Yeah, the Shane Meadows film 'This is England` is one of my favourites, well worth a look. there`s a couple of mini series set after the movie but they tend to get away from the skin culture.

Sad that a subculture that was rare in that it crossed racial barriers, eventually became associated with white supremacy. You can`t mention skinhead in Australia without someone immediately thinking of Romper Stomper, (admittedly also an excellent film, but the amount of people who missed the point of it is incredible)

The skins were kids from lower working class families, they couldn't afford to be ridin any fancy scooters or Nortons or wearin any fancy mod clothing. Every kid in the lower east side already had a short haircut, boots and jeans so it was a no brainer. Back then you had to stick together with yer mates.

The Mods rarely mixed with the skinheads
their beef was with the "greasers'` - Guys who liked rock music and rode Triumph/ Norton etc motorbikes and wore Leathers n Jeans, which grated against the Mod smart look and ``hip`` music and Lambretta scooters, although the skinhead trend really came in to its own at the end of the mod era,
