Researching, exploring and reporting British inspired Subculture and Art past and present. Our subculture blog delves into the roots of Northern Soul and simultaneously reports on the contemporary Northern Soul scene. It interviews emerging new wave bands that themselves are inspired by the original punk bands appearing across another page of the Blog.
It charts the evolution of Subcultures from their emergence in the 60’s and 70’s to a more inclusive and equitable movement today. The underground and subcultures are never fixed in one place or time. They have strong and meaningful reference points but are always evolving.
