    I didn't say I liked it, but at least women then looked like women.

    I never said all women dressed like men in the 20s! Some did. It was about feminism and equality and breaking social taboos.

    +1 Let's reference females properly. Also, some women of the 20's were strong in society and wanted to dress in a male orientated way to rebel against masculine rule to which I fully support. Women wanted to be seen on a level ground with men both in standing and strength and in showing their sexuality, opposing and rebelling against Victorian values.

    It was power dressing. The same has happened in every decade since especially the 80s. To look more masculine is to show strength, to show a failing equality in a male orientated society that women can do just as well as men in every way.

    Hint: this is one of those occasions, just like we had before with graphic equalisers, to hold your hands up and admit you're wrong (or at the very least, didn't explain yourself properly)

    I fully support the sentiments behind that, Jo, and would've wished them the best of luck, had I been there, but I still like women to look (and more importantly BEHAVE) like women, sorry. And by that I mean ladylike, well-spoken and with good manners. That's just how I am

    You can still be a strong, confident, rebellious and successful woman, whilst being well-mannered and ladylike!

    Red Leb was pretty good, but my favourite was what we called 'Pakkie Black'. For real headbanger, hippy-trippy stuff there was always Nepalese Blue.

    Actually, my all time favourite was good old-fashioned "grass". Stank the place out, but was the nicest of highs.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
