    And me,Roy-well in The Limbo and the Roaring Twenties.Places like the Marquee did not sell Alcohol-just watered down Coke-I was 16 when I first went in there.Stayed clear of Church Hall Discos(as has been said too much Aggro).Though there was one that was held in Great Bookham Village Hall and there were no problems(I have written about this before),even though two Mobs were in attendance.

    All the time, Lads would split up and find a girl to link up with to get in, Bouncers was cnuts back then... bullies bullying around what was just kids, Now and again the bouncers would come unstuck, and get themselves a hiding.
    Their was a group of Bouncers around NW London that would Bounce in a few discos, One night they tried to throw one of the lads out, what they did not know it was full of Kilburn and Hendon, They got such a kicking that they was never seen bouncing on doors again, :D

    I remember in the late 70s,Doormen from the Tottenham Royal came to Ilford-got far as the" Room At The Top".Bouncers wanted to prove themselves-but a lot of the time they would hide,if real Aggro started.Dragged more than one out of the Toilets over the years!:)

    There was a pub over the road and a bit along from the Savoy Rooms in Catford. Some of us would go over there when we got fed up of drinking coke. We'd pop over for a light-and-bitter or something. The landlord eventually barred anyone who looked a bit skinhead-ish because a lot of the clientele at the savoy were under age to drink. I remember giving the barman an argument when he tried not to serve me and I did get served.

    From what I've read, the sharpies did begin before skinheads (late 50's even), but their style changed over time and by the late 60's they probably were influenced by skinheads coming in from the UK. These mid 60's sharpies look quite different from the 70's ones, who look like a strange mix between skinheads, glam and some sort of redneck.
    Also, there are newspaper articles from the early 70's about sharpies where they're called skinheads, which is another evidence of the UK influence on the cult over the years.
