I’m old enough to remember seeing teddy boys in town when I was a kid. They might as well have been from ancient history. It’s mad when you think that the modern day retro equivalent is ~1996….

I got to know the 80s Dublin teds and rockabillies when I joined a rockabilly band. Most are still into the scene, those who can still sport quiffs.

The colour of those fashions is really cool. I was looking at a house renovation thing a while ago and they were stripping paint. in this mad posh looking house they kept finding pink and denying it would ever had been pink. The lighting would have been a few gas lamps, followed by maybe one crappy lightbulb so i kinda thought pinks would have come up as very calm colouring in that low light. The rockabillys woulda been going to venues that woulda had loads of light as a feature of opulence of the time, so super bright contrasts woulda been the way to stand out. I think anywhooo.
