Any Goths, Metal heads, or Bikers in Shetland????


Recommended Posts

back on topic...

 

there used to be a thriving metal / biker community when i were a lass, but don't know if it still exists now.

 

I still listen to loud noxious music as much as i can. NIN, Rammstein, Green Day and, oddly enough, Iron Maiden have been kicking about the stereo of late.

 

Amusing musical conversation of the week was with other half's youngest (She has extremely good musical taste, and isn't adverse to corruption either. We just hope she never studies German, as we've given her som Rammstein to take home...) She was up for the weekend and was reviewing our music collection, and started to tell us about a particularly crap CD her mum had in the car which was really embarrassing to be dropped off to (she's 11). She thought the name had an R in it, and after much digging, she said we didn't have it. Cue other half and I pretty much in unison 'Bay City Rollers'...

 

We were right, that was the disturbing thing.

I used my 1st grant cheque to buy a proper bikers jacket, it still has pride of place in my wardrobe. (it stays in my wardrobe, as I can no longer fit into it!) I have fond memories of falling asleep p*ssed after nights out at Rock night in Ritzy''s in Aberdeen with jacket and docs still on, pretty uncomfortable the next morming!

I have great nights listening to all my metal records, thin lizzy, iron maiden, NIN. Heavy metal just sounds better on vinyl than CD (I must be getting old!)

I think there is a fairly healthy metal scene in shetland, we just don't dress as bad as we did when we were 16 and wearing Suicidal Tendancies T-shirts (that used to freak my folks out, I never understood why!).

I used to ride a Pan-Euro, hardly a thugs bike, outside the pub that said No Dogs or Bikers. I used to defuse it by talking in a posh voice, asking after their health or asking for a Snowball.

 

I decided that it was about time that I bought a Goldwing, got a proper haircut and stopped wearing urbans :oops:

Sorry to hear you felt the need to get rid oh the Pan n get a Wing!!!!

I was in the Italian Alps a couple oh months ago wee a guy dat had got rid oh his Wing and bought a Pan. Was a brah bike, well it was... on the wey up the pass... No much fun coming round the bend to find one on its side!!! At least he took oot the VFR a4 him as well!!!

corruption of the 11 yo isn't necessary. generally whatever we're listening to is deemed 'cool', and she is well aware her mother's taste is dubious - she took them to see justin timberlake when youngest was about 6. She is still very bitter about the whole experience now.

 

had an untimely piece of luck in the summer visit too, when her older sister managed to wipe her mp3 player, making it necessary for her to borrow my ipod for the duration. oops.

 

gave her some radiohead to prepare for the depressing teenage years too...
