Here or Biking ?

Come on ,ye ancient SS folks. Way back in the 60's there was a HIT record( 45,I think, 6" Vynll /plastic disc ,that was played on a "Record Player") ,that would be a thump to the idiots on bikes( or perhaps to those eging them on). "Leader of the Pack".


Can imagine that Oscar ( if he's still weolding the bus pass)/ Tone or DCB might remember it.

I remember it, but not from the original release date as I was only in single digits then - months that is.

Just checked the release date. 1964 .Didn't realise it was that old .( Makes me wonder if not realising that is a good thing )
