    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What I meant was,it was written by an ex uni graduate from the 80s -Oppression and Unemployment etc.

    I never felt oppressed nor did any of my Jamaican Mates.Just out to have a good time.I went to Jamaican Clubs etc.,but never got that feeling anywhere.Later(in the 70s) yes there was but I was not into "Roots".

    I cannot speak for the North but Employment was plentiful where I was - I thought the Ship Builders were still there, on Tyneside etc.in the 60s.

    Definitely the only extract i want to see. Just to judge of the historical accuracy of course (i've got to inspect that Fred Perry).

    See what you mean about the context, completely wrong for '69 (and nowhere near right for '81). Absolutely clear that no ex-skinheads were involved in this production. The foot stamping and shouting though...I cringed and wanted the earth to open. Still, with few exceptions, that is what those middle class media tossers always do to us. It is as if they imagined themselves as skinheads, their stereotype externally and their worldview internally. Wankers.

    I`ve spoken to two ex 60sSkinheads this morning,and the reaction was the same.They either walked out the Room or turned it off.I went on the Computer.I am thinking of suing B.B.C for "Misrepresentation etc." :D


    We did not have Sten Guns,maybe a few Sawn-offs.Fck me,if we had the Sten Guns - Greasers and Hippies would have come extinct overnight.......:D

    He talks about Jamie Reid doing work with Sex Pistols' album covers in "the late sixties"!?! Those Reid shirts btw I think are hideous...like a lot of 'heritage' brands I think they have lost their way a bit, although Flynn himself looks pretty well turned out.

    Back in the earlyish 70's, perhaps 73 I had a great live pre Tommy Who bootleg LP from the The Fillmore. I can't remember exactly what was on it but I do recall "Little Billy" and "Fortune Teller" (Guy Stevens again) were on it, I also remember liking it better than much of "Live At Leeds". PS Mystery was that gig The Oval ? - Rod in leopard skin suit if I remember correctly, no ?

    I saw Roger Daltrey and Wilco Johnson last year at the Barbican. They were doing a talk for some cancer foundation. He's a tiny little fella. Bet he loved every minute of being in Tommy. For the first time in his life he was the same height as everyone else!

    I was at the Rock at the Oval 1971. I remember the sound system was terrible for most of the acts. Particularly the Faces..I was way past skinhead then with long hair and flares.

    Sorry M-O-M but as it wasmeI that raised the point I need to make just one comment ;-

    We never drank out of beer bottles !!

    We used to have light and bitters etc. I remember my old Dad saying never put your lips to a beer bottle because they would used to be stacked in the pubs back yard and rats, dogs etc would piss over them. Drinking out of beer bottles was a much much later habit

    As for the rest of the wrong points in that program the list could go on and on

    As I said before any youngster watching that episode would have the completely wrong conception of what we were all about

    Shame
