Demob, I think the shop was on Beak Street just up the road from the Lonsdale shop.

The average pair of trews from Demob would have made Simon Cowell's look like hipsters.

If I remember rightly the Demob lot were well into Northern Soul. They were involved in a band from Scarborough called The Friday Club in the early 80's who had a Northerny vibe about 'em.

Brogues had to be by Frank Wright, real top quality.

gary

I remember spending nearly a weeks money on me tassled FW slip ons - and losing one of 'em in the crush on the non membership door at Wigan - then having to get back out of the door (try that :huh: ) to rescue it.

BUBBLE JUMPERS

PLASTIC SANDALS

:huh:

I posted on here before about plastic sandals.

I once wore a new pair to Stafford, when the obligatory 'No Socks' rule was still in place.

My feet got really hot and swelled up. I had to take the shoes off cos I was in agony. I tried to dance barefoot but it was just asking for trouble, so ended up sulking all night as my mates took the pish.

Friday Club featured two girls, Adel and Terry, who both moved to London in the 80's.

They were regulars at the York do's and Wigan. Good chums too. :thumbsup:  The record, window shopping, was the last but one release on two-tone.

Adel used to turn up at the 100 Club every now and again. Do you remember her Ken? Lovely girl, I used to see her quite a bit when I lived in London, as we knew each other from the old York days. 

Terry was lovely too, got some nice pics somewhere of us having a picnic in

Kew Gardens.

Too slow on the edit there :thumbsup: Sorry Craig :lol:

OOPS! Me slow on the edit too!  Got the names wrong, put Leslie, when it should have been Adel. Leslie was a mate of Adel's, also from York. Was into the scene, but not in the band! Have seen Leslie a while ago, not seen Adel or Terry for years.
