totally agree with you in that point, also understand alot of the other points you made and really enjoy your stories on here about the past too...
again, i have no problem with any of you "originals" but it seems that just one guy has a problem with me...

Part of it is also remembering places that will almost certainly have no interest except to those who knew them at the time - nostalgia you could say.

you are 100% this thread is an really interesting walk through the past and i never blamed the old one on here for asking these questions... i just made fun about the young ones that ask these questions... and a bit nostalgia from time to time could not be that bad... wink.gif

so go on with the stories from the past and not the banter from today... peace and all that shit, hahahaha... wink.gif

and why then act like someone who know it all and wanna tell me or other what it is skinhead and what not??? even the "original" ones on here dont agree with you in many parts, when you say it wasnt a london thing or only done by notherners.. so do you really think you ´ve seen it all and know it all better than the other ones on here?? i think the story of m-om are more interesting and his remarks were the reason for me to join this board, cause hell yeah i´m interested in the past too, like all the other not 2nd or 3rd wave or even 4th wave skinheads on here...
better english?? i dont think so...
so what?? people know me, cause i´m around since ages and met alot of people during that time... is this bad if people know me??
you can find pix of me all over the internet... my interpretation?? yes, i dont dress in original 69 underwear, vintage sunglasses, etc... i started skinhead in the 80s and this was a way bigger impact to me, then alot of the clobber that was worn in 69... for me skinhead is an every days style... i dont dress up for the weekend for a do or a concert... i´m a skinhead every day and you will never see me without skinhead clothes.. and i feel free to mix the original style with 2nd wave skinhead style.. still looking more like a skinhead then you when you dress up for the weekend... and if you dont reconized, the style changed over the years.. some parts got lost, some additions are new, like pringle or slanzenger v-necks... but take a coser look on the next niter and you will find out that even purist traditionals are wearing slazenger now... even if alot of the 2nd wave skinheads from the ukskinheads forum think it is casual shite...
and again: skinhead is still here today in 2012 hold up by the young ones and it is not some re-anactment club that dress in historical uniforms for the weekend and put the clobber for the rest of the week in the closet...
so if it wernt the young ones during all the years, you wouldnt find out 3 years ago that skinhead still exist, cause it would die out with you guys...
so again, get over it... i´m not here for bitching... i dont post that much, cause i enjoy reading and hear the old stories, but dont be such a snob and attack cause i´m only 2nd wave and from germany.. you are NOT better than me.....

Yes the old gits disagree. I disagree with Lasttye about the state of Britain in the late 60s. I have a more upbeat view of it. So what? Do you want everybody to sing from the same hymn book?

The London thing was hugely important at the time. That is just the way things were.

If you have been a skinhead for 25 years, it is now a lifestyle. That is - IMO - different to a lot of what is being discussed here. A lot of 60s London stuff would look daft on someone my age. From what I see of Lasttye's kit it is age-appropriate and he does not look like a cartoon skin.

From what I have seen of Germany it seems like a top country better than Scandinavia and Holland. Maybe Austria and Switzerland are on the same level. So as a Brit I am not claiming to be better than you. If anything I would be envious of a lot of what Germany has.

Their is plenty of disagreements between members, but its always been civil, Kingstonian and I disagree sometimes, Me and Browniecj disagree a lot, Browniecj is a personal friend of mine, and a few others on here that i have meet personally.
By disagreeing we all learn, I have learnt some much about the original skinheads, from Colin and MoM who have a better memory of certain stuff than myself.
Anyway we still have to find those elusive Ruperts , biggrin.gif
