Really interesting story about how the ' Look ' spread from London to Newcastle back in the late 60s and how hard it was at first to buy certain clobber

a lovely colloquialism….The other beauty I heard today was Jurgen Klopp saying it was "The Salt in the Soup "

... and the next thing you see is hordes of people (later types trying to recapture what they suppose the look to have been) doing it.

Damn this bee! Anyone got any insect spray?

Well, well, well...

I'm on the forum at the moment [9:20am, Saturday] transcribing stuff for 'the book'. I try to do a little when I can. I'm into the 660s, which shows you how slow the going is. I wish I could move along a little faster.

I just realised I am into a section I should have left for Little Queenie, but I couldn't see the point in stopping.

That story is a good read. The Newcastle boys seemed to be in the know as to what was happening down south but they didn't have the shops selling what they wanted to buy clotheswise. He writes that you couldn't buy Dr Martens in Newcastle at that time but even down south we had to make a trip to Brick Lane to buy our first pair.6 months later plenty of local shops were selling Martens.The author travelled around so he would have been aware. I remember Newcastle always had large following when playing away from home. I noticed the holiday camp photos and at that time plenty of teenagers were exchanging info on clothes with other groups when they were on holiday.I found out about the Ivy shop and the Squire shop at a holiday camp..

I've been trying to do a little research, and I came across this pic of a girl. I was sure I had seen it before, either on here or on the Ballroom Blitz blog. Ballroom Blitz does have a couple of pics of the same girl, but I'm sure I remember seeing her identified by name and by where she lived, and there was a post-skinhead pic of her with an 'afro'. Any clues?

Here it is, M-o-M, you had seen it here, i posted this article a long time ago. I think you can find her 'skinhead style' picture on the Ballroom blitz blog too.

Thanks. I think there have been other pics of her from her skinhead period. But the main thing is fixing her geographically.

^ lives in Pinner Green council estate and mentions Northwood and Ruislip - got to be Pinner in Middlesex. Maybe she knew Kevin Rowland too.
