Recently received a copy of the Northern Monkeys book by our pal and some time roving reporter (on here) Bill Routledge. A rather heavyweight book featuring many nostalgic tales and turns of the origins of casual street style and youth cults via skins, scooter boys and soulies. All told from a Northern angle.
With a passionate and honest collection of tales (and photos) from Bill himself and familiar names such as Phil Thornton, Cass Pennant and Ian Hough, this is the untold chronicle of working class street fashion - real people's history.
Well worth a look if you haven't already. Northern Monkeys. DC
