    Accessing your money from the bank was nearly as difficult as earning it. They closed by 3.30pm and 'hole in the walls' were rare.

    Queen Victoria Square statue was extremely busy. There was no Mytongate or Freetown Way north, so traffic went through the city centre.

    Iggy Pop reckons the '70's was 'the' decade although he can't remember a lot about it. I'm with Iggy.

    You missed something off your list that a lot (some?) on here will recall. The 'edge' associated with watching just about every football match. You never knew what you might get embroiled in.

    Where have all the bootboys gone? Slaughter and the Dogs. Here's an interesting 70's one, New York Dolls first tour of England in 1972, incredibly they played Hull Malcolm's! (LA's) 4 days later their original drummer Billy Murcia died from a drugs od.

    Can't believe that the apostrophe mods haven't been kicking off big style on this thread.

    I know, 1972, the summer Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars came out, Hull must have been the centre of rock & roll.

    I hate ELO.

    I find Jeff Lynne's head disconcerting.

    Not anymore, I believe that type of thing usually takes place in secluded country lay-bys nowadays.

    I think the bootboy heyday was 1974/75 season. Bear in mind that they often rolled with kids in platform shoes also. The early 70s was skinheads, suedeheads, bovver boys, bootboys, soulboys, punks, casuals all in rapid fire succession. The normals outlasted all of them though.
    Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds and their seminal recording 'Kinell Tommy' on Tosh Ryan's Rabid Records was the first punk/football crossover record. I think 'One of the lads' by 4Be2s was the second one.
    It cannot be emphasized enough how loathed football was by the trendy Clash loving turds back then. Virtually no punkers would admit to liking football, as it was deemed deeply deeply uncool.
    Ditto Christmas: what was the official punk position on Xmas? Crass commercialisation and capitalist maudlin weep fest, totally unhip and conventional?
    Me? I got Never Mind the Bollox on Virgin limited edition with single that year (£2.99?) and the much sough-after 'Spunk' bootleg a few months later. Still got em both now. May well have got some new slippers too.
