Pete 'Spins' A Yarn

Pete regaled his peers with an interesting story about how he first got into the music business tonight.

Chatting in the lounge at around midnight, the odd-looking singer said that he'd been inspired by Vivienne Westwood's clothes in the mid-70's and used to visit her shop 'Sex' in Kings Road, London.

At the time, he sported a 50's-style black quiff and wore pink rubber stockings on his daily commute to work, bought from the famous designer's shop.

This proved so controversial in the area of Liverpool that the railway company eventually gave him his own compartment to travel in!

Indeed, hate mobs would regularly chase the bus that he was on, just because his dress sense was so way out.

Pete then detailed how he got the sack from his job and so opened-up his own clothes shop. He also frequented a club called Erics, which was the only place sympathetic to the wild fashions that he and others like him indulged in.

There, he got to meet many famous punk bands and the club's owner insisted on putting a band together for Pete, thus starting his musical career.

Nevertheless, Pete cited Vivienne Westwood as being responsible for starting it all off.

Michael and Maggot were fascinated by the tale and sympathised with how difficult it must have been to stand-out from the crowd so much at that time.
