It's an old hardcore band from Southern California. I'm sure Jason remembers them.
It's odd that they used this for the cover, since they weren't a particularly skinheady hardcore band.
This ecletic american mix of graffiti letters, punk music and skinhead elements is probably incomprehensible to you brits, the original guys in particular...

lol, yes I remember Walk Proud, had that 7" back when it first came out. yea the book cover will be just slightly more subtle than that I hope! biggrin.gif

Care to elaborate a bit?

To be honest Alex i can't elaborate anymore than what i said smile.gif

I've just sold over half my footwear collection on e-bay.

I've tried to cut the collection down to the bare essentials. But I do feel this many pairs of shoes/boots is still excessive for a 38 year old.

Would anyone agree?

Ideally they should hint at mod/skinhead style, but because the jacket itself isn't strictly speaking in the style the shoes don't have to be 'authentic'. They can be brogues, loafers, plains, gibsons, even boots or riders, or something that simply looks right with this jacket and jeans. Any suggestions? Preferably UK high street stock if possible.

The closest I have seen so far has been 'Rockport' from John Lewis, Doc Martens 'Gaucho Crazy Horse' (those hint at boots, non-shiny leather), Or maybe Loake Buckinghams. Any other candidates?


Got the Shoes for you Paul.Cannot get them onto here-amateur.Alfred Sargents "Holborn".Could go well with this Jacket.I have the Black Smooths "Soho".I wore them to York.
