    Amazing B sides

    Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already…

    What I bought today...

    Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…

    "Yeah the colour is great to me too Motown. If i thought it was a genuine European SS i think i would part of that long line you rightly point out. It would be a better investment than any stocks or shares."

    "It really does Chris, and at that price there'd be a long line to buy it too.
    Id always stick to a stock colour where possible but I do love that colour. There's a well known GS in that same grey. Tin soldier I think it's called :-)"

    "It looks the biz Motown but I think you may be right. It would be some bargain to get a genuine Italian or British SS in that shape for that money."

    "No Alan, it was off the peg, since I am pretty much stock size for UK slimfit styles. I'm sure the quality will be fine, and they do state that even ready-made suits are shipped in 14-18 days to be fair. I accepted that, but it's been a month now, a…"

    "Yes Graham, I`ve had a suit from them in the past, not bad quality either and yes my suit was semi bespoke and it took about 5 weeks, but they did tell me it would, so I wasn`t worried. I am assuming you ordered a semi bespoke from them?"

    Quadrophenia: Retrospective of a Cult British Classic

    The famous Brighton seafront. The pier resplendent in the August bank holiday sunshine. Waves crash onto the pebbles, failing to drown out the cries of anger and fear coming from further up the beach. Holidaymakers and families with young children hurry to escape two groups of young men, both dressed distinctively, hurling deckchairs and punches in each other’s direction. The police arrive, and the majority of the offenders are bundled into vans as peace is restored.
