    I thinks it was MoM who mentioned the difference in music played at northern and southern clubs -

    It has already been recognised that the Skinheads played a great part in Reggae going National(this is by the Artistes themselves)-regardless of what this Journalist said.
    Roger Eagle hated the more uptempo Northern(if I can remember properly).He said ,at the time,Drugs is killing the Club Scene.I believed he resigned because of it!

    I've been growing my hair out a bit lately, but I don't really know the exact way to get my hair cut in an Ivy League style, that very short haircut with a part. MoM I think you have one in all your pictures, any tips I could have for my barber?

    It has been a long time since I have given a barber any tips about my hair apart from "make it look as though I still have some" or "try and make me look as handsome as Patrick Stewart - leave me to work on the voice"!

    If you like the way my hair was 'back in the day' you have my permission to take my pic along with you to the barber shop.

    I do recall that I began to feel that my parting was a little high and I brought it down a little further. About all I can say.

    Good luck with it.

    I met Roger a few times in the late 70s early 80s when he was running Eric's Club in Liverpool. That was a recognised punk venue, but he would do wonderful things like having a night which included sets from The Slits, jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, and a reggae 'toaster'. When he lost the license for Eric's he opened another club somewhere in Liverpool where he got back to his roots by booking acts like Bo Diddley and Jr Walker.

    I think Ruperts may have been a London thing, they was nothing like POW or Dogtooth, material or patten.
    They was very light weight material, Pastel colours with a feint check a subtle POW patten, These was very cheap trousers, would fall apart after a couple of weeks and went out of fashion by the end of the summer
    These trousers are fairly important as it was a transition period, moving away from stay-prest.
    I have mentioned these trousers before, later skinheads had heard or read we wore Ruperts and assume they are the Noddy Holder loud bright check, which they was not,
    I know Harry who gets on here knows what iam on about.


    I know what you mean Roy. The ruperts that some wear these days are far to bright. The ones i think you are refering to are made by Everprest, Quite subtle but more striking than POW. But definatly not garish like bright red or yellow like i have seen in the past.

    Ones i have had are bottle green with a subtle black blue and white pin check. The Everprest ones were straight cut like a conventional sta prest trouser. Mostly a latter Skinhead garment, as in 1970/71.

    The ones Noddy Holder and other artist wore were flared and very bold check.

    If they are the ones that I found on the Net,I would not have worn them-they were made out of Polyester(irritates my Skin).`70/`71, I was definitely buying my Strides down the "Cut".

    I found him to be a bit of a curmudgeon actually. Interesting guy, but not someone you'd warm to.

    ask him to do an 8-4-2 (as in clipper settings)

    so front is the "8" (longer, about inch and half", top is a "4" (maybe .5" or so), back is tapered to a #2

    Funny, I used to tell my barber, back in the day, "Make it the same length all over".

    I might have to try that MoM, probably will if GetSmart's suggestion doesn't turn out too great on me.

    What length would that be on the sides though?

    ^^ surely you dont need a blueprint for the entire head. i think your barber will be able to figure out how to do the sides to make it look consistent with rest of you, but it's gonna be like a #2 tapered up to the 4 or thereabouts
