Roy - amongst Della's press clippings would there be an article from the Daily Mirror in 1969 entitled 'No One Likes Johnny'? Or even the one which (to my eternal embarrassment) calls me 'King of the Skinheads'? (That took some bloody living down, I can tell you!).
Alex - either of those in your collection?
I will check Paul, she has given me that famous pic of the Boy and Girl in sheepskins from 69,
My recollection too. The journalist is apparently writing about an earlier era, as though 'mods' were wearing such things as wing tips and Harringtons long before and that such items of clothing were 'kidnapped by the skins'. He appears to be writing about '65 and '66. Unless his 'mods' are the older guys of our era who got out when all the 'mini-skins' came along. I don't know.
Cheers! Great picture as well! Sorry M-o-M not a member of that Shades Club site :/ Btw does anyone know what kind of fred perry polo's you was wearing? I've just come to the attention that they used to have different collars like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/vtg-60s-FRED-PER...ht_1850wt_1141 Did the collars already change after '67-'68 to the ones we see nowadays?
Yes,I believe they have-ask any Mod who was about in `62/63.They have taken bits and just shoved them together.Little Queenie apart(and I am not just saying this,as I know Her)other present day Skinhead Girls/Women would have been ribbed merciless by other Girls-by their Appearance.Look at Dana to see what I mean.
Thank-you, Mr. Brown - I will have to buy YOU a drink next time I see you!
