledge is of that period is far greater than yours and yet he was born in 1970, when you were ( supposedly ) in mid flow, of your Skinhead, sorry Mod, times.
And as for Stoke City, you say the Waddington years were hard to watch, funny that, because every true Stoke fan from back then, says they were the greatest years and we have had few enough of them.
Most Stoke fans in the 70's would of heard of the Coddy Hughes incident, but you hadnt and had to refer and quote from a football hooligan book.
You did mention one local Skinhead gang but not heard of the rest and one of them is really well known locally from the 60's right through to the present day.
And one thing that really made me laugh, you said, that you had to one step ahead of others ( or some such nonsense ).....yeah, you were that far ahead you were calling yourself a Mod in 1969, getting your shoes from Grattons catalogue and not a well known well established quality shoe shoe shop and you were only 12 at the time and no 12 is ahead of the game, unless mummy and daddy are rich.
My guess is, you were never a Skinhead, you called your self a Mod, because you did not have the bottle or you wernt allowed to have your hair that short or wear the clothes.
And now you live in a self important fantasy world, telling everybody how it was back then and making up little stories as you go, because you believe everyone is hanging on to every word of your self indulgent monotonus crap.
I have come across people like you, many times from every generation of Skinhead.
I'am done conversing with you, prefering to talk to the real originals and anyone from any decade there after and from any country who has lived it for real or still does.post #14669 of 229689/12/13 at 3:05ampost #14670 of 229689/12/13 at 4:49amQuote:
