I am loving the new book; The Bag I'm in: Underground Music and Fashion in Britain 1960-1990 by Sam Knee
It documents youth cults by using lo-fi pics taken by mainly non professional photographers and then at the end of the book has some wonderful illustrations by Florence Bamberger.
I was lucky enough to be in my teens and 20s and live through and be part of so many of these. In 1973 I went to see David Bowie as a 12 year old nascent glam rocker.
Wayne and mum Maureen
From then it was northern soul (how did I get into Wigan Casino as a fresh faced 13 year old in 1974?)
Disco Soul Boy in 1976
Then punk in 1976
The Mod Revival (Wayne second from left) in 1979
Indie Kid (Wayne in his band in 1979)
A smiling sideways take on Goth in 1980
A New Romantic (Wayne , peeking round the pillar with Gerra and her sister Frances in 1981)
A Rare Groover in 1981
And a Raver (with Jack the first born in 1987)
So some unashamed promotion here. The book covers all the looks in The Bag I’m In...here are some pics for all those youth cults..in date order:
