My main gripe is because because the main people wearing it are latte sipping fashionista metrosexuals who have no clue what a skin is. And would be disturbed by the connection. And no crops, usually I see it with bizarre hitler youth haircuts.
Look at Brutus' look book to see what I mean.
I'm all for revivals of subcultures, but not when it gets muddled and has all the teeth pulled out of it.
Even saw a Harry (with a damned hood!) on the street being worn by some young rich slob in ladies jeans, sloppy turnups, and shapless 700 dollar boots. Was tempted to jokingly stick out my brown skinned hand into a sieg heil and say "oi skinhead!" to see his reaction, but I was with family.
And then there's this:

And talking about erasing history... Anyone notice the huge cultural omission from the opening ceremony? No skins or rudies, or reggae. Plenty of Austin powers though.

I like that Yankee- "Latte sipping fashionista metrosexuals"smile.gif

When they have Programmes about the 60s,on T.V.,we always get erased.According to the likes of the B.B.C.etc.,the Beatles etc.were the 60s(no they fcking were not,in London(about `63) they were being pushed aside by the Rythmn and Blues Scene-The Rolling Stones etc.)Even my Mum could not stand them .They always show the same Scenes.Hippies prancing about,Grosvenor Square,a bit of Carnaby Street(but mostly Kings Road).The reason being,they are middle class Liberalists-who want to invent their own History.We do not exist,because they do not want us to!!!!Go with the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics.

I will say one thing here-I wish Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend would stop calling themselves "The Who".They were a complete Group-that is why I liked them.One half of that Group are dead,so leave it at that.Go under their own Names.
Sorry went off Track there!!!!!shog[1].gif

I was thinking about the Music we love-Soul and Reggae(mostly)and how it influenced us.When did any of you first hear Music by Black Artists,that made you think there is a difference?
My first Introduction came via my Mum.She loved The Ink Spots,and when I was very,very young,She would have them on the Radiogram."Listen to the Voices-harmonising"Mum would say.She also liked the Platters-never the fast ones,always the Ballads.My Eldest Sister liked Rock and Roll(She went around with the Teddy Boys),my Favourite Singer then was Little Richard-He would put so much Energy into the Singing and Stage Movements(Elvis Presley was an Amateur).When I had the chance I would go into Her Room and put the Little Richards`78son.If She caught me,woe betide me.But it was worth it. smile.gif

LOVE the Ink Spots.One of the greatest falsettos ever recorded(the harmonies obviously fantastic)

For me it was discovering my older brothers record collection when I was around 8 or 9. He had lots of rockers era reggae and funk and that stuff just blew my mind. I remember the first time I heard a King Tubby dub and I don't think I ever looked at the world the same again.

First black music i ever got into was Motown, Four Tops, Stylistics, The Elgars Loved it then and still do.

First black song i remember hearing and knowing it was a black artist was Chuck Berry's My Ding-a-Ling. I think i was about 7 or 8. Loved that song, Chuck Berry was awsome.

The Look has def gone mainstream for past couple years...see a lot of guys out and about now wearing 1/2" braces, but they are just fashion boys, nothing to do with any kind of UK sucbulture

we were recently at a new british pub, and all the waitstaff were wearing 1/2" braces as part of their uniform, good thing I wore a belt that night!!!!

Thats what I was about to ask. Do most of them even know where they're lifting the style from? My guess is probably not.

DM's are for everyone mate - no exceptions.

And, if jeans are the heart of youth clothing, DMs are definitely the 'sole'. satisfied.gif
