On a related note, since I went to the Rock 'n' Blues I've been
wondering how you go about becoming an Outlaw, an Angel or some-such.
Not that I'm thinking of doing it, any more than I'm thinking of
becoming Pope - it's just one of those things that has cpatured my
There were a number of probationary Outlaws wandering round the RnB, so
I know there is a certain amount of being shouted at and stuff to go
through, but I was more interested in the following;
1. How do you even get to the stage of being a probationary member? It
seems to me that wandering up to a gang of 1%ers and saying, "Please
mister, I want to be in your gang." would get you a sound kicking. I
also get the impression there's not much to do in the way of filling in
application forms and wearing your best suit for interviews.
2. All of the probationary Outlaws looked very similar to existing
memebers - do you have to have the right look before you start or do
they give you a little sheet full of grooming and styling tips to help
you achieve that look?
3. Is it actually possible to join if you are a sprots bike rider with
1 piece leathers, short hear and clean shaven visage?
4. Do the people who join actually have real jobs? None of them looked
like they might just stick their leathers and stained jeans in the
wardrobe on Sunday night and head into the office on Monday morning -
not even as tech support staff.
Amazingly the Outlaws web-site answers none of these questions, but I'm
sure that ukrm will know.
