Peoples History Of Pop ( Tribal Gatherings 76-85)

BBC4 last night. I know that this is the type of prog that all here will like and relate to in some way. Music and sub- cultures that most of us liked or were into during our yoof.
Check it out on the iplayer, well worth the look.

Yeah, we taped it, sounds good, great period for pop, that realisation anyone can do it so just do it.

Recorded Boy George's documentary on BBC2 last night, looks right interesting.

Boy George's documentary was pretty good too.
What he and others did back in the 70's was pretty mental and brave with it. Dressing as they did and being gay with it and not caring was waiting for a kicking every time you left your house back then.

Yes, I agree, I think old Georgie Boy could look after himself as well though.

Watched the one about Skinheads on Friday. Don Letts and Pauline Black were excellent.

Made a brave stab at examining the contradictions of skinhead culture, from the adoption of Ska by the mods in the sixties to the 'Oi' stuff in the 80s.

Jimmy Pursey (who I always thought was a bit of an arse) came across ok as well. Although he waved his arms about too much. NF skinheads effectively ended Sham 69 by wrecking their gigs.

I don't think it really drew any conclusions and Don went away scratching his head. Or his hat anyway.

I've got this on the Sky+. Looking forward to watching it. Pauline Black always looks natty doesn't she. I keep meaning to read her autobiography.

I enjoyed this but not as much as the Boy George one which had a stronger theme than this 'tribes' one.  Have to say though that not only is Pauline Black a great singer & performer, she seems perfectly adept at presenting a documentary too.  What a doll and what diction

Watched the Skinheads docu last night. I enjoyed it. Some great footage from the original era and I was pleasantly surprised at how much time was given over to the origin of the clothing fashions of choice. Shame about how it got hijacked with all that that Oi bullshit and bellends like Skrewdriver. I'd have to agree with Jimmy Pursey when asked by Don if he thought that Skinhead could ever be seen again for what it originally stood for, his answer was in the negative. Because the Far-Right have totally fucked up any possible chances of credibility and wider understanding of this particular subculture. As the Welsh lad from SHARP said "There is a difference between Skinheads and Boneheads."

Totally inspired and got my Desmond Dekker and ska cds on in the car.

Great prog. Brought back many memories of my yoof.  Seeing gangs of skins gathered in seaside resorts whilst scootering around the country.  Lots were what we used to call Trojan skins. As in the record label, Trojan.  
But the ones who stood out and scared the fuck out of us were the nasty Nf, knuckle , draggers. Just totally intimidating to most they crossed. Mainly intent on causing trouble in one way or another.
