Something For The Weekend Sir?

Recommended Posts

In Peterborough town centre today I called in at the music shop for some plectrums,fiddly swines get lost all the time)to get to the shop you have to go past the market on the way passing Square Cuts mens barbers my attention was captured by a bag in the window display it was one of those holdalls that are about with Northern Soul written on them in large letters,Tat in my book and nothing more than bandwagon make a fast buck commercialism.Next to the bag was a large framed photograph of the type barbers use showing different hairstyles,the big difference with this photo was the large printed title across the bottom of it that bore the legend "The Northern Soul", I presume this was referring to the style featured in the photo ,a short back and sides slightly longer on top fairly common oft seen haircut worn by lots of blokes.So theres now a hairstyle called "The Northern Soul",you can get one in Peterborough?What a load of tosh,what next to join photo and holdall in the window display to add" authenticity?" a pair of massive multi pocketed baggies covered in badges.Anyway if there was any sort of hairstyle that could be said to lay claim to the title these days surely its the "Baldie".Commercialism of the scene gone to far, not many.

My dad used to be a barber. In the 50s when blokes came in asking for 'Tony Curtis' he used to get the clippers out and give them a No 2 cut.

When (inevitably) they'd protest "That's not how Tony Curtis has his hair cut," dad would reply:

"He does if he comes in here..."

So that's a Norman Soul scare cut, the brekkie of wheat to move ya feet, Baggy clobber to hide family boxes of the class A wheat :hypo: , carbon friendly hemp & hessian niter bags, oooh then soul source vaginal dilator. Now I'm just waiting for the Ann Summers twisted Squeal butt plugs...guaranteed to stay put up yr butt and give an extra vibe when movin on a groove. Me I'm sticking with my original Stafford top of the world  underpants ( made out of pre shrunk fuzzy felt, yep I may get fluff in me belly button but its worth it :shades: . Where will it end Manus :dash2:

Kind regards Phil Micock

He started well for us Russoul ,the man had a great range he went from"We just cant get enough "very quickly to "We 've f in all had enough of tu tu tyrone Barnett!".First few games we all loved him, then he showed himself to be a right lazy barsteward,not one of our best signings,mind you if he had of been a consistent top scorer of the division playing scorchers every game without fail Mc Anthony would have got him sold for massive profit and off and out of the club very much faster like he did with Brit and Gayle.

Seriously is there a proper Northern Soul haircut (i've seen all styles, and no style on the scene). normally i just have a no.3.

I go for number 1 back and sides a bit longer on top about a 3 or 4 maybe  guessing this bit as he uses scissors for the top!Northern soul haircut is any f. in way you want your hair to be from ultra long to long gone!

I thought you had left those felt fuzzy pre shrunkers in my bag and I had left them at Les.s along with my shirt mate,have you perhaps got two pairs!Twisted squeals are showing up sold out in the Ann Summers naughty Northern section of their shop website.However I have heard that the "PRIVATE  sex shops Naughty stuff for Northern Soulers are giving one away one  free with every pair of Va Va very naughty knickers  for the lasses to wear with their circle skirts.

 

What is it all coming to?I hear the childrens radio program "Tales from the river bank", now tellss of Hammys boat being stolen by ratty who used it to set off up the river looking to get on to the canal system so he could go to Wigan.Adidas are now bringing out a trainer  that contains a mechanism for shooting out a small amount of talc from the toe by means of a remote control that the instructions say is best stored in a side patch pocket, preferably one that if you put your hands in it and its twin on the other side of the breeks(baggy as possible) rather than walk like an Egyptian if you set off at a stride your gait would more resemble that of a "Simian",Nike have countered with trainers that have leather soul and heels.The Nike trainer is called "The Northern Night Spinner".For all of us old,bald,granpaw simpsonish where have all the years gone enough to remember there used to be a football boot called "The Alan Ball",the heels of said boots were a sort of revolving stud mechanism,designed so it is said to enable a crap footballer to spin on the turn like Alan Ball, the Nike trainer claims to enable a novice or someone who has been trying for many years to spin like Danny Daniels,Booper,Irish or Billy Bingham ,the trainers heels are made to be able to revolve again by use of a remote control downloaded on to a mobile phone,the spinning heels will not stop until a signal again is sent via the mobile phone.The Nike spinner has been the subject of recent news articles as they are being sued by the makers of the Alan Ball boots.Will Nike bring back the art of spinning big time to the scene replacing apart from a few here and there what is now known as the," two footed run aroundonthespotabit", while looking at the floor move that punctuates a number of folks dancing!.Only time and the result of an ongoing dispute in the civil court will tell!All items mentioned may be purchased at Stoke,between the table selling," Big baggy  breeks for niter boys", and the stall selling ,"I went to Wigan ",mugs and car stickers, you have the chance to buy the whole range four  nights  a year  over the counter rather than via the various internet sites.If  you do decide to buy over the counter and  plan on taking any Weetabix the sensible thing is not to eat to many and to consume them before you get there,if they spill on the dancefloor they can make a nasty mess especially if the milk mixes with any talc .
