I remember the Oz magazine in the 70s, in one issue it had a Ex Skinhead now dressed as a Hippy with a little badge with Spirt of 69 on, I always thought it referred to the Skinheads at the Rolling Stones concert in Hyde Park 1969 London.

Agree with Lasttye on this.I did mention to the Admin that the original Poster was p*ss*d off anyway.The Name got changed without any Vote from us(the regular Users).Can we have the Name changed to "Hard Mods /Suedeheads",Mr.Admin Man??

I'm with you on this one. The thread title is now the same as the Spirit of 69 book title, which has nothing to do with us, and that's not going to work.

I was at that concert. The Stones sounded like they hadn't tuned their guitars.

To LA Guy:

I/we appreciate your position and your hard work. Please consider re-re-titling the thread for us.

M-o-M

Thanks.

I can tell you one thing. Thanks to Gargle I'm thinking of changing the title of the book to 'Skinhead: the Demonising of the Working Class'.

Not really. Being ironic. Some of the British blokes on the thread will get the reference.

I totally agree with Lasttye and my vote is for 'Hard Mods/Suedehead' or similar.  I would not be content with Spirit of 69 as I do not think it will attract the right people to contribute to this great thread.  Is a vote required or can the Administrator go with what the majority are saying?

I think I'm with Brownie on the hard mod bit though.
As Lasttye says, the name "skinhead" wasn't adopted as someting to call yourself until later on. Its what came just after what's largely discussed on here, after the media caught on and it bcame a mass fashion for the kids. But along that way of thinking "Hard Mod", from all what's been discussed on here and elsewhere, was never a term used at the time to describe any group - but something mumbled in an article in the mid 70's then picked up on much later in a few skinhead articles.
The look of the late 60s being discussed on here, depending on where you were from could be described as Mod, Later Mod, back end of mod, what mod became, what mod drifted off into (and with foresite) what's to become skinhead .... but never Hard Mod.
I think 'Suedehead Roots' is slightly more appropriate but "Mod to Suedehead" will intise a little more related traffic.

By Using the words Mod or Hard Mod/ Suedehead it will attract more people to this site. as buttons said Hard Mod was never a term use, But it has become a term used now. One thing for certain Suedehead must me used.

i've been following this on a daily basis and i'm off a few days and sheeesh...

i also agree on the mod/suedehead. i actually found this while looking up mods, suedes, and skins!

If you type HARD MOD into any search engine, you come up with pages of Computer modifications etc... too. And most Seuedehad references lead you to Morrissey sites.

 

Its a Hard (mod) one, isnt it!

Don't know where you got that notion from, I admit I get bored easily though ;).

 

But I agree I think a better name would be something like the suggestion made early "Hard Mods to Suedeheads"

post #9718 of 18539

Search engines bring up all sorts of obscure things when a word is punched in, punch in sk--head on goonle images and theres Willy wonka, suedehead and the berk Morrisey appears, i punched in the word smoothie and now the kids are moaning coz theres no bananas left for there lunch boxes tomorrow.

 Its all a bit of a puzzler to me, but im quite happy to go along with the majority on naming the thread

Seems like we're getting a consensus. I'll go along with it.
