Once, the punkest hairstyle on the planet, adapted and adopted from various native North Americans, including the Huron and Blood tribes. The originators of the mohawk style in punk circles were Wes Beech (of US band Plasmatics) and Rainy (of UK band Discharge). The punks went on to spike their mohawks with soap, eggwhite, glue and hairspray, as the Native Americans had with buffalo grease, before going into battle. A hairstyle which used to guarantee ridicule and abuse from braindead trendies. Since David Beckham's half-arsed style around 2000, the mohawk has become trendy and acceptable, so what's the point?
Now these trendy sheep think a mohawk's cool, I think I'll grow a comb-over instead.
Evolving from the term of abuse bugger, meaning a sodomite or irritating person. To play 'silly buggers' is to generally act the fool, lark about, waste time or generally mess things up. As illustrated by English band The Bus Station Loonies song "Playing Silly Buggers" (1995).
"They were too busy playing silly buggers to get the job completed in time".
The ultimate degree to which an individual is pummelled/ kicked-in/ beaten-up... The last word in a complete and utter kicking... Of UK origin but, believe me, there is no escape...
Goodness! You should've seen those old/bald geezers going mental... After reading that embarrassing and patronizing claptrap penned by Ethan P., the creaky fellas went apeshit and kicked seven shades of shit out of him. Everyone applauded, including the pacifists. That'll make the ageist cunt think twice before spouting such drivel again.
From the film "Taxi Driver" (1976). The central character (played by Robert De Niro) goes doolally and society is to blame. During his journey into madness and mayhem, he decides to shave his hair into a mohican style or mohawk. This hairstyle has since been particularly embraced by punk rockers thanks mainly to this movie and the bands Plasmatics and Discharge. The De Niro character is called Travis Bickle... therefore a "Travis Cut" ("Bickle Cut" sounds too much like a chunky sandwich spread).
Travis Cut were also the name of a UK punk band from the mid 1990's.
