I wasn't at the Acklam hall gig.I was one of the younger element,and whilst i started attending gigs in 82, that would have been a bit far for me.I stuck to north London ,the 100 club and such like.Yeah it's been a while mate but yeah we probably know some of the same people for sure. The mod geezer B was a big bloke from Stratford if memory serves me. I never got into Madness mainly as they were all Chelsea but l know the scene and film, yes the geezer in the signature Spurs Donkey Jacket possessed one myself back in the day with a little tin THFC badge. Those were the days. On the subject of West London Acklam Hall etc do you remember the trip to the Grove in 82 after QPR in the FA Cup final where every West London skin and their mom turned out to greet us?
Most of the faces i have mentioned i got to know in later years. Or are friends of friends.
A mate of mine is Spurs but knocked about with the lot that started following Secret Affair and then the Rejects .He has loads of great stories and photos.He could and should write a book about those times.
