Thee Headcoats Quotes

“It’s the fact that there’s very little cultural life around here, I suppose. If you want something, you’ve gotta do it yourself really. In the punk days, I used to go up to London and I used to ask these punk rock people like, I’d go up to Paul Weller and say ‘When’re you gonna come and play in Chatham?’ and he’d say ‘Where’s Chatham?’ I thought ‘These groups are great, they can come down and play where we live and that’, but you know, I think Chatham got off the circuit a long time before then. One time of course it would have been a very vibrant centre, with all the big theatres and everything, but they’d all closed by the late 50's. Everything was on the way out and the Pentagon shopping centre finished it off, and the dockyard closing.”

“We had the same kind of unemployment here as they had in the worst hit places in the North and you’re meant to be on a cushy wicket in the South. If you go up to Newcastle, you can tell that the town’s really had money, or Liverpool, you know, the northern towns have got grandeur, whereas Medway, being just a sort of garrison town and dockyard town, you don’t have anything like Earl Grey Square or anything like that.”
