The 2 first volumes of Fred Skarface's trilogy capturing skins, mods, punks, psychos and the music scene from around Europe from the early eighties to the mid-nineties. While there are a handful of posed band photos, the majority of the images are candid snapshots that really capture the style, unity and joy of these subcultures. The text included gives a message of anti-extremism, anti-racism, and unity among the “tribes of England” (despite the author being French, he sees all the “tribes” as having been derived from the English mods and skins of the 1960s). These volumes are not dated and have no publication information, primarily consisting of black and white snapshots, featuring short introductions to each section.
