    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.

    Ah yes , a great wee filum , SV. How times have changed when you consider how everyone seems to be smoking inside and those mock guns handed out ! You would most likely , literally , be shot if you walked about with guns like that now in central London . .

    Picking up on a comment about 900 pages back. Just wondering if you still have them all.

    Bulletin: transcribing for 'the book' (honestly), I have just managed to get through the Great Denim Jacket Debate.

    Looks like a 'kiss me quick' hat. Now where is the 'what the butler saw' machine...

    Two of my aunts were sitting in deckchairs drinking tea when it was all kicking off on Brighton beach in the famous Mods and Rockers mid sixties battle. They regarded the fraca as free entertainment. They had lived through the heavy Germany bombing of London docklands so for them the fighting was child's play. That generation were pretty tough and not much phased them. The photo does look staged though.

    I'm a bit behind here, roytonboy but yes, indeed so. A mate I used to stand on the Kippax with was at the same school as Graham Gouldman. I seem to remember my mate telling me that Gouldman had written a hit song for The Yardbirds while still at school or just after he left. Not sure about the authenticity of that but quite a talent anyhow.

    That was a good documentary ... and I still have my copy of The Boys in Blue.

    Bloke on the end here seems to be rocking that look too..while the guy in the front in the white jacket looks like he is going for 'smallest lapels ever' award. Band is blues band The Poor Souls were regular performers in the Bristol area and pic is from 66:

    These jackets the Animals are wearing from 1964 look cheap and ugly - almost like 'prison wear'. Wonder what brand they were? Jeans and shoes look quite 'rocker' too.

    This bloke from the Poor Souls...

    ... (wearing two kinds of check - argh!) I remember shirts like that. I saw mods wearing them in Blackpool in 1967, sometimes with the collar buttons undone and the collars over a crew-neck. I always had the impression they were by Van Heusen, but I might have been wrong.

    The 3 guys in the middle look a bit ordinary and would hardly get a second glance today , even the look of the "two checks" is something I often see being worn by other men who are easily in their 70's!

    It wouldn't be the last time that the Animals looked like 'rockers' as , l saw picture of them years ago posing on motorcycles. . I can't find the picture at the moment but someone else probably will . .:happy:

    Not bad at all DJ, very classical look.
    Are they the white trimmed 6 eyelets DMs with the 'worn' look they recently re-made?
    Too bad they didn't do them without the steel toe caps - and without the holes in the leather.
    You won't have the pleasure to make holes yourself...

    Yep, they are those dr martens tower boots, got em off ebay, they are a size too large but they are suprisingly comfortable, i quite like the steel toe caps to be fair.

    I never like photos of myself lol, always look awkward lol
