"The Parka and scooter mods had all but passed on by the time I was able to afford mod styling, in fact any clothing at all. Around 1968-69, we were into the suped-up anglias, cortinas and imps, therefore did not require Parkas. We were the second…"
"My parka isn't an m51 or m65, it's not german or a fishtail, it was made in china and was bought from Matalan. However, it was a christmas present from my dad and I love it! Living in the sunny Lancashire means I have been wearing it most…"
"I´m kind of biased about parkas to be honest. I have two of them, an M51 and a M65 that I bought when I was young. They´re not very stylish and I really prefer a nice overcoat or similar in the cold...that being said- living in Sweden…"
"Yes, Nick Waterhouse. I´ll probably get me tickets for end of May; I think MG member Hennich already got his. Was a bit put off by his Buddy Holly look initially, but the music´s real great. Why not come over to Münster…"

Also got lifted at the Gathering of the Clans with Big Chris McRea (R.I.P.) & a whole host of others on that infamous night!
Now I work as a teacher of English as a foreign language, here in the Czech Republic, where a beer costs less than a quid!
My website is noted below - any of you want English lessons, please call me - And judging by some of the written English on this forum - a lot of you could be doing with it! LOL!
Hi guys. Sorry I aint been around much - been a bit busy.
yes Bobby, I did indeed go around with Gownie, Chris & Shughie, And we do know each other. No I didn't move to Pollok though I did live with a burd in Pollokshields when I was doing stand up with the Funny Farm. Then I went to Uni & ended up in the Czech Republic via Germany, Austria, Hungary & Lithuania.
