I just finished reading this. Itís a good insight into this legendary label. Thereís good stories from people involved with the label and is full of details about the era and how Trojan operates.
Well worth buying a copy.

Iím surprised itís not been mentioned that the John Simons film has been released.
Itís a brilliant look at the mans life and gives a great insight into his philosophy on clothes and his very long career.
Well worth a look.

Fashion for sale or wanted / Penfield Hoosac Parka For Sale Large Size
« on: December 09, 2017, 05:44:12 PM »
I have a Large Penfield Parka for sale, colour Lichen I.e. green.
I got it as a late Xmas present in January this year(2017) but I donít like the colour and I have honestly only worn it 3 times since getting it. Also it was a little too small for me.
Itís stil in the Penfield box it was delivered in.
Have a look at the Penfield site for sizing information but I have provided measurements below.
Pit to pit 23Ē.
Sleeve length 27Ē.
Total  length exculding hood 34Ē.
These are extremely good cold weather coats and last for years. The last one I had lasted 12 years.
I want £200 plus £15.00 postage. RRP is £395. The postage is an estimate off the Royal Mail site. If itís cheaper Iíll refund the difference. If more expensive Iíll swallow the extra cost.
As Iíve been mucked about selling on eBay Iím hoping to sell on here without the conning so &soís on eBay which are the bane of online selling. Iím not willing to play postal tennis with this item so no refund without  a great reason so check the sizing before buying.
Contact me for photos. If localiish to croydon I might consider delivering it.
Payment by paypal, cash or bank transfer.

After watching Ken Burns excellent documentary about the Vietnam War I stumbled across  series he made about the history of Jazz on PBS America channel. Itís running now and is being repeated most days.
Itís worth a watch.

Paolo Hewitt and John Hellier's book 'Can You Show Me A Dream? Arrived yesterday and it looks like a good read.
I can't remember when I ordered it. I assume it was through the pledge website or something.
Not on Amazon yet but should be available soon I would have thought.

Martin G. I was too young to get in as I was 14 but no one would have taken me.
I don't think I saw it until about 1981 in a cinema Up West.
Flowered Up were London's answer to the Happy Monday's but whereas the Mondays functioned reasonable well on drugs for a while, Flowered Up couldn't.
They fell apart quickly but left behind a legacy of stories.

The other aspect of this film is that it's become iconic and is now so heavily ingrained into popular culture I don't think any sequel, no matter how brilliant, would work.
Jimmy walked away and that's it.
I listened to Flowered Up's Weekender (one for the ex ravers amongst us) the other day  and that uses Quadrophenia dialogue from the film.
It's hard to think of any other British film dialogue that would be used in such a way.
I think it was at a Flowered Up gig when  the lead singer fell off the stage and busted his leg!
