Welcome cerneabbas.We could use a Bristol perspective.
A gert big welcome, from one Bristolian to another
One big Bristolian lovefest going on here! Welcome Cerneabbas (big fella are you ?) So what house were you in? Nicholas? Hancocks? Smiths?
Thanks for the welcome,i ts a bit strange but having read through the thread i already know some of your ideas and thoughts so its almost like you are not total strangers.
Well done on the cerne abbas deduction Chris,i like to think i am... haha. moneys house.
Going back to the steel comb,i wonder if anyone can remember a poster (A 3 size ?) given away in a comic of a cartoon skinhead,wearing boots,jeans with turn ups,a steel comb in his back pocket stood next to a milestone pointing to bovver ?
I cant remember the name of the comic but i remember having the poster on the bedroom wall.
Also can anyone remember the song "skinheads" by Fred Wedlock ? i tried to explain it to a 27 year old that i work a few weeks ago,after explaining what a skinhead was,what a parking meter was,what fruit gums were....i gave up.
Some Original Skinheads from Liverpool discuss 'Como' shoes. Are these the 60s version Solatios? I think that's what is being described here -
Was asking around about the wearing of blazers around our way back in the day - it missed us. Suit jackets worn with different coloured sta-prest, but no blazers and badges though.
Mentioned this a few posts back. From 'Target' magazine circa 1972.
Welcome to the forum buddy. Is this Miles Wootton song the one of which you speak? For the younger '80s and younger set on here, the Last Resort reworked/plagiarised this as "Violence In Our minds":
Thanks for that Watermelon man,just shows how carefully i read the thread !
I have to say that Target does not ring any bells with me,the poster was obviously what i bought the magazine for,sad but i was about 13.
I saw earlier in the thread someone put up a picture of some burgundy Pierre Cardin brogues,they are a longwing and are also in blue or tan,they are quite lightweight with a leather sole and are reduced to £70 in Pavers shoes (i saw them in Swindon outlet centre but they have a website).
Thats the song Botolph....listening to it took me back a long time,it must be over 35 years since i heard it last ! !
I had (and still have) Manchester City's 1972 single "The Boys in Blue". Composed by three members of 10CC - but obviously not one of their better efforts:
That has a ring of credibility to it - just the sort of thing your grandma might have come out with and her generation would have been familiar with barrel organ monkeys I'd guess.
Welcome, cerneabbas. Same vintage as me and I also first found the thread following up Royals ... agree with what you say about prevalence of scruffdom.
Thanks elwood,i have read your posts with interest because i followed football back then (only listen on the radio matchdays now).
Scruffs...i see too many blokes our age wearing jogging/sweat pants "cos theyre comfy" and cheap lidl/aldi trainers "cos theyre comfy"...the worst story i heard recently was when someone i work with went to a funeral and a bloke in his fifties turned up in a TRACKSUIT !
Or even worse, crocs! went to the North Somerset show yesterday and they had a stall there, the urge to burn it down was overwhelming
