aah youth. They think they know everything but don't have the sense to realise that by being young they automatically know very little. Not because they're stupid (far from it) but because they're young.
All the researching and discussing and theorising in the world will never take them back to the grim UK inner cities of the early 80's, when Asian youths tottered around on Spice Girl-style platforms and their wide-bottomed trousers flapped around in the wind.
By then everyone , whether they were punk, post-punk shoe-gazers, mod, two-tone, new romantic, or heavy metal, had binned the wide-bottomed trouser and high shoes.
But the youth of today don't believe me and they don't believe Morrissey, who was commenting on what was always a highly-amusing spectacle.
The Asian youth of today in the UK are as cool and hip and trendy as their skinny white indie kid peers.
Twenty-odd years ago it was a completely different story.
But you had to be there.
