No apology needed Ed(won't call you Mr.as that could be seen as a mild insult,the horse and all)I have been the cat lately going off topic the most I think.Just saw the film "Kes"(1969) Was wondering if that was a film the Originals went to see.There are some cool clothes in it.

I certainly saw it, as Sunday nights at the local bug-hut (movie theater) was part of our scene.

There could be 20-30 of us, some couples, some randoms and those unfortunates who never got fixed up satisfied.gif ruining the films for the other patrons. Sometimes someone would get thrown out, occcasionally all of us would, but the following week we'd be back doing it all again.

A cracker I do remember was 'If' with Malcolm McDowell. Well worth a viewing or two if you get the chance.

Bizarrely around 10 years on from when I first used to go there - it was called The Palace, in Levenshulme, and if ever a venue was wrongly named it was this one - I took my current missus there to show her my dubious past... it was still a cinema, but on the night we turned up, it was showing Asian films for the newly-arrived Pakistani community.

We made our excuses and left, not for us.

The place backed onto a busy railway line and the screen would wobble and the seats would shake when the London Express rattled through... happy days.

And afterwards, we'd all go for curry and chips at the local Chinese - yep, Chinese curry - takeaway, drop the birds off at home and think about school or work the next day.

Where did my youth go? happy.gif

I said it was a bug hut: http://www.flickr.com/photos/woody1969/731173446/


And subsequently an Irish-themed nightclub where, for the price of a pint of lager, the bouncers would remove your teeth.

Did you?
Where did you do it and, what was it?
I have tales, of a pal (RIP), who was prolific in proclaiming his love - not for a football team, nor a lifestyle - but for a bird, across south Manchester - in acrylic paint. And he really, really loved this dodgy boiler.
His actions - not just in having nicked the paint from garages, spares' shops and DIY shops (of which there were few, back in the day) - had me stabbed (seriously), bottled - still have the scar and feel it in cold weather - and a criminal record, through knocking about with him and 'rattling' (you know what I mean) her mother.
To us - just us? - it was probably (psychologists will concur, I reckon) like a dog/cat, beast of the field, just marking its' territory - and they may not be too far wrong in that hypothesis.
To us, it was (the graffiti)... saying, stay away. Everything you see - birds, pubs, clubs and territory - is 'ours'.
Unlike West Side Story, and even kids today who can't/won't cross borders.. we all did cross boundaries if there was the hint of a bit of - ladies, please forgive my crudeness... some 'flange'. to be had.
A bit of 'how's yer father' was, sometimes, worth the risk - no?
Can I pause here and later, tell you of my pal. Skinny Den (RIP), and how we woooed(!!!) - and kept - our girlies?


Indeed i did Ed, started off scratching me name in pebble dash/render etc, before moving on to a permanent marker, usualy leaving me name, other things would be a band name, what mob you knocked about with, football as mentioned, what you'd got up to with a girl, or a good old fashioned insult i.e name... is a bellend, but my fav was the comedy penis complete with vinegar effects.

 

Never bothered with a spray can, to bulky to carry around, expensieve and a waste if you were doing up a bike.

 

Heres some from up the road from me, those who've read pressure drop's book will know what it's about, theres not much of this left in Bristol now

Don't think we got that one, Roy, in those days, cities like Manchester had a 'Wtach Committee' I think (could be wrong, though) that kept a puritanical eye on stage shows, films etc to ensure no naughtiness that could offend our sensitivities, was available.

I do vaguely remember one called 'Candy' though and we queued for that - just the lads - as there was real 'hair' showing. shog[1].gif

Innocent pleasures, eh?

And here we have it: (not the pubes, of course.) satisfied.gif

Here we go round the mulberry bush was one of my favorites from back then, and yes I remember candy.  But seventeen i had forgotten all about that one.  That was very sexy for us 15 year olds back then.  i wonder if it was about on dvd?

Yes, always liked that - re-watch it every time it's repeated - but it was more your neck of the woods, wasn't it?

All we got filmed round Manchester was gritty, Northern stereotypes with cloth caps, clogs and whippets. biggrin.gif

'appen it were, lad... 'appen it were. (That, of course is pure Yorkshire, as opposed to Lancashire, but I'm sure you get the point, geezer!!!) satisfied.gif
