    I know this is a horrible generalization, but I've always felt that skinheads down in LA were always pretty aggressive and seemed to be looking for fights What I'm wondering is if things are still that way down there? Are there still a lot of fights going on at clubs? (And to be fair, I heard a year or so ago up here in the Bay Area that new skinheads were hanging out at soul nights and starting fights with people, including the older, mellowed-out skinheads.)
    nothings changed. it's either WP types looking for trouble, or so called "anti-racist skinheads" looking for the same trouble. Tho tbh I think there is a lot less WP skin problems and actually more problems related to "anti racists". still too many in the skin scene that use it as a way of furthering their gang culture mentality [​IMG]

    GS, Do you know if the JtG solovairs fit any different than DM Forlife? The reason I ask is because here you said solovair fit ½ size larger than DM.

    ^^ yea, IME doc marten fit small, about half size. Solovair fit true, to me.

    If I get same size in DM as Solovair, my toes are crunched up at front and I cant walk very far. But i know people who think DM is TTS, but I've NEVER found doc marten to fit true. (always a bit small)

    same goes with For Life. I got mine same as my DM size, which is 1 size larger than my Solovair size

    Haha, I wear 10US in dress shoes, My DMs were 9UK and they fit decent (probably slightly big).
    I want to get a pair of the JtG 8eyes since I just got my refund from DM, but they are out of 9UK and I am trying to decide if I can fit in an 8UK.

    Damn you must really want those 8eyes if you're thinking about getting them a size smaller than your usual size. From my experience: Stick to your size otherwise it's just a waste of money(believe me I know :/)

    That's probably why there isn't much shows happening in LA lately(or since last year). Unless if you mean those backyard gigs. I never go to those and don't plan to but I hear that there's always some drama there. Most of the venue shows I've been to didn't have drama(or at least it wasn't happening where I was throughout the night). Most of the good shows have moved to Long Beach or Pomona or just elsewhere in CA(I saw Ill Repute in Pomona in 09' [​IMG] and my friend said he saw Iron Cross there ). I remember seeing Blitz at the Knitting Factory-Hollywood in 07'. So glad I got to see them before Alan "Nidge" Miller passed away.

    You have no idea. I have had so many problems with DM and I just got my refund after waiting for it. JTG says they won't have the boots in a 9uk until sometime mid to late february, I considered grabbing a pair from williamlennon I am just not sure yet.

    toyed with going to that show, but "Blitz" with only Nidge in the band didnt really appeal to me. Too bad about his sudden death tho.

    Iron Cross played Pomona??? (I'm assuming Glass House or Fox Theatre)....I must have been asleep when that happened, never knew they played...but then I have the same feeling about Iron Cross in 2010 as I do Blitz....[​IMG]

    If they[williamlennon] have them then you should go for it. It's best to get them while they're in stock. I'm still waiting til JTG or Warrior bring in new shipment for their sta prest trousers(I'm usually a 34 waist but many have told me to size up once or twice if I plan to get their sta prest trousers). They won't have any until Mid February [​IMG]

    I was told Iron Cross played at ANGELO'S Pizza(it's right across the block from the Glasshouse). Another good and memorable show I went to was Youth Brigade with 7 Seconds and Swinging Utters in 09'(I went for 7 Seconds for the most part and a lil for YB). People were flying off stage left and right and the pit was wild, 80s old school status! Something like this:

    Quite a few skinheads showed up but no drama whatsoever [​IMG] .

    Something just crossed my mind. We had been talking about shoes (from the Squire Shop), and the term we had been using was 'smooths'. Back in the day we called them 'Royals', rightly or wrongly.

    Ah - I have it playing now - It's modern skins, but I like the multicultural aspect. Thumbs up!

    right. Royals was the brand right? I know the brogues were often called "Royals" as well. I've seen a pair of smooths that were made by Royal. And Loake calls their American longwing the "Royal", I'm sure as a reference/homage to said Royals of your time.

    that's the video companion to George Marshall's book "Skinhead Nation". I still keep in touch with couple of those guys shown in NYC. Met Pan(at 1:05) back in the early 90s, he and his crew pretty much ran out every nazi skinhead in Portland. And ironically I also know the guy he's referring to when he says he got cut in the face by him, "from the Lemonheads", as he's a local Socal fellow. I did appreciate that they had Paul Burnley on to sort of represent "his side". I dunno why he looks like he's trying to be incognito, since it's not like anyone into the new breed of skinhead/oi doesnt know who he is.
