    Nice one Bazza. Funny thing is, I've still not grown out of it yet. I still dress the same as I did back in the 80s. Even when I go to the shops or the football, I still wear the rockabilly clothing.

    Regarding the fairs, I'm watching Youtube vlogs every day. They'll be a dozen vlogs on Ilkeston Fair this weekend. I still get the buzz from Fairs.

    I'm a lot older now, but I can't see me ever changing.

    Apologies if I'm repeating myself Gaz, but the rockerbilly style still lends itself to the older bloke whereas, as an old '60s mod, I can truthfully say that age doesn't benefit the more flashier mod fashions that I see men of a certain shape, usually between the ages of 50-60, who simply weren't about town in 1965, frequently turning out in nowadays.

    Oh Aye Frank. It happens on the rock 'n' roll scene too. Women over the age of 50 of a certain shape, wearing full circle skirts covered in sequins, accompanied with white ankle socks is a big gripe of mine.

    I drove over to Clifton to visit Doug this morning Gary, arriving in time to hear the music of Eden Kane blasting-out from his cd-player as I entered the house.

    He's loving your recent visual contributions such as the one above.

    Hey Frank, Get Lost....

    Was a Eden Kane tune I'd often hear on the fairground. We often have an Eden Kane tune or two playing in our house too.

    Thanks for sharing my contributions with Doug, much appreciated.

    The funniest ones are the modern scooter "lads" 50+ in age and waist size with tight trousers, braces holding them up with a white t shirt struggling under the strain and a poor 125 scooter that groans when they mount it. Most can't ride for shit either as they oass a CBT but don't display an L plate.

    If you're wanting to have a good browse in the flesh... London Boots (located opposite Nott'm Post building) is the place. The downside is you pay top dollar for their gear. www.londonboots.com

    The biker boots I buy are Marlon Brando style 'Grinders engineer boots'. I always buy them off eBay, if you know your size, you'll find them a lot cheaper than Londonboots.
    If you need websites or any questions, feel free to ask.

    Was talking to my barber last week, he plays in bands and likes his early punk and garage (pre-punk not D&B) and he said he just couldn't understand kids nowadays, after a bit of back and forth we decided that it's because there is no youth cultures anymore, just a mess of tik tokers all looking and doing the same stuff, that and the fact they're all fucking boring too.

    Absolutely this.

    I guess I was lucky, but when I was a youth, punk came along and kicked music square in the balls, and then came reggae and Ska, three genres I embraced wholeheartedly and love to this day.

    Then you had the whole metal thing, then grunge, and you’d got a fascinating selection of cultures right there.

    Now, it’s all pre-packaged generic shite, and when I consider what was around in my youth, compared to what is pushed at my daughters‘ generation, it’s really sad.

    So, I’ve taken it upon myself to impress on her some proper tunes, so when we are about it’s often The Clash, Dead Kennedys, Minutemen, Specials, Bob Marley, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Soundgarden, Pixies, The Jam, Motörhead, anything but that current modern manufactured rubbish.

This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    That said, I’m currently chilling to the dub reggae sounds of King Tubby, with a Bier, so take what I say with a pinch or two of salt.
