Stoked.... one of the ska artists I've loved for years is considering letting me use some of the lyrics to one of his songs to open a chapter in the book about skinhead girls I'm writing! King of the world baby!
No hints yet, but if you happen to follow me on Facebook, and know my love of Judge Dread (that's a hint, but it's not a silly song... so okay, ONE hint) then there is a chance that you might know who I'm talking about if you have read some of my music reviews.
On a side note, if you are a new ska, reggae, punk or oi band and happen to have a song that you'd like to have promoted through this book, get in touch with me. Anything to help the scene...

Please feel free to spread the word about this book along, and any skinhead girls, or former skinhead girls please feel free to answer the questions posted in the earlier post, or just e-mail me and I'll send them to you. Yes I DO want to hear from you!

I was reading an interview with Neil Gaiman, where he went on to list what he listens to while he writes. Mostly Tori Amos it seems. To each their own I guess, the man still writes some killer stuff.
Here are 5 albums I've been listening to while writing today, just because I love them so much, and think you lot should give them a listen too.
1, The Slackers - Waisted Days
2, Flogging Molly - Within A Mile Of Home
3, The Business - Suburban Rebels
4, Judge Dread - Bedtime Stories
5, The Aggrolites -Reggae Hit L.A.
What Can I Say, skinheads love our music!

I have decided that I will use a few photos in the book. BUT... and here is the thing... I would like pics of scooter runs, shows, parties and older pics from the 80's and before... no pin up styles.

Just for the record, this book has NOTHING to do with hate. Black, white, brown, Asian, Native, mixed... Skinhead is about what is in your head and your heart, not the colour of your skin.
Any and all submissions that have anything to do with hate in any form will just be binned. We all bleed red after all.

There are many many different websites and magazines out there dedicated to skinhead girls, filled with pictures of them, with contests looking for the best looking one, etc etc etc. Suicide Girls and Oitomboy have more adult pictures for those looking to...well, looking for more adult pictures. What I'm looking for would be old pictures from the 1960's, 1970's, and even the 1980's. Crew pictures, scooter run / club pictures, band and gig pictures. Even modern pictures are good, so long as they are pictures of you and your mates, and not glammed up sexy photo shoot pictures. Real and having fun are good, not the kind you'd tack to the ceiling to keep you warm on those cold lonely nights.
Remember... your mum might one day flip through this book. Let's try not to give her a heart attack.
