- Dancehall 1969 (Vol. 2)

'Peel's championing of reggae was criticised by hippies and then punks. But the more hostile the reaction, the more Peel would play it, and the juxtaposition of different genres of music on his show inspired groups such as the Clash to experiment with different styles.'

The original skinheads were working-class British youths in the 1960s, influenced by the mod and Jamaican rude boy styles in their clothing and music. The subculture wasn't based on politics or race in the early days, but more on the desire to rebel against the British class system, which greatly limited social and job-related opportunities for young people, and against the flower power and high fashion styles of the 60s. Here are ten more belters to help ease you into summer.
