Jools Holland: London Calling

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01jxzfq/Jools_Holland_London_Calling/

Devoted a few minutes to mods etc... but just touched on skinhead style.

Skip through to around 10 minutes from the end.

That would be a zighead then smile.gif, theres a few other clips on youtube of the band circa 75 with lowe wearing boots, jeans with turnups, early weller style haircut, denim jacket etc, its a bit of a wade and most of the tracks are crap, theres a couple of him playing in rockpile still wearing button downs, denim, bout 79 i think, just found it interesting sort of like a link between the period im interested in now and a time when music and fashion came on the radar for me if that makes sense. Thanks for all the welcomes

Think thats about it, will try and join in and contribute although my knowledge is limited.
Hi Mate - good to hear from you.

Reading of the characters you obviously know, on here, there's no point in me advising you to stay away from bad company. satisfied.gifsatisfied.gif

Great to see so many original skinhead pics. Not to mention some of people posting here are original skins!  Thats something I always wondered about as a skin in the US. What the original skins were really like, and how they dressed etc. Took 20 years but I can finally see now :)  gotta love the internet LoL

 

So did skins really develop from the mod scene? Was it 68-69?

It started to develop in `67(we were still Mods)-with the no.4 on top,then progressed through to `69 when the Media called us Skinheads.

Cheers.

I weren't sure if there was any technical or gender relevance to this zipper thing. Seems it makes no odds.

I think I stole it of this forum mate, Any cool pics I find I tend to put in one of my photo folders.

 

I've read that 'Boys Story' novel, that another photo of that lad apperas on.

It's a wee bit cheesy, but some of the clobber descriptions seem authentic.

Except that the picture of me is from 1969.

FWIW: just spent three hours reading all of the thread again... I'd missed so much when I originally skimmed the forum - brilliant stuff.

Ta.

Hello Basset - Great clip, thanks for posting.

Brownie beat me to it with the Bowie/Skinhead quote, I was gonna say 'Aladdin Braces'.


The following photos are not for the purists with a nervous disposition.......biggrin.gif...


Jesse Hector (Formerly of 60s bands The Way of Life, The Mod Section and Crushed Butler) Photographed in 1970 fronting the Hammersmith Gorillas. An ex Mod/Skinhead's look, more 'honest' than Slade's attempt I reckon.

Building up a good collection of 'Mods in Front of Caravans' photos, a few more here-http://www.flickr.com/groups/22014941@N00/pool/

Working on a 'Boot Boys'n'Bed and Breakfasts' collection too.
