Where were you in 1975?



I am sitting here watching a program on what was hot in 1975 - Remember Sherbet?
Didn't they turn evil when they started wearning make up! My best friend ran their Newcastle based fan club and that is all I heard about. Boy, the stories she made up about what when on between the boys and her on a weekend at a gig! I knew it was all lies, but I let her go anyway cause she used to give me free Sherbert albums.Apparently the guys were'nt keen on the make up either, but that was the craze - especially with the likes of Kiss and the american bands with so much long permed hair and tight, tight pants...and the glossy silver eye shadow.
You could still get a decent cream bun and cream horn at the shop. (Yum)
What about flaired pants.....I remember having a pink pair - oh so stylish!
1975 was over 30 years ago - oh my God!!!!I was in high school and hated it. I would go to my friend's place before school every day and we would walk to school together and always be late.
That seems such a long time ago - yes...I AM old.

Oh I used to love Sherbet.... Garth really did it for my pubescent self. Yummo.
I had red satin hotpants, flared. With a little white cheesecloth top to go with them, and a red brooch!!! I LOVED the 70's. I still love the 70's although it was probably only the good bits i remember!!!
I remember the Salvo's playing tamborines on the street corner and getting more lollies then could fit into a brown paper bag for 20c. Crackers for cracker night, all in the display case at the corner store.
Ahhh the good old days.....

What about the Bay City Rollers? They were the cool thing at my school then!

I wore Skye-blue ones with a pink knitted top that had some ribbon roses on the front to my yr 7 end-of-year dance. My the end of yr 10, I had graduated to apple green flares with a matching triangle hankerchief top. And the platform shoes....a godsend top a girl of 5 feet 2 inches!
I have a friend who is a die-hard Sherbet fan. She buys memorabilia off e-bay, and the highlight of her year was meeting Garth at his studios as he wanted to purchase some of her collection. Did you know that Sherbet have recorded a new album? Gaynor was there when some songs were recorded! And a special guest when they performed live recently.
The 70's were a unique time..everything was so simple, and cheap. The decor was a bit ugly, though...

I was 7 and sitting up my favourite tree. My dad was a DJ and would play Sherbet songs for me because they were my favourite band besides Queen.

I was but a far away concept..... born 7 years later. So there.
Wish I hadn't missed it, sounds like fun! And 'flares' are kind of back in fashion - we just call them 'bootlegs' now. :)

Me and my friend did a dance at our year 6 'farewell' to Dancing Queen wearing black leotars and streamers around our wrist and knees. Shame.....
