Put a Face to your Name Mk.II


Recommended Posts

As promised, I'm not posting a pic of me with my Covid-beard.  But here's one of me taken about 10yrs ago, when I'd lost weight and didn't realise I was type-1

diabetic. I'm about a 10kgs heavier now.   I think we were playing 'Sweet leaf' by Black Sabbath here. Beer clouded my memory of when the photos were taken.

Anyway, what we all ended up using to style our hair was good old 'sugar water', that our fathers used to style their quiffs in THEIR youth. Youngsters today have probably never heard of it, but it was as good as free, and worked extremely well, creating very stiff spikes and hair that would stay precisely where it was 'placed'.

The only downside to using sugar-water was if you got caught in a summer shower, the re-wetted sugar would attract wasps which would chase you around. The re-wetted sugar could also get into your mouth and tasted quite nice, but not good if you're diabetic.

Hmm, the two method I used  for spiky hair, a long time ago I should add..

Soap, get bar, slightly wet,  so you get a soap paste, works well for spikes.  cheap and easy.  disadvantage, can make your eyes sting in the rain...

Egg White, dry with a hairdryer.  More bother than soap. Used for the brief time I had a mohawk (late 83)

 

Longer hair could get softer spike bay back combing, think Siouxsie and Robert Smith in the early 80's.

I just had a thought, that one might be able to use thin CA for the same effect.  Give both a go Dennis and let us know how you get on?

there was an story, possibly apocryphal,  in the early 80's about a employee/trainee at Rolls Royce who spiked his hair with superglue, as was told it was a health hazard...

I was a bit too old for punk, I was more a prog rock era - looong hair and flares!

 

I'll play with the "Here's me in a cockpit" shot thing, here's me in the FO's seat of Lockheed Electra G-LOFD, April 2006 on my last flight with Atlantic to Sweden delivering car components.

I'm a lot greyer these days!

Gidday All, you punks and goths make me seem very conservative by comparison. But then I think those fashions came about just a few years too late for me. Besides, I think my parents would have drawn the line there.

     But I liked heavy metal music, including Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Status Quo, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper etc. I still like a lot of it. Regards, Jeff.

My favorite song by Sabbath, good to have a face to go with the name.

Either their title song or Hand of Doom for me, with Mr Ward smashing the hell out of the kit.

Alright I am joining this thread with a picture of me that fits to my nickname. I guess I don´t need to explain where it was taken but I have to thank that unknown visitor of the Hendon museum back in July 2018 for taking it.

Well this is me at Newark Air Museum a few months ago, somewhere in the general vicinity of a Vulcan (or other Cold War aircraft) is a very likely place to find me.
