A Scene in Between (Revised Edition) (Hardcover)
A revised edition of this cult classic photographic exploration of 1980s music and fashion, alongside hundreds of never-seen-before photographs that will delight both fans of Sam Knee's work and new music and fashion aficionados.
''A glorious photographic compendium of styles and street cultures from a bygone era''. -- The Guardian
''An artist's image and music is inextricably tethered and A Scene In Between draws these threads together beautifully''. -- Vice Magazine
''A visual manifestation of Knee's personal obsession and acute knowledge of the scene - in particular, the underground style - whilst mirroring the general mood of the era''. -- Dazed Magazine
A Scene In Between sets out to excavate the sartorial treasures of the UK's 1980s guitar scenes. Using original archive photography from scenesters, band members and amateur photographers of the time, Sam Knee takes you on a fashion trip through the visual racket of pivotal indie bands including Primal Scream, Spacemen 3, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Tallulah Gosh, the Vaselines and countless others. Charity shop chic, anoraks, bowlcuts, leather trousers and stripy tees are all de-riguer in this evocative photographic historical capsule.
Seven years on from the release of the first edition, Sam Knee has expanded his photographic contact base, and built a loyal Instagram following of over 60,000 (including many big names in fashion and music). This revised edition features a new cover and intro, interviews with Johnny Marr, Deb Googe and Lawrence from Felt, plus many many more.
