It's the 1970s. The hair is shaved, the music is funky and the football is violent - very, very violent. Every Saturday, legions of football fans take to the terraces to do battle with each other. Chris Brown was in the thick of it. The regulation haircut, clip-on braces, shrunk Levis and bovver boots - he had the look that every self-respecting bovver boy tried for, and he launched himself into the culture of the decade with a passion. This is a story of those times. It is a story of the adrenaline-packed Saturday outings, a story of Tonik suits, terraces and The Maytals, of race riots, safety pins and The Clash by way of P.Funk, platform shoes and discos. A true story of the most maligned decade in British history - the music, the fashion, the violence. Welcome to the real 1970s - it ain't no boogie wonderland.
