The scene surrounding independent guitar-based music of 1980s Britain has been largely overlooked until now. This critically acclaimed book excavates the looks and sounds of the era, featuring hundreds of unpublished photographs of bands including My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, the Smiths, and Primal Scream.

About the Author:

Sam Knee is the author of Vintage T-Shirts (Carlton 2008), and runs London-based fashion label, The Village Green. He has written and blogged about both music and fashion for many years, and was at the heart of the 1980s underground music scene.

Review:

Knee’s anthology underscores what we already know: fashion and music thrive and feed off one another. When you think of your favorite band or look up a new one, you almost inevitably seek out a visual reference so as to hold them in your mind’s eye. An artist’s image and music is inextricably tethered and A Scene In Between draws these threads together beautifully.―nosiey



This brilliantly curated pictoral history – including postcards from Morrissey to a loyal fan alongside early shots of the Smiths, on and off stage – unpicks the scene’s influence and influences, showcases terrific photographs of bands both celebrated and largely forgotten, and highlights the stylistic commonalities within a musically varied subculture. ―thequietus



Sam Knee's weighty new tome is a beautiful pictorial look at indie music and fashion culture in a golden era sandwiched between punk and baggy.It's all about the fashions and sounds of a heady creative period in indie music during a depressing climate of unemployment and Thatcher. ―dickiefeltons



This book celebrates the underground 80s indie guitar scene in the UK illustrated in 192 pages of carefully sourced, and in some cases, never-seen-before images of key musicians from this era. Both educational and inspirational, the book takes a fashion trip from 1980-1988 featuring well known eighties musical acts. ―lazyoaf
