New Romantics – How’s it feel to have y’r arse kicked by a fairy?


I wasn’t there (I was about three miles away) but this made me feel like I was. Superb film.

More Online Photo Archives

from Manchester District Music ArchiveExpanding on an earlier post

The Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive has extensive searchable collections of pics covering beats, teds, mods, rockers, hippies, punks, ravers and many others in the cultural interstices.

Starting out as an archive of the early ’80s New Romantics, blitzkids.com is expanding, already having punk, cyberpunk and teds galleries with a goth gallery under construction. Not the easiest site to navigate, but it rewards persistence.

Kill Your Pet Puppy has been around since the early days of punk and has the photo archive to prove it.

The Manchester District Music Archive is a huge, admirable project covering all genres and includes Queer Noise “”The hidden History Of Manchester’s Gay Music Culture.” Every town and city deserves a site, and people with as much energy, as this.
