Footwear's important but the right footwear's importanter, as Punks Not Dad well know.



Before my parents bought me a pair of eight-hole ox-blood DMs as a 10-year-old back in the early 80s, I had a pair of monkey boots, just like the ones Hugh Cornwell sports on the cover of Black and White by the Stranglers.

So, in honour of me good mate and regular Rake & Herald reader David McDonald, who got me thinking about all this in the first place, here's Punks Not Dad with a charming musical ode to these fantastic if slightly weird-looking items of functional foot concealment and protection.

And blimey!

Isn't that Peter Bowles in a shed, the bounder?

Have a watch and see.
