The Skinhead thing was so lame.............skinheads in Singapore are SO clueless about the whole movement.......like those young kids at the beginning, they were saying like - oh, it's a culture....then when asked WHAT exactly the "skinhead" culture is, they replied something like: to hang out with friends and get drunk or whatever...............umm..............sure...........so the mama at the coffee shop near my house is also a skinhead? The mat passed out at the void deck is also a skinhead? Geez...................wait til they meet the real skinheads from UK or whatever.....they'll pee in their (tapered) pants.....
Do they even know WHY skinheads shave their heads? Or wear boots? or suspenders? Or do the things that they do?Huh? At least the "older" ones were a little more "learned" than the greenhorns......but still, what's the point of being a skinhead without the "cause"? It's not a culture or a fashion u adopt cos it seems cool. Yes, it's a way of life - but the ones here in Singapore don't even adopt that "way of life" - meaning they're all fake...u heard me... F-A-K-E (yay, I can spell...).

Ok off-topic....my bad..... Tongue

yup and we can also enjoy music and have fun without being metalheads/rockheads/punkheads/popheads...
there'll be no diversity, no differences and no colours. everybody will be the same grey shade...
whether the skins here are really living it or not we can never be sure unless we know every single one of them... because in every majority there is always the minority.

It's a real big pity, all that misguided passion. It doesnt make any sense at all, beause even though they know any of the idealogies behind the "tradition" and what not it is in no way relevant to the Singaporean society.

Whats worse is that they so loosely use the term "tradition" when they themselves "hilang adat" as we malays put it. Why chase foreign culture when ur forgetting the ways of ur own flesh and blood.

Kedoingdoings!

Ok....I started this whole off-topic thing.....but nvm...shall continue it anyways... kekeke Tongue

Alright - the so-called "skinheads" (majority of them) in Singapore think it's all abt the fashion (what u wear, how many pair of boots u own, how many times u nicked ur head and nearly bled to death while shaving) and the "violent" lifestyle. But it's not JUST abt that!!!!!!!!!!!!! I may not BE a skinhead myself or have a Degree in the skinhead culture etc etc, but at least I know well enough that skinheads are sort of vigilantes or anarchists who wanna take the law into their own hands cos they're unhappy/ unsatisfied with what their government is doing (or NOT for that matter).
They don't meet up and exchange girls' phone numbers or share one bottle of Hooch among 42 ppl or show off their new threads.

Of course there's racism involved - that's how it was originally (I'm not promoting racism here alright?? But I'm trying to make a point.....).
They wear what they wear cos it's just their WORK CLOTHES. I don't think Singapore boys have to wear jeans and boots to work at Pizza Hut right?? What's gonna happen there?? Extra hot cheese lands on your feet??
Skinheads are your average working people who believe in the bare neccessities and nothing fancy-schmancy or ladida.

They drink diesal cos they don't have enough cash to blow it all on booze - and besides, drinking is mainly to keep warm - cos remember ppl, where they come from, it's COLD.......... but in Singapore?? They drink juz to get drunk? They wear puffy thick jackets to warm themselves frm the occasional breeze?Huh??

Alright....before I kena slammed by any Skinheads (not dat I give a toss tho), I'm gonna sit back and listen to what y'all have to say............. Cool

So whats the overall point?

They dont only share a bottle of Hooch among 42 people, yet they are vigilantes and anarchists who want to take the law into their own hands... but its all just a load of illogics and contradictions to me. Which was what youve emphasized on..erkk so was that sarcasm?

Oh have i ever mentioned? Khai Hearts Pussycat's articles Smiley

Hmm...yes...my point was a bit fuzzy wuzzy...hehe....

Ok, the Skinheads in the UK or whatever (the original ones) are vigilantes and anarchists who take the law into their own hands.

The *ahem* "Skinheads" in Singapore (MAJORITY OF THEM) just share one bottle of Hooch with 42 friends and kick down dustbins and THINK they're garang.

Get what I mean? Wink

Oh yes, thank you for supporting my articles!! I'm glad u like them!! Grin

I saw a skinhead at the Career 2004 Exhibition thingy. Jacket and all.

"What the hell? a Skinhead?!" - an immediate reaction.

hey guys..give them some slack la Smiley perhaps cos this is fundamentally a metal and not a hc/punk forum..there're some points being missed out on..

from the sociological aspect, being in a particular group basically gives people a sense of security and belonging. I believe in the freedom of choice to association..if they feel that being skinhead is right for them then i guess let them be.

fyi, skinheads are not supposed to be racist. that is a gross generalization. skinhead culture was started in britain when many of these skinheads were members of the socialist workers party (SWP), a left-wing party. Racist skinheads came later, when British National Party (BNP). a far-right nationalist party, recruited them in street fights against the socialist 'red' skins. Hence it is unfair to term all skins as racist i guess..

in my honest opinion, being racist is more of a personal choice thing so i wouldnt attribute racism to a certain group unless it is really overtly racist (some far-right political parties of the extremist sort).
