1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    But on the other hand, if you want to know what tunes were heard and danced to in the skinhead clubs in 1969, it was exactly those 'boring' ones.

    I was at a revival 'do' last February, and although the music was good, in its own way (except it made conversation difficult), I didn't recognise a single record played.

    ...but we do (recognise them... well at least I guess so, I wasn't there of course) :D That's why so many british DJ's like playing in mainland europe... couldn't believe people knew and sang along the tunes word for word.

    Your generation where the best when it was about the clothes.. but we win the musical punchout! (and you have to remember Jim Cox played a big part in our current favorites).

    Favorite (for the lads that is), and a tune that wouldn't be popular if not for Jim Cox.

    'If I only have a little education, i would a run down the whole police station, i would warn off sergeant major generation.' They where lyrical rebels back in the 60s, pre-punk, pre-gangster rappers :slayer way ahead of it's time... while the rest of the world was singing love songs.

    ^ Not so ahead of its time. Could say the same about any folk music I expect. Whiskey in the Jar, Down by the Glenside, Fields of Athenry for example.

    Just joking about the musical punchout ;) The only thing I wanted to point out is that I think the JA music selection is better nowadays.

    Well, it is and it isn't. It all depends what you're trying to do.

    ^ It's a bit like that skinhead/northern soul advert posted above, feels like retro to an alternative past. A skinhead steampunk where skinhead had something more than a passing connection to 1969 chart music or, in the case of the advert, where skinhead continued to evolve through the early-mid 70s clothing styles/colour palette (the floppy purpleness of it).

    Yes a kind of skinhead uchronia. The same happened with 80s skins, like if they continued to evolve to the contemporary sinister Gabber skins (not sure you heard of them before, you find them in the north of France, Belgium, and Netherlands), who replaced Oi by techno.

    My God, just googled gabber skinhead and saw blokes mixing the very worst of late 80s shellsuits into the very worst of late 80s skinhead. Earlier I had a go at imagining an alternate skinhead 80s to get all retro on and all I could come up with was a big-shouldered Armani ma1 and 501 jeans (what irony!) with Gucci 14 hole boots and Big Hair!

    I don't believe it! There was a question on Northern Soul on tonight's University Challenge!

    I got stopped today by an old bloke who was talking to me about the way I dress. He must have felt very nostalgic. [​IMG]

    It was the 'music question'. The starter was something like, "Identify the two word phrase by which this style of American music is known in Britain" (dead easy - 'Northern Soul' - got it before any of the brainboxes). Then there were three follow-up questions where you had to name the singer. I got two out of three, and I'm rather proud of that, in view of the fact that I don't follow NS all that closely.

    The 'Beagle ears' of the early 70s weren't quite as long, but had the same kind of flare-back.
