That's easy 76, I had a checked jacket with two big buckles on it from C&A and my cousins hand me downs. 78, Levi's Hoodies, jeans and shoes. Shoes were fucking ace actually wish I had a pair of em now.

Some fantastic footage on that. Great gems such as XTC, Penetration, TRB, and right at the end Magazine. When the tape ended. Bastards. Forgotten how good some, nay ALL that music was. Not a bad track on there....

Only those who dream will someday see their dreams converted to reality

Tom Robinson was a bit of a good writer wasn't he? Lyrics for Glad to be gay, well impressive.

Just listening to The Clash's first LP, I never liked them back in the day, and it's purely down to Strummer's vocals, always sounded like he wanted to be american, put me right off.
