I know exactly where I was when I first heard The Jam - Going Underground and it wasn't sat at home watching TOTPS. We all looked at each other and went "What the f%$£!" as the whole (youth) club erupted into a skanking frenzy. Loafers, brogues, boots etc with white terry towelling socks, tight trousers and jeans, fred perrys and shetland wool jumpers all over the place. And let me tell you the best of the best wore Terry's socks at the time, everyone did. I'm going to stand up and say I'm proud of my era, we made mistakes like anyone else but boy did we make our presence felt. Not your few hundred or couple of hundred at the scooter runs as you had in the past or present but thousands of us! Who can forget Scarborough 1980, from 1978 - '84 there's not many photo's of youngsters getting manhandled by the authorities then, I can tell you and we parked where we bloody well liked. Time to reminisce '79ers and start pulling out the good bits of which there were many to be proud.
