i thought the work f k would have come out differently oops of course the seventies were a bit wild just before all the record labels became freer and anyone could start their own label. before that it was all the big ones had the music industry all tied up and the number 1984 still meant something where as now we living in it lmao maybe im tooooo old and toooo cynical

My bike of the 70's? The Chipper... a little version of the Chopper lol. What about The Tomorrow People, Mary Mungo and Midge, and The Flumps? The Six Million Dollar Man toys. We were poor and I never got them but I always hoped. I did get a second hand Evil Kneivel tho. Remember them? Wind em up and let em go. Never as good as the advert showed but what is?

What I remember most is: You wore long nylon dresses to parties. Tartan Bitter - my dad always drank that at Xmas 1974 - The first Mc Donalds opening up in Woowich, SE London (near where I live) The Silver Jubilee - Big reinactment we did at school... I know there's lots more if I think harder... Now I know I'm getting older when an original Chopper bicycle is worth a bit!
