More infoFrom the post-punk, massed Mod revival of the 1970s, there emerged an almost organic cultural collective - Scooter Boys. With an underlying musical focus on Northern Soul and R&B, these scooter boys developed a passion for steamy all nighters, fuelled by a fast, absorbing and intrinsically nomadic lifestyle.
They gathered in their thousands at an array of coastal resorts all over the British Isles (and beyond) for all weekend parties, making their own rules and their own enemies. The cultural icon at the epicentre of this phenomenon were the Italian motor-scooters which mobilised this unique way of life.
In the 1990s, yet another string was added to the bow of scooter culture, courtesy of artists such as Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene and Cast. These bands, along with the already ‘scooter-credible’ Paul Weller, helped fuel a new generation of scooter-loving individuals.
Gareth Brown’s youth culture classic Scooter Boys is now re-issued proudly on Independent Music Press. Brown is widely regarded as the leading world authority on scooter culture. His writings on scooter culture have been published in magazines throughout the world and a signed scooter he once owned sold for £10,000 in Japan.
