Good one browniecj.Good to know."Senior Member" Gramps? I guess we all succumb to that time passing con-undrom someday.Puts me in mind of the Jonathan Richman song "Dignified and Old"

I think it was Walton-on-Thames(maybe the The Walton Hop).Never heard of the Walton Chapter though.

As I recall, it was after reading that article that I went and banged on the buggers' door.

FYI: Roy mentioned, some weeks ago he couldn't remember what shoes he wore pre-Royals and DMs.

I had a pair similar to 'Matt', IIRC - but who knows...? satisfied.gif

I was in the local disabled shop last week (Mrs Mystery is partly disabled) and they had a poster on the back wall with the caption 'My Generation'. It had a drawing of three mods on scooters with Brighton pier in the background, and next to it a drawing of three people in late middle-age (obviously the same people) on electric shopping-scooters. It was actually tasteful and rather cute, but it reminds us whats awaiting the Class of 69! biggrin.gif

Wasn't my intention to bring anyone down.Just thought the walker with mirrors was clever.Forgot to say the caption on the photo read "Hope I die before I get old"   I don't subscribe to all this "youth culture" bullshit. A swindle created by Madison ave. add agencies tryin to sell plastic crap to kids with disposable income.Mick Jones of the Clash said "I don't trust anyone under 30" and I agree. Funny image M.O.M.The Electric shopping scooters.           I'm gonna pose this question again for the Firm.      Were there suburban and rural skins as well or was it just an inner city thing?

There were definitely skins - albeit two styles behind in many cases - across the whole of England and Wales in the day.

Scotland was a different kettle of fish, with many of that age having long - in some cases very long - hair, but still wearing what was skinhead-style clothing.

Slade were not f*cking Skinheads,how many more times has this got to be said!!!!!icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


Agreed , Slade were a manufactured skinhead band because skinhead was popular at that time so their managers thought it would be a marketing gimmick , exactly the same as what happened to The Who , who were never Mods !
