Wasn't really a fan at the time, but can remember the show.

Good old Geordie Jeans. Everyone had at least one pair of those bad boys!

Yeah, I remember Geordie Jeans. Whatever happened to them? They had stores in prime locations, like where the FCUK shop at the monument is located now, and denim never really goes out of fashion. They should still be around today really!

One thing I distinctly remember about Geordie Jeans is that you get odd waist-sizes. It's most commonly done in even numbers (32, 34, 36 etc.) but at Geordie Jeans you buy a 33" waist, or a 37.
Some pure nostalgia here. Argos Catalogue from 1985.

I love the little briefcase for the ZX81. Quite stylish actually.
Who had one of these?
C'mon - hands up... Www.assetstorage.co.uk/AssetStorageService.svc/GetImageFriendly/721344080/410/300/0/0/1/80/ResizeBestFit/0/FRU/2E6755F83D5654A51CEC82C0310AC7FC/the-shell-suit-lovely-purple-number.jpg
The consoles back then were the best

I had a NES, A Game Boy, A Game Gear, A Sega Master System and a SNES...

Dont really play games now, apart from the odd bash on Railworks now again

Yeah I used to have a black and turquoise Puma shell suit back in 1990/91-ish. I think every kid/teenager just about had one at some point.

I nearly bought one again when I went to see Goldie Lookin' Chain at Newcastle Uni in 2004. They had them at the Merchandise table for £35 or something but, I think, the only size they had was small so I ended up buying a T-shirt instead.

Speaking of all shell-suits and 90's fashion. Does anyone remember these long-forgotten brands?

Personally, I never owned either. But they seemed to be all the rage in Winlaton.

I was always a Nintendo loyalist. I used to get into endless arguments over which was better: NES or Master System; SNES or Megadrive. I am still convinced that Nintendo was better, nothing will convince me otherwise.

The only console I have today is a Nintendo DS bought when they were first released in 2005. It's still running and I have a NES, SNES, Megadrive and ZX Spectrum Emulators running on it. Retro-gaming at my fingertips.
I bet your NES didn't have Alex Kidd built in though did it? Wink

The first Nintendo product I ever owned, was a Gamecube - £34 from Argos as the Wii was launched 9/10 years ago.
Sega all the way for me, even if on World Cup Italia 90, you could only score a goal from two positions on the pitch!

Never owned either of those brands, can remember Naff Naff, but not the other one.
All the lasses at school, would turn up at the youth club in their Joe Bloggs jeans, Sweatershop jumper, with a Naff Naff jacket over the top and their hair full of lumious scrunchies - lush!
Me, I was happy with my Joe Bloggs jeans and a Global Hypercolour T-Shirt, with a curtains and bowl hair cut - classy!

Speaking of haircuts, was it just me, or did those Chelsea skin heads that some lads have, look sackless?
Frindge/tuft of hair at the front and the rest shaved off...

Or that snail maze game accessible by pressing B and up on the D-pad. Alex Kidd was SMS2; SMS1 was Super Hang On (I think). Out of the three, the snail maze game was easily the best; the accompanying music was quite catchy too.

I bet your Sega didn't have Super Mario Bros.3; the Legend of Zelda or the Adventure of Link. Tongue

I seem to remember that perms were en-vogue too. But, yeah, that's a pretty accurate description of how lasses were dressed at my local youth club too.
The new Jaffa Cakes advert has reminded me of this blast from the past.

Passed the NEC today on the train and it brought back memories of Gladiators.
The crowds that turned up for what must have been hours of filming...

Dad is guessing that it is the Apollo cinema.
Aye, its what was the cinema and was turned into a car garage.

As a kid, I convinced that Superman had some role in the mini being smashed through the wall.

Top marks to Simmys dad!
