    Double X jeans..can't find a photo of them but they were crap:( big X on the back pockets, they had big turn ups not because they looked cool, but just incase you were a giant you could turn them down..paper thin and i remember they cost 7/6 (37.5p for our younger members)

    From time to time when I was a little kid my mum used to approach me with a fizzing glass of this stuff in her hand :-
    AndrewsLiverSalts.jpg
    uttering the words "right lad, I thing you're ready for a dose of Andrew's Liver Salts". She never said why. I used to pretend to hate it but really I liked it because it was very fizzy. Sadly she's not around to ask but I reckon I was probably given a dose after issuing a series of putrid farts.
