Some observations:

pic 2 - blimey, thnat's Jordan? Young Katie must be older than we think. She had better fashion sense back then.

pic 3 - Christian F is a "heroine addict"? So she started on a bit of Tess of the D'Urbervilles, got on to Jane Eyre, before she knew it she was on to Anna Karenina and the hard stuff...

I bet the bunch in pic 13 are now teachers, civil servants, bank managers etc. and tut when they see a "young person" with weird fashions.

And doesn't that bloke in pic 14 look like Sting?

A nice wander through memories..and yes, accountants, the lot of them.......

and that MUST be Sting.

It's 1981 in that pic, though - on second thoughts I think Sting's barnet was more bouffant by then.

I was at Buzzcocks concerts circa 1976-78..they did a gig in Manchester in 1997...soooo funny how we all had changed....those jackets just didn't fit hard as some tried.....

I was in short trousers during punk. I think someone did once come to school with a safety pin through his earlobe. On second thoughts it may have been a paperclip.
