Great tune cool clib Tanx.
It got a bit stymied along the way (pressure of other crap building up), but I'm returning to it.

Chelsea fans are frisked and their boots checked for steel toe caps by a copper before the Chelsea v Arsenal league game at Stamford Bridge. 27th May 1969 - Jim Henshall
This is the first time i've used one of these thread things.Learning how to use it still.Will read all the way through before I comment again.
cool,thanks for the update M.O.M.
I was at that game, but it was in September 1969/70 season, The hight of the London skinhead fashion.
The pic could also be Chelsea v Arsenal April 69, 68/69. season.
By May 27th the season had ended.
Useless information .I know
Yep, they had proper breaks in the old days...
I watched Man United v Ajax (S.Africa) on MUTV yesterday and the Scottish pre-season stuff is already in full swing.
There were some pretty good American Oi bands in late 80'early 90's. The Bruisers, Anti-Heros, Forced Reality, The Press. My favorite though was the UK punk and Oi of late 70's early 80's. I kinda hated how the hardcore scene, esp Slapshot, turned punk into a scene of jocks with varsity jackets singing about how evil beer is.
I feel Oi influenced Hardcore(US)I went to shows early 80's and there are a lot of negatives associated with the scene,best band I saw wasn't straight edge or shaved heads(in fact they were 16 year old drunks)Gang Green.American hardcore was a departure from punk in some ways and oi seemed a continuation of original punk.Your right about the jock association.The hardcore bands were suburban working class jocks also influenced by Heavy Metal.I imagine the Originals would be apalled at this wing of skinhead and they would be justified.Very exciting when your 15 on the outside looking in.
What happened if you were caught with steel toe boots? Did they simply deny you entry or did you have the option of leaving them somewhere and going in barefoot?
Tales would abound of people caught in 'steelies' and charged with the offence of being in 'Possession of an offensive weapon' - but I never met anyone that happened to. (Mind you, when 'they' had you, they were often keen to see if they could nick you for something else.)
You would be sent away from the venue/football ground etc, with threats ringing in your ears of '...gerrem-off' and 'if I catch you in those again...' ringing in your ears.
It was (initially) a bit of a game for most of us - and that includes the coppers, too.
