Equally id watch this one if it was more then the same saddos involved, who were at the birth of every culture ever, knew everyone, shopped at every shop going and have amazing memory. Its just like we have discussed about the proposed book on here, id buy it in a heart beat if it was what pubs you drank at, first threads bought, who did you first see in the style, favorite clothes, what was a friday and saturday night etc rather then ''The working class and social divide made a juxtaposition in culture that shifted towards the..'  zzzzzzzz ! Piss off ! 

I've just watched that. Bloody Nora. I don't mind that Paulo Hewitt fella. At least there's a consistency in subjects he talks about when they wheel him out. Weller (well, obviously he's gonna be there). Kevin Rowland ? Well, at least the first incarnation of Dexys got me into Geno Washington, so he gets a pass on that. Robert Elms ? For fuck sake, has there been any British subculture that bloke wasn't involved in 'right at the very start' ?

'When I was one of the first Skins'. 'When I was a Glam Rocker'. 'When I was a Ted'. 'When I was a Punk'. 'When I invented New Romantics'. 'When I was a Smooth Jazz Cat that went out with Sade.' 'When I was a chimney-sweep in Dickensian London, QPR were still in Queen's Park, not 'Bush like today. Never been the same since they crossed the 'Arrow Road no it ain't, and no mistake guvna. Any old iron ? (for the railings round my stucco Georgian town-house)

Everyone today looks like they got dressed in the dark.

Not this good though. Not by a long chalk.

Work in progress with a friend. Born out of passion but we'll have a crack at it...watch this space.

A 3 finger nice rolled shirt that combines the materials of more 60's ivy league with the British styling we are familiar with, 3 button collar, locker loop, box pleat etc. Will take a while to get it all sorted but hopefully should be good.

I'm liking that shirt a lot. Definitely a piece of me that. Yes indeed.

Considering what I was wearing today. Of course I'm lovin' your shirt. The one I'm wearing is pre-owned. It'd be nice to buy a similar looking new one for a change.

I don't know whether this has been posted before. I came across it on the 'bay. It's a knitting-pattern for a 'scooter coat' from the 60s. Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

Apologies if this has been put up before. I almost soiled myself thinking about some 60s kid getting one of those from their gran at Xmas.

A little musical interlude...

Don't know if we've had a link to this before but Soul Source forum has a transcript of Dave Godin's article about The Twisted Wheel from Blues & Soul magazine Issue 50 (January 1971):

http://www.soul-source.co.uk/_/words/the-twisted-wheel-blues-and-soul-by-dave-godin-r1926

An interesting read generally, with some comments on hair styles and fashion but specific interest for us in references to the Manchester driving gloves look:

"... I noticed a style that I have not yet seen in London (but which I am sure will eventually drift down this way) in that very many young fellows wore black "right on now" racing gloves. Apart from looking cool and groovy they also serve a utilitarian purpose for the dancing there is of such a high standard that a certain degree of acrobatic skill is incorporated, and when really carried away whole rows of lithe young bodies bend over backwards and touch the floor with their hands!"

That look's not new to us on here, but I thought I'd post the link as some contemporaneous, independent corroboration (m'lud) that might be of use for the book.

On a personal note, less than 12 months after this article I was wearing driving gloves with my Crombie completely unaware at the time of the Twisted Wheel or any "right on now" connection.

(As a complete aside, can anyone tell me how Dave Godin's name is pronounced: Go-din or God-in?)
