Would like to know what book that comes from! I wonder if that's the same Dave Hendley who in the later 70s would work on the Dub Vendor stall in Clapham, visit Jamaica (and take some era defining photos) and start the Sufferers Heights label. http://www.americanphotomag.com/jamaicas-golden-age-music-captured-filmhttp://www.hardformat.org/collections/reggaes-got-soul/http://davehendley.tumblr.com/

M-o-M Loch Ness Monster was issued on a Trojan subsidiary label called Grape. Trojan had 30+ sub-labels going at various points (many devoted to the output of a specific producer eg Upsetter). Pama had a dozen or so sub-labels (Winston Shand's 'Throw me corn' came out on their Bullet label) and there were smaller outfits like Junior Lincoln's Bamboo & Banana labels who mainly distributed Coxsone Dodd's Studio One productions. Trojan, Pama and Junior Lincoln probably...
'Meet the Crombie Boys' is from the 28 March 1971 issue of the Sunday Times Magazine. I've always thought it was a London picture (Chelsea or QPR scarf?) and guess it was taken sometime in the previous month or so. It should be a good indication of the 'look' in early '71 in London.  The photographer Red Saunders was based in Hackney, at some stage he lost all his archives in an arson attack and is apparently reluctant to talk about the loss so is unlikely to be able or...
Botolph, It's tricky defining 'revival' reggae exactly as it can mean all things to all people. It's most commonly used to describe music from 1959/60 up to 79/80 just before the change to 'dancehall' rhythms. Within this timeframe you can find loads of sub-genres and individual small scenes with preferences for certain styles - at a guess what Browniecj might be particularly refering to is the non 'roots' Jamaican vocal tunes from the 71-75 period of which there are...
 sigh - would really prefer to leave this particular discussion but given people are (unfairly imho) putting the boot into the LCC staff here rather than the exhibition organisers.... The complaints probably do come from people who didnt realise there were plenty of black skins in the original days - millions of people live their lives happily without being aware of this fact. The worst thing about the exhibition is that the Diversity Officer (who we've decided here is a...
It's probably been mentioned on here before but Paulo Hewitt wrote a book (http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Fashion-Football-Beckham-Label/dp/1840188073/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1379671865&sr=8-1&keywords=the+fashion+of+football) where he goes into some detail about the disputed origins of 'casual' style and the London look Browniecj is describing (and its links to the reggae 'sticksman' style) get discussed there. Back on topic - it also discusses mod and original skinhead via...
" Up to that point they had always been knit with natural,country wool  colours.Then along came the Acrylic knock-offs in Black/white/ Dayglo orange and similar ! What an eyesore !"     ....like the kid on the cover of the Upsetters 'Clint Eastwood' album? Who is also sporting monkey boots (I think), a classic pair of pictures of the 'little brother' type skinhead i'd imagine:         I've just joined a reggae band as it happens, playing...
Ignoring the price tag (although I notice it does qualify for free delivery which is nice!) how would a jacket like this have been received at the time?   http://www.stuartslondon.com/coats-jackets-c23/jackets-c25/levis-vintage-levis-vintage-1960s-suede-bomber-jacket-blue-70748-001-p9672   Personally I think it's lovely, just slightly beyond my means.....   Off Topic about reggae in New York late sixties/seventies as mentioned above - it was an underground...
