post #24271 of 25224

I think i rather like these shoes, a nice dark oxblood colour with a tinge of brown to me( though that might be my bad eyesight), the segs do indeed take some getting used to, but no slips so far.

Nice! They look like my favorite shoe color, #8 shell cordovan. Are the brogues leather or cordovan? Do you know?

It's a fine song, but 'rawk' it ain't.

I'm not a London boy, but as an American I'm def the biggest anglophile on here

I've been into the skinhead scene since mid 80s, started off with oi/hardcore as most guys did in the USA, then saw the light and progressed to 60s soul, northern, ska, skinhead reggay, hammond grooves etc. I still listen to copious amounts of all skinhead related music (mostly oi in my car, soul/ska otherwise)

I still go to our local soul/reggae nites on a regular basis. Will be in London for the New Untouchables NYE bash this year.

and I still wear the "uniform"...DMs, crombie, check shirt, jumpers, harringtons etc. I havent shaved my head since the mid 90s but I keep a short and neat 8-4-2 variation

There is another user here from Belgium (?) named SoulStylist that is also into traditional skinhead culture with a similar background as mine

And being from Sweden, I am curious if you know of the band Perkele (have been playing since 1993)....they are one of my fave oi bands from Sweden

there've been some threads you might be interested in if you havent already seen them

Doc Marten thread 1

Doc Marten thread 2

Doc Marten thread 3

 

I'm in the States too and if you're the biggest anglophile here I must be close. I'm also from the mid 80s and followed exactly how you described. I'm from California and was part of the Santa Cruz Centurians. I to still wear the clobber ignoring my wife's displeasure and or eye rolling. I've kind of gotten a displeasure of new Oi! and my frame of reference is from the 80s but I've heard Perkele and have to agree that they're pretty good and a nice change from the cliche sound that is prominent in new Oi! bands. Old crew mates are in SF Reducers, Suede Razors, and The Swinging Utters.

I also like early junk glam. I believe it was Iron Virgin which dressed like Droogs when they first started. Bilbo Baggins, Hustler, Crunch, and Fresh. Have you heard of Yummy? They're from Germany and covered a lot of reggae songs into boot glam. It's not every ones cup but I think their cover of Liquidator which starts with a great T Rex sound is pretty good.

Jay doesn't really seem to post on here anymore; he's sort of moved on but he definitely knows his eggs. All that junkshop glam stuff is getting very popular now-- it's about time! Iron Virgin's "Rebels Rule" is a great number, and yeah they had that droog thing going. Let's be homest here, the only really good song Hustler had was "Get Outta My House", later covered by the Business😄 Probably a tenuous-at-best crossover with mod-suedehead, but I love that stuff as well and have scores of those '70s glam singles, though spinning them when I DJ seems lost on most but the chicks, who like it cos they can dance to Gumbo, Heart(the one from Nl), Alvin's Heartbeats, etc. better than hearing "Shocks of Mighty" for the Nth time! Haha.

Too much 80s apologizing?

I think what cov means is that there has been a dismissal of some of the elements of the culture that those of us who came up post 69 experienced (Oi!, boneheads etc) to the point of feeling the (unnecessary) need to gloss over or apologize for said elements. There was a bit of back and forth in the threads early days, mostly by posters who have not been heard from on here in years. I feel like the tide has turned and that there are more of "us" now than there are originals and those topics are embraced a bit more openly now than, say 3 years ago.
If I totally got that wrong, my apologies Covskin haha!

Disagree Strongly. Psychedelic Rawk it Are. Rawk with a W signifies its the UK version.

The Kinks were many things but were never even remotely psychedelic.  Ditto the Las.

All noted. BUT - and it's a big one - 'You Really Got Me' and 'All Day And All Of The Night', were rock. They had edge. Their later material, classy though it may have been, psychedelic though it can be argued to have been, and as much as I appreciated it, was about as 'rock' as a plate of jelly.
