SCORCHA! SKINS, SUEDES & STYLE FROM THE STREETS

BMG



10x7" (pre-order)

Expected Release: 14th Feb 2020

£55.99


Half a century ago, vast numbers of British working-class youths adopted a style that reflected both their attitude and tastes.

Dubbed by the country’s media as ‘skinhead’, the look starkly contrasted with that of the country’s largely middle-class ‘hippy’ population, drawing heavily on the smart, practical and stylish fashions introduced to the UK by the Windrush generation. The Caribbean influence was even more evident in the music that provided the soundtrack to the skinhead scene: reggae.
