United States Gangs and Greaser Clubs

HONORING ALL GREASERS FROM USA TO RUSSIA!

Moscow Sharks Jacket Club

Russian Moscow Sharks Rockabilly Gang

Rockabilly Sharks: Moscow Russia's Stone Greaser gang, was founded in 1993 and is still going strong today. The gang's leader is also in a rockabilly band called the "Great Pretenders", and recently has written a song called "Greasers bop.

The Sharks all share their passion for Rockabilly music, and cover each other's backs when they attend Rockabilly Concerts.

With a lot of emigrants from Arabean and Asian countries entering Russia and causing problems, it looks like the formation of "Jacket Clubs" is becoming a reality like it was in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s.

Rockabilly Ravens: Surprised I'm still alive myself. Here is a picture of the boys. We don't gang bang any longer, but are now back to what we set out to be, A social club. We now solve issues a smarter way. Anyway, we are located in Glen Avon, California about 50 miles outside Los Angeles. A small white lower class town that is slowly being over run with illegals. We started up in 1984. We follow a strict code and style of the 1950's. The greaser population in California is beyond your comprehention.

Houston Gangs

Houston was by no means like Chicago, New York or LA. But it did have its share of gangs. Most of the turf or altercations were settled by fist fights with the occasional knife or chain being pulled. Guns really didn't come into play on a major scale until the late 80's. The inner city was where most of these gangs were based; they were blue collar areas with the factories and neighborhood bars to go with it. These gangs were home grown and created their own style of dress. There was gangs like First Ward Cobras, 6th Ward Red Devils who were army jackets and red bandannas. In the Heights area was the Woidland Boys with Blue Dickie jackets and White Letters. The Heights Knights we're also from this area but controlled tan other section. There was the Gonzos from Montie Beach, The West End had Bad CO and in Cottage Grove the skull and bones adorned by the crown meant danger to outsiders, Black pocket T shirts and jeans signified The Kungsmen controlled this area. These areas were mostly barrio gangs on the West Side. On the East side there was Magnolias' Black Dragons and Second Ward, also BDH gang which stood for Barrio Denver Harbor. The near Northside had gangs like the courts, Playboys, Pipers, Thieves, street Fighters and El Ryon. Most of these gangs fought with each other but for example was facing a larger gang would Band together to fight the opposing side. Neighborhood football games were common and usually cases of beer and pride were on the line. Every gang had their own style of dress and colors back then. This was from around 77" to the early 90's. Times were a little simpler then and the inner city had not be gentrified yet. Now we got yuppies and dogs everywhere. The mom and pop stores are disappearing, along with everything else.

TOWAR GARDENS:

Flint, Michigan 1940s

SPARKS: 40's
LOUIES: 40's
3-Ds (Davison [St.] Dirty Dozen)
Irish, Polish, Hillbillies, and Hungarians - Our bible was Irving Shulman's The Amboy Dukes. Clubhouse was a 3-car garage with chairs, sofa, mattresses, beer, sweet wine, cigarettes, Benzedrine; no other drugs. Old cars, gambling, big band dances, drag racing, pre-Little League pick-up baseball games, nearby lakes/reservoir swimming (one drowning each summer), pairing off with bobby sox girls, "rumbles" with Lewis St. Louies or The Sparks (no guns or knives); all waiting, waiting to be old enough for the invasion of Japan...

The Sparks and the Louies were more nicknames than actual gangs. They were neighborhood kids on Flint's east side who worked on cars and ran around together. The bunch I hung with called themselves the ''Dirty Dozen,'' decades before the ridiculous movie of the same name. We were not collectively criminal or of much concern to the police. We drank a little beer and wine, of course, when we could get it; but the only other common drug was benzedrine, or ''bennies.'' Of course we all smoked cigarettes, which were technically illegal for minors, and had to be purchased by adults.

There were no organized turf wars or ''rumbles,'' just an occasional 'clean'' grudge fight. We were just kids during WWII, wearing pieces of military uniforms our older brothers or uncles gave us when they were home on furlough. I think of us as transitional kid gangs between the tougher 1930's variety and the 1950's automobile clubs. If we had any role models other than our servicemen relatives, they were Leon Gorcey's bunch in its various Hollywood incarnations.
