Please don't take this one too seriously. It's just for fun as a by-product
of the newest film poll.

So please tick the musical sub-culture that is or has been most prominent in your life, from when you were growing up to today in choice of clothing, choice of music, choice of friends,pubs,gigs.

And I promise not to laugh at any new romantics....

Remember this is the sub-cultures around the music not the music itself

The first songs I remember noticing while I was at primary school were ska. And the songs I always heard in my dad's lorry when I went to work with him were soul and ska.

Mr Dogstand, what is it going to be sir? :wink:

Anthropologists have discovered a little known youth music subculture, Cardiacs Fans (and sometimes, 'Fishies', 'The Fishpond','Cardiaddicts') which they say is wholly unrelated to any previously observed. Mainly to be found in the southern regions of Great Britain, they tend to wear black shirts with designs of unpleasant-looking daisies, and cartoon scrawls of men and houses, which signifies to others of their kind that they are followers of 'Cardiacs music' and patronize the 'Alphabet Business Concern'.
While they mingle with other subcultures and pass seemingly unnoticed by society at large, scientists believe they can be classified as an entirely new and distinct social sub-grouping.

...'Metalhead' for me...my first and longest period as a member of any specific subculture...

...it mutated into Goth/Punk/Hardcore, Indie kid, Grunger, 80s New Wave fallout misfit, Crusty, Raver - they all kind of bled into each other, and I often found myself straddling several differant subcultures at the same time...

I think *looks at cd rack* ive been apart of all of these during my short life span.

now my sub-culture is walking to the local sipping a pint of brown beverage and occasionally participating in a game of dominoes and conversing about alotments and how it was back in the day.
There's thousands of people just like me all over

METALHEAD!!!!!!

well, actually, my first ever record that i bought was "let's Dance" by Bowie, after that i bought "one for the road" by the kinks, then i discovered Iron Maiden, and subsequently started sowing patches on my denim jacket portraying eddie in all sorts of horrible satanic settings. ofcourse i had studded wristbands!!!
and my jeans were way too tight!!
and god did i think i looked cool and tough!
looking back on it i must have looked a right silly nugget!
the i discovered the like sof napalm deat and carcass and made it a point to try and collect all the earacxhe albums, a passion i gave up very quickly again as soon as i realized that i only liked them because everyone else hated them.
then a wonderful thing happened, i was wandering around amsterdam and bumped into a friend of mine, who happened to work at paradiso, he invited me to a gig that night which i went to, and i was blown away by a little known band that maybe some of you may have heard of, they were called cardiacs!!!

when i was 8 the first tape i brought-because my older brother was into this sort of music-was AC/DC's live album for those about to rock.
my brother was/is into metal big time,and me dad was a bit of a mod and me mum's more laid back,into stuff like carpenters...right ol mix!
went through abit of a metal phase when till i was about 13 then i heard peter gabriel and robert parmer-then got the albums SO and Riptide,both great still now..
then after getting all their stuff-got into early genesis,which then lead me into prog,which then got me back into good ol guitar stuff like led zepplin,then grunge and folk-all along the way dipping into various other types of music ponds along the way.as a result i got a messed up selection of music to enjoy :D
