I saw SCHEME in 1983. walked a while with them on the peoples March for Jobs. I was living in Corby (wee scotland) at the tender age of 16 at the time, actually missed my O levels and ran away with the march lol. I joined the march in Wellingborough with my mate Mary.
That was the craziest summer ever
Good memories, loss of innocence, great music, guinness, tight Tory councils, blisters, those yellow rain jackets, snogging in Hyde park, damp floors in Hemel Hempstead, my first samosa in a mosque in Southall, Crystal Palace.....so cool, more blisters, that mercenary from Liverpool, my adolescent crush on SCHEME!
Telling Tebbit that if I had a job, I could by a bike!!!!! We're all in Maggies vicious circle! He was not amused and promptly ignored me lol.
Wow.....long time ago lol.
After the march, trips to see folk we'd met along the way, Barnsley and Sheffield, where my mate smeared lager all over her legs to get a quicker sun tan and ended up in the emergency room with 3rd degree burns doh!
And by the way, ive got Black & Whites album on my Listube App! Been looking off and on for years, finally got it!
