I just spotted this pic of mustang's. Isn't this where the Virgin record
shop used to be ?  Either at the Tote bookies, or the wee horrurs. It was totally black inside, with old aircraft seats and headphones on each one.
I remember going in there when I was about 15 and the guy behind the counter gave me this wierd looking album to listen to. It was "Tubular Bells".
I sat down and listened to it for about 15 minutes, and thought, this is the
biggest pile of sh!te I've ever heard. "Haven't you got any Zeppelin" ?

............can't be right all the time !

This old pic really got the old brain cells ticking over.
My mum used to drag me into Sellyn's whenever I needed a new rig-out. Not because it was local, (....we lived in Knightswood...),
but because it gave tick. She could kit me out and pay it back, half-a crown a week.
Just along the road (behind the tram) is Roberts Stores, a sports shop. Mum took me in there, when I was about 10
and got me my first Rangers strip.



....and if you don't believe me. Here's the proof.
P.S. don't stare at this pic too long, or the paedo polis wull be bangin' oan yer door.

Hi Demure, do you remember the words of the TV advert for Sellyns?
I remember some of it and want the rest
Sellyns is the shop for all the family, Sellyn's is where you really want to be, whats the rest?
