Well I myself love reggAE (where the fuck does reggAY come from anyway) and ska, I don’t care much for soul and I know plenty or REAL skinheads that just don’t like any of that. So sick of holier than thou shit like this in the scene.
A great comment there about the music side of things.
I don’t think it’s fair to say that you can only be a skinhead if you listen to reggae and soul. The reality is, practically no one would give a shit about the skinhead cult if it wasn’t for punk. How many skins do you know that got into it from reggae/soul and not from punk? If they have, they probably got into it within the last 3 years through THIS IS ENGLAND or something.
Would anyone hold reggae so highly if it wasn’t for their attempt at cornering the market of the skinhead culture? If songs hadn’t been directed at skinheads, would you still have checked it out?
I don’t really give a shit about reggae. I dig the big names, I dig the Blues Busters, but I’d rather listen to Oi, punk, the rolling stones, or American soul artists.
I really don’t understand how someone couldn’t like soul music. That’s just crazy to me.
Look smart, dress smart, play your part, and don’t listen to fucking techno.
