    That would be a zighead then [​IMG], theres a few other clips on youtube of the band circa 75 with lowe wearing boots, jeans with turnups, early weller style haircut, denim jacket etc, its a bit of a wade and most of the tracks are crap, theres a couple of him playing in rockpile still wearing button downs, denim, bout 79 i think, just found it interesting sort of like a link between the period im interested in now and a time when music and fashion came on the radar for me if that makes sense. Thanks for all the welcomes

    Hi Mate - good to hear from you.

    Reading of the characters you obviously know, on here, there's no point in me advising you to stay away from bad company. :satisfied: :satisfied:

    Great to see so many original skinhead pics. Not to mention some of people posting here are original skins! Thats something I always wondered about as a skin in the US. What the original skins were really like, and how they dressed etc. Took 20 years but I can finally see now :) gotta love the internet LoL

    So did skins really develop from the mod scene? Was it 68-69?

    It started to develop in `67(we were still Mods)-with the no.4 on top,then progressed through to `69 when the Media called us Skinheads.

    Cheers.
    I weren't sure if there was any technical or gender relevance to this zipper thing. Seems it makes no odds.

    I think I stole it of this forum mate, Any cool pics I find I tend to put in one of my photo folders.

    I've read that 'Boys Story' novel, that another photo of that lad apperas on.
    It's a wee bit cheesy, but some of the clobber descriptions seem authentic.

    Except that the picture of me is from 1969.

    FWIW: just spent three hours reading all of the thread again... I'd missed so much when I originally skimmed the forum - brilliant stuff.

    Hello Basset - Great clip, thanks for posting. Brownie beat me to it with the Bowie/Skinhead quote, I was gonna say 'Aladdin Braces'. The following photos are not for the purists with a nervous disposition.......:D... Jesse Hector (Formerly of 60s bands The Way of Life, The Mod Section and Crushed Butler) Photographed in 1970 fronting the Hammersmith Gorillas. An ex Mod/Skinhead's look, more 'honest' than Slade's attempt I reckon. [​IMG] [​IMG] Building up a good collection of 'Mods in Front of Caravans' photos, a few more here-http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/pool/ Working on a 'Boot Boys'n'Bed and Breakfasts' collection too.
