The suedehead subculture was an early-1970s offshoot of skinhead subculture in the UK and Ireland. Although sharing similarities to 1960s skinheads, suedeheads grew their hair longer and dressed more formally, and although often working class like skinheads, some had white collar jobs, which bred a more formal attire such as brogues or loafers instead of heavy boots. Though there were similarities in musical taste at the beginning, by the late 1970’s Suedeheads were listening reggae and the book will look at 1967 – 1973, and glam rock bands such as ‘Slade’ and ‘Mott The Hoople’. Beautifully illustrated throughout and with a foreword from none other than Paul Weller, this is the definitive visual history of one of Britain’s subcultures from the 1970’s.
