    Yep Tarten was popular at the time, for some fcuked up reason , Lads would wear Scottish tarten hats with a bobble on. It was a time when the Jocks would play England every other year at Wembley. They would take over the West End of London for the weekend.
    Mind you as their couches came through Kilburn on the way to the West End after the match. We always gave em a welcome with a few Bricks through the couch windows, Just to let em know, The Kilburn Aggro Mob was about. :D

    This was the Sottish hat that was worn at the time, worn by my mate Mark.

    Looks to be an early 70s digital watch. One of the black face ones that light up in red with the numbers, if anyone remembers them. Adfain they were popular at the time.

    Wasn't the tartan thing started by Rod and The Faces, very early 70s, a bit before the glam thing?

    Did any of you originals ever have a feather cut?:happy: Great barnet that.....

    Rod Stewart , had a massive influence on the then out growing Skinheads in London, The tartan thing did come from him, he was a Londoner into football,..would wear tartan scarfs etc, so lads copied him, Some had the Rod stewart hair cut , which myself and me mates thought looked a bit stupid.

    By the way MoM, how was the Stax night with Cropper and Duck-Dunn?
    Would have loved to have gone but had no chance mid-week.

    It was pretty good. 'Er indoors and the daughter loved it too. Eddie Floyd was great - a set of his own songs plus Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, and Otis Redding songs. Duck & the Colonel plus drums & organ played a string of Booker T hits.

    If you look close enough (click on the pic), you'll notice that this abomination the kid on the left is wearing is not a shirt, it's a denim jacket with a tartan thingy sewn on it. Underneath it, it looks like he's got a conventional checkered button down.
    If it wasn't for the tartan crap and the huge turnups, he'd look more or less like a normal skin from 3 or 4 years before, I guess.
    His friend though, looks like a biker ate a skinhead and threw it up. Actually, he reminds me of some early US hardcore skins. Imagine him with a Cause For Alarm backpatch and he wouldn't be out of place at an Agnostic Front gig at CBGB's circa 1984.

    Lovely turn of phrase!

    Talking of eccentric clothing, the bod behind them is wearing a set of white bib-and-brace overalls.
