Example text

The skinhead thing at the time was to share a squat, and I would have loved to do that. Skelly and I even got to meet the lead singer of Skrewdriver, Ian Stuart. I was infatuated with the whole movement, and here I was sitting in a cafe with the singer of the band I loved and he was buying us toast and tea. I couldn’t believe it was happening. But the problem was that I had a job and I couldn’t just jack it in and disappear to London. My parents weren’t happy that I was involved with the skinheads.

Gina and I stood at the back of the venue, ready to enjoy the gig. When the first band came on, a couple in the crowd started to look out of place. A tall guy and a woman had walked past us a couple of times, clearly checking me out. At first I hadn’t noticed them, but Gina was suspicious. Then they made their move. They strode towards me, the guy in front and the woman right behind him. I took a couple of steps forward to take any fight away from Gina. As I got closer to the man, he shouted out my name and nodded.

Instead of going to the youth club and playing snooker, we preferred to get some cider and head for the city centre, on the lookout for a fight. By the time I’d reached the top of the UDA and was serving time for my involvement, I tried to keep my parents from knowing more than they needed to. The fact that I’d ended up in prison was nothing to do with them at all. During all the time I was locked up, I think I sent them only one access pass to visit me. As far as I was concerned, the Maze wasn’t the sort of place that my dad would want to be seen.
