Right!! own up....

#1
The other day I was talking to a family friend, a chap of a somewhat fey and effete disposition.
He told me that back in his sudent days in the early eighties, he would don his Goth No. 1s before a night out in the Aldershot area. This rig would typically consist of the following:

1. Shock of Blue-black dyed hair, with a swatch of it covering his left eye.
2. Mascara.
3. Chain twixt nose and ear.
4. Black lipstick.
5. Skull earing.
6. Spiky collar.
7. East German Army jacket, CND crowfoot on the back, Soviet medals on the front.
8. Bauhaus tour T-shirt.
9. Cartridge belt.
10. Black drain pipe jeans
11. Combat boots, negative laces.

Unfortunately, he also suffered from severe acne, a condition which this look seemed to highlight.
Regrettably, he had a tendency to end up in Pubs frequented by young men with severe hair cuts, and with flying horses tatooed on their arms, who had a fondness for dessy wellies and maroon T-shirts.
I was saddened and disappointed to hear that he was cruelly used by serving members of HM Forces, who just didn't even attempt to understand the existential angst suffered by a sensitive young fellow studying Art in Thatcher's Britain.

All I want is some names. I don't care how you get them, but I want the offenders outside my office o six sparrow-f*ck tomorrow, ready for a frank and robust chat, negative tea and stickys. :evil:

Lets see, a serviceman in the Aldershot area during the early eighties. That'll narrow it down....

:wink:
All I want is people who remember putting the boot into a curled up, spotty goth, circa 1982, who are man enough to own up to it..

It wasnt me, to quote "Shaggy"
Although I do remember an incident in 1974 where a certain member of our school was thrown from a bridge into the Grand Union canal. Followed by his 4 brothers. Quite a splash :lol: That wasnt me either :wink: Believed now to be running a curry house, somewhere near Aunty Stella!!

Get im Bernie........ 8)

To be fair he was probably mistaken for being a Trog or a Fat Splasher

I take it you have had lessons in truthfulness and veracity by Alistair Campbell and the Neu Arbeit Party.

Too much information :wink:

Why do I keep thinking of Cilla Black sitting with this now 30-40 something man in a sofa turning to him and saying…
'Well Justin it's been 20 years and we know you never forgot them and here they are the boys from Aldershot who stretched your hoop back for a rematch!'
Cue applause and in troops 10 or so middle aged ex squaddies with big 'Oh we're going to go again!' grins on their faces??? :?

Beebs

There is a story about Lyndon Johnson: during one of his campaigns, he instructed his staff to spread a rumour that his opponent had been f*cking farmyard pigs. The staffers were appalled; "we can't go around saying that he f*cks pigs", they wailed. LBJ replied;" I don't care. I just want him to have to stand up in public and deny that he f*cks pigs."
Is that what you are trying to do to me, Auld Yin? :D
