"Strangely enough it was exactly 30 years ago that I first met Kevin Shields and Colm O Ciosoig, after I’d replied to an advertisement placed by then bass player, Mark Ross, in a Dublin record shop. The music scene in Dublin was extremely conservative and stifling at the time – the primary influence that deposited a rather large Bono-shaped turd in the communal punch bowl was, of course, U2. I tend to regard the Virgin Prunes as providing the most significant gleam of light (and darkness) to illuminate the otherwise drab and dismal wilderness of casually calculated conformity that constituted the creative cul-de-sac that was the Dublin music scene at that time." - Excerpted from My Bloody Valentine: A reflection by David Conway, founding member of My Bloody Valentine

A Scene In Between

Fashion and Independent Music in the UK 1983-89

Published by Cicada Books
Text by Sam Knee.

Featured image, of Spaceman 3, is reproduced from <I>A Scene In Between</I>.The mid to late 1980s indie scenes in Britain--from C86 to Shoegaze--are a neglected moment in music history. There’s been much coverage of punk, postpunk and the acid-house rave era of the early 90s, but the scene surrounding independent guitar-based music of the mid-80s has been largely overlooked. A Scene In Between looks at Britain’s fashions, personalities and youth cultures from that era. Bands featured include Television Personalities, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Smiths, The Pastels, The Vaselines and more obscure bands such as The Shop Assistants, The Flatmates and countless others. Author Sam Knee has reconnected with a vast network of people and resources to unearth literally hundreds of previously unpublished photographs of the bands, fans, clubs and street fashion of the time. Taking a sartorial angle, he looks at anoraks, oversized jumpers, leather trousers, bowl-cut hairdos, blouse shirts, stripey tees and box jackets. Dave Conway of My Bloody Valentine and Douglas Hart of The Jesus and Mary Chain contribute reminiscences.
