Book on pre-order: Suedeheads by Paul Anderson

Just spotted that the upcoming Suedeheads by Paul Anderson book has just gone up for pre-order ahead of its August release.

The book is being published by Music Sales and covers 304 pages. It’s likely to be a good one too. Paul Anderson is thorough in his research judging by past releases and I can’t see this one being any different.

No cover art as yet, hence the picture of Bronco Bullfrog from the cult classic movie of the same name, which is one of the few movie representations of the short-lived suedehead movement.

If you want to know more, this book should be all you need. Here is the official write-up:

The suedehead subculture was an early-1970s offshoot of skinhead subculture in the UK and Ireland. Although sharing similarities to 1960s skinheads, suedeheads grew their hair longer and dressed more formally, and although often working class like skinheads, some had white collar jobs, which bred a more formal attire such as brogues or loafers instead of heavy boots.

Though there were similarities in musical taste at the beginning, by the late 1970’s Suedeheads were listening to 2-Tone artists such ‘The Beat’, and glam rock bands such as ‘Slade’ and ‘Mott The Hoople’. Beautifully illustrated throughout and with a foreword from none other than Paul Weller, this is the definitive visual history of one of Britain’s subcultures from the 1970s.

Sounds like a winner to me. If you want to pre-order, you can do that now, with the price at £25 ahead of the 15th August 2019 shelf date.

Note that I will update the cover art as and when it is available.
