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.
