  1. One of the best books i have read,absolutley fascinating.These teenagers made the hoodies look like little girls.They were worse than the teddy boys and skinheads and hells angels put together,fighting in gangs of 200 or more in the streets of manchester and salford armed with heavy buckled belts,knives,guns and swords.These teenage boys and girls terrified manchester for over 30 years.The scuttlers also invented teenage fashion with tribal uniforms of bell bottom trousers and the scuttlers hair cut.like i said they were the true originators of street cred mods skinheads and teddy boys.buy the book .
