'Skins: Oxblood, Sweat & Beers' takes an insightful look at the British Skinhead movement. Beginning in the late 1960s, this youth subculture evolved from the Mods and quickly became the subject of many scathing stories in the media. Often portrayed and branded as "outcasts", "yobbos", "dole dossers", "lager louts", this propaganda cast a shadow over the Skinhead cult and instilled fear from those living more conventional lifestyles. While the scene died out in the early 1970s, it was revived in the late 1970s, though was soon divided, some spiraling into far-right, politically-motivated groups that became notorious for racism, thus giving the cult an even worse reputation. This book chronicles the rise of the Skinhead in the late 1960s, including a look at the fashion and music that helped shape the scene and some of the stories that were highlighted in the press, through to its major revival in the late 70s. Included are a host of compelling, brutally frank and honest depictions by several real-life Skinheads, which give an insightful look to life within this culture.Also featured are exclusive forewords written by major artists and icons of the Skinhead scene: Nick Welsh (King Hammond), Monty Neysmith of Symarip, Neville Staple and Roddy Byers of The Specials, who all recall their own personal experiences with the Skinheads.Publisher: New Haven Publishing LtdISBN: 9781910705209
