    nothing new to offer??? hahahaha... for you "originals" it was just a short living fashion and you left it all behind in 71 and even nearly forgot about it, till you found some "new" skinheads on the internet and got a platform for your old stories.. here or on any other skinhead group/page made by "revivalist kids" like the ukskinheads board or a lot of skinhead facebook groups...
    these so called "revivalist kids" made a way of life out of your short living fashion, formed their own bands, brands, labels, etc and this is the reason why you still can go out to northern soul, ska and reggae do´s in 2013 and dont have to sit at home all alone with nobody interested in your old stories...
    i´m sick of your posts that all none originals or all none londoners are scruffy and this "skinheads only happened once and only in london" shit...
    you guys (especially you roy, cause i never heard this from any of the other originals on here) should be a bit more grateful that you can share stories of your past and that we young ones keep this thread goin with our interest and our questions.. we young ones really appreciate these stories from the past, and so you also should be happy that there are skinheads today, you still can hang out with and share your stories with... cause without us nobody would care about you, or your "once happened skinhead fashion" anymore, when you are gone some day... just my 2 cents... and now back to topic.. ;)


    We will never fade and die whatever you try to do
    We're the first of today and the last of tomorrow

    I left school in '79 and became a skinhead as a result of the 2 Tone explosion. That and having a gang of scooter riding mates who where either mods or skinhead.

    I was one of a number of skinheads that dressed sharply, and where as meticulous with our attire as budget would allow. I had a blue/bronze tonic suit, crombie, loafers, brogues, Ben Sherman shirts and Fred Perry polos. Believe me, we where not in the slightest but scruffy. I was also into The Jam as well though, from before the "mod revival", and my style evolved more along the mod style. I moved away from the skinhead look as politics creaped in.

    It was an easy transition as the main differance at the time between skinhead and mod was a couple of inches of hair.

    In retrospect I realise that the style of dress we adopted at that time was influenced by the styles of the mid to late 60s ie the period when mod was evolving into skinhead.

    And Lasttye, no offence, but my generations experience of being skinheads/mods is every bit as relevant as yours. It was every bit as "real".

    Every now and again ek77/Spilla you come on here with a dig...what the fcuk do you know about British working class from any period...what do you know how we lived ,our sense of humour...you are German for fcuk sake...You can never understand.

    This thread is about Skinheads 68/71....can you not see that mate.

    Spilla everything you say means jack shit to me. what the fcuk do you know about 60s Britain...This thread is not only about Skinheads its also about British social History.

    Stafford was really a mod town,and the transition from mod on through,though accepted,was not taken on in every aspect by everyone.The girls haircuts was one area that the "severe" crop was not universally adopted.There was a couple of Girls who stood out.Tina G and her mate Gina T.They used to follow the Wolves and hang out with the Temple St crew I believe.They emulated the lads in every way,rarely wearing skirts,cropped hair,DM's and always with a sneer!
    I liked the girls,but never really liked that hard look on them.I think that they took it on primarily because they were girls that were in the minority,in that they followed the Football ,which most girls didn't?

    As someone who came late to this thread,I would second those comments.It is the fact that it is focused on a specific tperiod in history that it is so appealing to me.I have no interest,admiration or inquisitiveness about any of the somewhat related sub-cults that followed.If I did,I would seek out a thread that focused on that or start one.

    yeah, but only every now and then when you come up with the same old shit about how original you are and everyone else isnt...
    and your answers are still the same old shit, that i´m german and cant understand, blablabla...
    funny thing is that you were the one that wanted to come over to one of our skinhead do´s in oberhausen/germany, cause you liked the pix i have posted on the uk skinhead group...
    i know that i´m german, but who the fuck are u to tell me that i can never understand?? you were a fashion skinhead for like a minute back in the days... so who cares what you have to say...
    btw, alot of the british "not original" skinheads on the old uk skinheads board or even facebook laugh about you and your stories on here too... cause you are always there with your big mouth, but nobody of them ever have seen a single skinhead pic of you... so don´t they understand it as well????.

    edit: and btw roy, not a single word to any of the facts i´ve posted above. like always the only replycoming from you are insults....

    I think the youngsters coming up provide a healthy element to any style,but talking of music,until there is something much better that comes along and stands the test of time,then there will always be an audience for it.I do not think "revivalists" have been responsible for the continuation of Northern Soul,but I am sure they have been a welcomed shot in the arm.Looking at the Black Bee video is very encouraging.

    You are the one getting personal Spilla, I am just hitting back with your comments...also if you want to get personal....when you come over to London look me up...rather than slag me off behind a keyboard...

    Also many of the people that get on this thread I have met and see often including a few Germans that get to doos....And no one has ever came up to me with a negative comment.

    Yes i was gonna come over to Oberhausen until I learned that you like to be the centre of attraction The Fuhrer of the Oberhausen Skinheads. :D

    You really are a bitter nasty cnut Spilla...Yes i am pro German always have been, I have had the privilege as a Paratrooper to have shared the same Aircraft on Parachute jumps with German Fallshirmjagers over the years.

    You really are a horrible example of a German. Are you one of those guilt ridden self hating Germans...Have you no respect for the sacrifice of all those young Germans who died in that awful War between European brothers.

    Thats the last i reply to your digs Spilla.

    Gsvs5 If you are talking about Tina from Wolverhampton I knew her well ...She and her mates would come down Chelsea...She was a beautiful tall blond girl, the first girl i ever saw wearing Boots and Braces like the blokes...she would also get stuck in with the Lads,:D

    I have often spoken about her..I wonder where she is now.:)

    haha, you are the one that started that shit again and i just replied.. cause it is always you talking shit about the skinhead revival, even if you missed it and just found out that there are still skinheads around a couple of years ago....
    i never heard anything bad like this from any other one of the old skinheads on here... cause all the other members on here act like british gentlemen...
    you are the one that always want to be in the centre, when you telling everyone that you never have seen this or that back in the days, or when you comment any pix.. this is not original or this was never seen in london... or this suit isnt right.. or it must be a northern thing and all of them look scruffy... even if other old ones tell you that they have seen it or also posted pix of it... and all you can offer us is the one old wedding pic of you...
    just scroll back and read some of your arrogant comments if you wont believe... a bit more self assessment would be ok for you too.. no one else but you is trying to be the skinhead führer of this group... and this is exactly the reason why other skinheads laugh about you....



    bitter and nasty cunt?? horrible example for a german?? so you still wanna tell me that i take it personal??? you are just a keyboard warrior and internet big mouth.. yes, you still can come over and be my guest on one of our do´s and we can talk about it man to man... fair deal?? but if you wanna threaten me, use the pm and dont post pathetic threats on here, cause this personal shit dont belong to this group.....

    btw, again nothing constructive from your side to my posted facts... like always...

    If it's the same girl she was from Stafford.last name was Gulliver.Skinny like a toothpick.Tasty.
    Last time I spoke to her was on the train back to Stafford after the Stafford Rangers game at Wembley,early '70's.If I ever contact my Sister up there I will ask her.She knows them both.

    Some moderation is needed. This thread is out of order in my humble opinion.

    Quote: This is wandering off topic but I have to say that's total horseshit. There's been reggae and soul dances happening for donkeys years without any 'skin' involvement. Look at the best crews currently playing revival reggae in Europe (are you German? In which case check Thundering Vibration or the Reggae Twins for example, Or the Dirty Dozen crew in Austria) they're not skins - they may attract skins to their dances but they ain't skins. Same with soul. These music scenes happily continued for years without skinheads and its just plain wrong to suggest they only survive now because of the support of a new generation of skins.

    Anyway i'm off now to go to the London International Ska Festivals 'Sound System Special' in honour of the great Duke Vin. This will be a great night of revival sounds drawn by renowned UK soundmen who have playing for years. There will be skinheads there but they'll mostly be either dancing like clowns (this is how people danced to ska: ) - not that stupid goat milking rubbish or the jerky sub Madness bollocks that nearly all modern skins seem to do) and tutting when someone plays a record made after 1971.



    Nice video McDermott. Liked that.
