    Went to a live Mowtown night, with a bunch of mates, about 26 years ago and Marv Johnson did Rose for my Rose - great stuff.
    We went to chat to him at the stage door afterwards.
    He looked at us and in his husky yank accent said "Hey ... skinheads".
    I've got the poster I knicked on the way out somewhere with his signature on.

    Heard the expression: '...no show without Punch?'

    I'll probably stay over. (I get too pissed to do trains and wouldn't dream of driving... even the following day.) :embar:

    Nothing if not honest... i am, it's been said, a moderately entertaining drunk, mind.

    No falling about, no filth, and no nastiness - but a bugger who still reckons he can pull the birds... despite more knock-backs than Quasimodo. :satisfied:

    Reading your conversations from last night it was not just reggae we listened to. Tamla was very important and it had romantic undertones and emotion. Some chart music of the time was very popular too. Spirit in the sky and All right Now were great pulsating records.

    After being on this thread a few weeks there is certainly a genuine and respectful camaraderie on a subject that’s over 40 years old with input from people all over the country talking of similar experiences. I am quite stunned as the comments being made we could have all been in the same town at that time of what we did, wore and listened to!! I enjoy reading the comments made as they are smack on and you would only know this if you were around at the time – you cannot read experience – you have to be part of that experience.

    It was interesting reading last night of the different order of values to gang members of back then. Our gang were a pretty wild lot so status was high among the alpha male aspect. Fights did occur between ourselves but as it was all over the next day and beat of pals again. Clothes had to be right or you did not fit in, while some of you guys the attention to dress detail was / is high and I personally appreciate that now after 40 years because I want to recall and not forget those times as they were exactly and not what I may have thought they were.

    Girlfriends were important and you had certain nights you would not see them as it was lads only nights. If something kicked off when you were with your girl on her night you were really gutted as you did not want to miss out on anything happening. We used to be out every night. Amazing when you thing back that after paying Mum her housekeeping everything else was yours to spend on yourselve – clothes, beer, records and girls

    York sounds interesting but unfortunately short notice for me this time. I will see if I can get down to Margate in July – I have seen various photos on web and it looks a mix of original 1969 skinheads and later times. From what I can make out was last year your first meeting of the thread at York. It certainly shows that when face to face contact is made the posting conversation and banter becomes clearly more relaxed and beneficial to readers
