Re: Roger Sutcliffe

It was 1983/4, our first year in Mid B after leaving Barnes B. Don't even rememebr the name Steve Eason so don't think he was there. The tutor was (I think) Mr Boyle though he may have joined a year later.

I seem to rememebr the leak be attributed to Mid A or Thorn A...

Re: Housey 'Peaceful Revolution'

Ah, peaceful revolution. I remember the hunger strike we went on in about 1988 to complain about the quality of the food. When I sa hunger strike, we just didn't eat any of the food in the dining hall. It lasted a good while as I remember and they bought in a load of much better food but they spent ...

Re: Music from Christ's Hospital 1985

I remember a record coming out around that time. My parents bought a copy so I think it was probably just sold to parents and at concerts to raise money, fairly sure I remember it being sold to Verrio visitors and on parents days, old blues days etc.

Re: Duncan Noel-Paton [FOUND]

I remember sitting in the lighting both with DNP sat next to me programming the preset lighting sequences, and DNP pulled off an oscar winning role of "Emotional Director". Whilst waiting for the next set of lights to come up he would very dramatically put his arm on the desk and bury his head in h...

Re: weekends

Someone on another thread mentioned "leave weekends" -- a non-concept in my day. So here in concise chronological sequence is a winter weekend c. 1957. Most of the below will be non-concepts nowadays, I imagine. Sat: breakfast - chapel practice* - 4 lessons - ldinner - compulsorily spectating 1st X...

Re: Sex 'n' Drugs 'n' Rock'n'Roll Part 1: Substance Abuse

Big drugs bust in 1987 or 1988 with a load of people expelled. It was followed by the whole senior school having to sit through David Kossoffs anti drugs one man show about how his son became a smack addict when he was in Free and then dying of an overdose. All it seemed to do was sell a lot of Paul...

Re: CH uniform worn by non members of school?

There was an urban myth in my time that Housey coats were on sale in various emporia on the Kings Road during the late 70's and early 80's. I'm guessing that the XTC photo might explain where the myth came from.

Re: Fashions in Music at CH

Been away from here for a bit. Re-forming and touring is definitely the new black. Seen the Bunnymen a few times over the years, last time at T in the Park in 2003. I can't get to the Mary Chain which is annoying the hell out me. I just bought The first chapter by The Mission which finally replaces ...

Re: Which scarf do you like best?

Wool, every time. I seem to remember we tied knots in the end of wool scarves in order to weigh them down a bit so they wouldn't blow off you in the wind.
