    Ha ha. I just checked and my cap is 7 1/8. No room for a wig (used to have long hair, but shaved about 10 years ago been same ever since), underneath, it’s pretty tight. I will see what they have anyway. Sometimes they have old unused stock lying about. My email is stevieratcliffe@hotmail.com
    I’m going into town this afternoon, I will have a look what sizes they have, and take a pic. Yeah I can even put it on ebay buy it now for ya for piece of mind.

    On a side note, we here in the UK failed in our attempt to get AC/DC’s Highway To Hell as Christmas No 1.
    But we did get to no 4 which gives them their 1st UK top 10 single.

        Are you in Northern Ireland Ant? I remember you mentioned you were in the UK before, I just assumed you were from England.

        I take it that’s not you Ant in your profile pic? I always assumed you looked a bit like Eric Cantona until I saw your recent vids.

          Well there is a bit of a story behind it ๐Ÿ™‚

          its actually Fil and Harrison ford, on one of the posts a few members said Fil looks like Harrison Ford and a member here did a Photoshop of his face and stuck it on Harry’s face from the film The Fugitive, i found it so funny i asked if it was ok to have it as my avatar so i can haunt Fil with it ๐Ÿ™‚ its been like this for almost 3 years now and still make me chuckle ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi angusrudd.

    I’m in UK, Northern Ireland to be specific, not far from Belfast. I got it in a schoolwear shop. It is part of the prep school department of the grammar school here in my home town. I think it only cost like ยฃ5 or something. Could pick one up for ya if ya want and post. I cut the horns of a halloween costume thing and sewed them on. The hat has the 2 yellow stripes already, like the sides of the ‘A’. I just glued on a strip of yellow fabric across to make the A. I’ll have a look in the shop 2mrw and see what they have. I think I got the biggest size it comes in. Wherabouts are you yourself?

      I would love one!!!

      The biggest size is probably what I need. My hat size is like 7 5/8 with all my hair and big brain haha. I live on the total other side of the world, in Florida. I can pay you back for it as well via Paypal.

    Where did you get that damn schoolboy cap!?!?! I’m having the hardest time finding the proper one, and one that fits my big head. There is a company out of the UK that makes them for adults but they want $80 for one….Also, where are you out of Stevier?

    These are unlisted links, and basically for the band to hear ourselves, we’re not ready to reveal to public, this was more of a taster, but I don’t mind sharing with the solodallas crew.

    So, I reckoned we weren’t quite ready, but a friend had a slot for us in a local. Wednesday night, torrential rain, 70mph winds, but had a reasonable turn out.
    To be fair lads this was my 1st gig, and I was really nervous, so not really moving about much as angus. I thought it better to try to play well 1st. There were definitely a few mistakes, and things to work on, but has the set progressed I got really into it. We finished with let there be rock, and then encored highway to hell. Got a good cheer after every song too! Bear in mind our singer only had 3 rehearsals with is too, so is still more to come from him. Roll in the next one!
