Photos Leeds Alternative scene 80's & 90's.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

For those with memories of 80's Leeds before the city centre became a shoppers paradise and commercial magnet. This is doing the rounds on the tw@tter and reminds us all of one of Leeds' commercial pulls of the 80's. Allegedly LUFC's new third shirt....

The coke-addled premium-rate-phone-line bastard that I used to work for would occasionally entertain business associates by taking them to Winstons.

What the fcuk was I thinking, working for him? :lol:

Really cool pictures, thanks for sharing, so different from the ‘80s I experienced. I don’t remember any punks or goths in my area, I think I was one of the few that wore black a lot and everyone else wore a lot of pastels, like a bunch of Easter eggs. And all we were doing was watching Mtv, hanging out at the mall, playing Ms. Pac-Man and deciding which frozen yogurt flavor to try next, real important stuff
