you think?? if you look at the DM catalog it is 95% stuff that punks/skins would never wear. when I see them being worn outside of a skinhead 'do or punk gig, it is always by normals.

quick pic from over the weekend, DJ Mick Jeffries from UK (far right) and Marco/Sussi from Sweden/Canada were visiting town for a big skinhead reggae weekender. Mick is an original from 68-9. Good folks, good times.

In fact working class kids seem to have avoided ' youth cults ' while the student types happliy take bits of Mod / Skin / Punk .

I used to go to a Soul/Reggae Do,in Kingsland Road(Coast To Coast).It was mainly Students that went there,but because they all seemed up for it, it started me going back to Reggae Dos.smile.gif

You may call them Normals but they think they are subculture.DM's certainly have a more mainstream visibility,but they are still a subculture fashion in the USofA.

There was a long stretch in the late 90s where I don't think there was a more ubiquitous shoe in North America.

And also don't forget 80s alternative comedians!

I used to love that night when i was still living in London. I think one of the best things about it for me was the mixed audience and that it didn't have any elitist vibe. Great high quality music that interestingly managed to cater for everyone.
