Mod to Suedehead - Page 1077

post #16141 of 19331

The second or later waves hasn't been discussed, as they've been deemed outside the scope of thread by quite a lot of people. Me, i don't mind as long as long as the politics are checked at the door so to speak. There's a time and place for everything.

 

What i think would be interesting to delve into a bit more is what carried over from the 1st wave to the second, it has popped up on occasion. And the more recent cropped peoples reinvention or rediscovery of the more discrete or stylish stylish elements. But i won't force a broadening of the subject. To me it's good either way as long as one can pick up a fashion tip or two. ;)

 

When i search for related tags on pinterest or instagram i always tend to find a few quite well dressed types, but some pretty extreme types too.

The other one that was very common was 'like' said after everything ie "she's a good sort like" and "know what I mean like".  At the time we thought we were the business but it must have been irritating for older generations listening in.

 

Similar to nowadays with every youngster saying 'Awesome, Amazing and Cool' to everything that is truly stunning to just going in the shop for a newspaper.  It makes you feel like throwing a thesaurus at them and saying there are other words that mean the same thing.  Its especially annoying when you catch bits of programmes like X Factor where when a contestant is asked how their performance when replies "it was awesome" or "its been an amazing journey"

 

I did raise this topic of slang/sayings a few hundred pages back but it did not pick up much response

 

Moaning over !!

I've still got a mate that says 'like' at the end of every sentence. I mean 'every' sentence as well. "What's the time Si ?" I'd ask. "It's twenty to six like." would be the reply.

One I had to get used to was; "Do you wanna know ?" Meaning, 'Do you want to fight me/Are you looking for trouble ?'

'Sigh', that's another slang word that went over my head etymology-wise. As in, "Shut up you effin sigh !"

'Filbert' was used as a slang for 'brain' or 'nouse'. As in ,"Don't be a mug son. Use ya Filbert." Usually followed by a clip round the ear.

Slang-wise, that's all I can remember like.

However a number of political parties at the tome saw what they thought would be a pool of footsoldiers....From 78 to 81 and beyond, there were various waves, of different age groups and with different takes on skinhead etc. Oi started in around late 79 with the Rejects and was around a style of music, more akin to Sham etc, and not a look. The right wing werent involved with this here in the UK, and set up their own labels and events to promote their view and aims and actually to counter Oi etc...and there were a number of clashes! Two tone came on the heels of the 2nd wave here and the mod revival - which had started in 78.

Being a Southall born and bred lad, I'd like to know what your opinions are about the happenings of July 1981 are. I've lived through three riots in my home town. 1976, when a Sikh lad called Gurdip Chaggar was murdered outside the Victory pub in King St. The delightful Mr. Martin Webster of the NF said, "One down, one million to go." the day after (What a charming fellow) . April 1979 (St. Georges Day) when the NF decided to have their AGM at Southall Town Hall (the time Blair Peach got killed by the SPG) Then there was the 4Skins(amongst others) gig at the Hamborough Tavern in July '81. The first two incidents were pretty cut-and-dry. In 1976, the local South Asians  kicked-off because the Police were seemingly doing nothing about a hate-crime against a Sikh kid, even though it was local common knowledge who committed the offence. In 1979, it was a deliberate provocative act by the NF to have a meeting at Southall Town Hall, considering Martin Webster's previous insensitive comments about the murder of Gurdip Chaggar three years previously. The riot that does perplex me though, is the 4Skins gig at The Hamborough Tavern. Was it 'A perfect storm' situation ? Brixton and Toxteth had just gone up in flames. Was it two years of Thatchernomics that had got everyone in the 'blue-collar' class against each other, a 'divide and conquer' if you will. Or was it simply a race-riot. Was it belligerent Indian Sub-Continent descended lads spoiling for a fight with anyone White, or was It Right-Wing Boneheads deliberately going to an Indian neighbourhood for a ruck ? The first two riots were foreseen. Shops were boarded-up days before etc. The 4Skins gig at the Tavern was not on the radar at all.

40£ including post/freight isn't too bad.

I was talking to someone last night who had been in Street ( Somerset ) last week,the shop there selling sheepskins was selling new coats for £700,used coats for £300 and sheepskin slippers for £30...so you had a bargain with your coat !...I hope to be going to Somerset this week and if I have time I will have a look at the sheepskins.

As for witty,sporting scousers,I wonder how that myth started.

 I thought you'd like that one!

Cords...As I said before I bought some Levi cords this weekend ( a light sand colour ),last night my GF asked me what I intended to wear them with,and I was a bit stuck for an answer.

I was wondering what blokes on here who have cords wear them with?..I suppose shoe wise the obvious answer is Desert boots..I think that I used to wear mine with brown loafers.

Yes, and 20£ was the post/freight fee, 20£ was for the coat itself. Cant imagine no one wanted to bid higher, perhaps the coats that are lighter in colour are in higher demand?

Anyhow, really quick delivery, 2 days from Holyhead, Wales to Sweden.

Yeah I have a few pairs of cords.  I wear them with desert boots, boat shoes/moccasins, loafers, and sometimes with brown or oxblood Solovairs(dark brown or chocolate cords).
