YOUTH SUBCULTURE I NEVER KNEW ABOUT ALERT - SHARPIES
Why is it that whenever the good Dr. Dankenstein pays me a visit I always end up zoning out to youtube footage of skinheads, skinhead reggae and skinheads dancing? Well, on my latest excursion into the dregs of youtube, I happened upon footage of a subculture I never knew existed. In the early '70's the children of British immigrants to Australia took elements of mod and skinhead culture and made it look WAY more white-trash. Shaved heads with mullets, Fred Perry's with bell bottoms and platform shoes. Eh. Noish. Plus they listen to hard rock and stuff. Hahaha - weird. Anyways, check 'em. Sharpies. As in, "dressing sharp".
