eyup, used to breakdane in 80's, in 42nd street crew from Barnsley, sharif and asif, slacky, me, couple of others did a thing wiv smac19, we came to sheffield few times, they came to a school near us in Barnsley, made maes with junior and a guy i think they called budgie or parrot, can't remember his name now.

there was another crew rom Barnsley who were good, can't remember names but they used to wear blue/grey nike windjammers.....ahhh no matter.

Years later ended up workin with juniors sister in theatre andwe met up again at after show party.

we used to have black track bottoms and red/black adidas windjammers, total cool, lol, plus compulsory lino and ghetto.

we used to do our thing at Rebeccas club in Barnsley and couple times at Rooftop gardens in wakefield.

we used to cruise wiv a guy called johnny playing electro full blast. Newcleus was one of our favs.Beatstreet was great film, rock steadys were gods, lol

still got the original vinyl of newcleus somewhere.

all you old breakers, watch "stomp the yard" made me think back to my breaking days.

Yeah Smac 19 were the best if I'm honest, but seen as I went out with a member of 'Street Crew' for a while, I'm a bit bias to them! I have a video of them all (that I recorded off the telly in '85! LOL) when they held the Calendar break dancing comp at Nelson Mandela building in Pond Street. There's just about every Sheff breakdancer on there either in a crew competing or in the crowd! I went through a phase a few months ago, playing it to see who I could spot from back then! My lad is into street dancing and I got the video out to show him that us 'oldies' have been there and done that one! And he was well impressed LOL! Those were the days! Still see quite a few of the lads from back then and they haven't changed that much (well some of em!)

 

Hi footiefreak,

any chance of uploading that video please?

I could probably point a few out to you as i used to live nextdoor to Carlos and Andre from Smak19, i used to watch them practising on their back garden with the rest of them.

Their older brother Denton was a podium dancer on Top of the pops aswell.

hi all! has anyone ever heard of a crew called scratch mix?? :confused:

my boyfriend claims to have been an 'amazing' breakdancer in sheffield back in the day, and I am dying to find some footage!

would have been mid 80's as well. haven't seen the crew mentioned above though, he says their name changed a lot...sounds a bit like an imaginative crew to me, which would explain his dodgy breakdancing skills :hihi:

please let me know if you know anything!

 

btw, what's this about tv footage??? anyway to upload that on here? :partyhat:

Yes I remember Scratch Mix! They did exsist! Greg Edwards was in this crew if I remember correctly! Think they night have been on the 'Calendar' t.v.footage? :-) think they were one of the younger crews around at this time.
