"Well it served them right for picking on and harrassing a couple of strangers for no reason Al. We did not have much tolerance for skins and thankfully for them we never saw any at the various gigs we attended at the time. Towards the end of our Mod…"

"Here its weird. There's the Racist skins, then there's the anti-racist skins who go picking fights with the racists and anyone who doesn't agree with them starting fights with them amongst others. I personally don't agree with racism, but I'm not go…"

"I think you may be right there Scott. There was certainly a few skins that hung around the various schemes of Glasgow back in the early 80s, but in comparison to Mods the numbers were negligible. Places such as Motherwell, Airdrie, and maybe down in…"

"We certainly did not get on in the early 80s, but then there is no doubt at all that a lot of skins here were racists. All you needed for proof was to look at the graffitti on any of the shops in schemes or walls. It was all skins and nf or bm. I kn…"

French Boutik and The Most - Paris 27Nov2015:

Memorial day for the events of 13th November, countless Tricolours graced balconies and other improvised available spaces, armed police stood in groups on corners outside cafe's; aside from that Paris got on with its main business - enjoying life. La Mechanique Ondulatoire is a regular live music venue (24 days out of the 30 available in November) tucked away in a side street and occupying three floors with the live music space in the cellar, a very cavern-esque setting with exposed stone arch walls, the stage at one end and bar at the other. They also have a generous happy-hour with two cocktails for 10Euro, so the scene was nicely set.
