Mad Ian, Stockport

Post  xray on Thu Apr 17, 2008 3:39 am

The real "mad Ian" was a mischevious eccentric who hung around Heaton Moor in the eighties. He was short and skinny with a mop of curly black hair. He was about 35 but looked and acted like an 8 year old scamp. He had something Victorian urchinesque about him, and he had an artful dodger role in the community, hanging around with all the local chavs who'd dare him to do stunts. Most of the time he rode around on his bike(like tour de France Tony except on the obligatory kids BMX) and when you met him he'd start bullshitting about how his dad was James Bond or how he used to be a Commando in Vietnam, and he conveyed all this flannel with an irritating high pitch whine. More often than not he'd be spotted up to no good; there'd be a crowd of young chavs and then Mad Ian, usually on a roof of say, the supermarket near the Moor Top, and they'd all be lobbing stuff at him, or daring him to jump or fly, or break in through a skylight and nick some cheap cider (pre Alco-pop days) Mad Ian could also be spotted on Railway Lines and Motorways, up on high bridges and sometimes tied to railings.

Mad Ian once, famously, rode his crap seventies racer into a local petrol station and started filling up, wastefully pouring gallons of petrol all over his bike and the floor in a futile attempt o fill his bike up.
