    Can't even recall "We'll Be With You", but certainly know "Blue Is the Colour", and I did like that one. Living in Bristol at the time, I do recall a couple of ones by Rovers and City. There was "One For The Bristol City" with The Wurzels, and I know the Rovers did something really bad that had Rod Hull and Emu on it. Gas heads may have liked it though, possibly.

    Was looking at that "Back Home" single again, noticed the producers names "Martin and Coulter". Now they were the one's responsible for most of the Bay City Rollers crap, "Shang-a-Lang", etc.


    I'll just leave this here...

    Can't recall it, but then I didn't get over that way very often.

    I regularly find wool Pantherellas at discount shops for the same price. Selection being the downside.

    When I was a kid I remember people saying 'it looks like a monkey jacket on you' implying a jacket was too short: a reference to barrel organ monkeys in their short jackets.

    Hello, i am a 55 year old bloke from Bristol ,i came online looking for a pair of longwing brogues (still looking) and found this thread.
    I have read the thread right through (finished yesterday) and its been a brilliant few days,brought back so many memories.
    In work we have conversations about the clothes and shoes in the 60s/70s and how much more stylish and smarter people where then.
    I still wear some of the same style of clothes that i wore in 1970/71,i was only 12 or 13 then i didnt get a suit or a crombie (i had a crombie later on).
    One item mentioned was steel combs,i had forgotten all about them,we called the girls ones "rat tails" (the ones with a spike for a handle).
    A funny coincidence is that i remember pressuredrop on here from school (he must have been 2 years above me) he always looked very smart and we wanted to copy him and his mates style.
    I look about me now and see so many scruffy gits (not only youngsters either) it can be a bit depresssing,its good to have found some people with a smarter attitude.

    Welcome, mate.

    Yes, the steel comb was part of the kit - and blokes had the ones with the pointy handles too I recall!
