TRIBE: MADE IN BRITAIN: A Personal HistoryMARTIN ROACH ET AL Book Number: 90157 Product format: Paperback
First hand interviews with key players from pivotal moments in youth culture - skinheads, goths, punks, grebos, scooter boys, ravers, casuals, Two Tone, Mods, rockers, bikers, psychobilly - British Tribes are usually music related genres, some of which at times have clashed violently yet in the social media age there is an overwhelming spirit of much greater mutual tolerance. The book is crammed with first-hand accounts of these spectacularly colourful subcultures, what they wore, the music they listened to, how they lived, and perhaps most importantly of all, why they existed in the first place. Britain can boast a rich underbelly of creative youth subculture which has indelibly shaped and infected global culture. Five decades since the first teenager arrived, Britain broke the mould and continues to reinvent and spew out a myriad of youth subcultures. 207pp, paperback, colour and mono photos and check out those haircuts!
