I myself was into the whole psychobilly thing for a while and when was the last time you saw a psychobilly?

Can't comment on the teds or New Romantics, but there are a lot of mods still around, and I was happily pissed with a few hundred psychobillies about 5 or 6 weeks back at Bedlam Breakout.. they're still there, as are the 'roots' skins.

This may be a UK only observation, but to me ska seems to have lost its crowd. Look around at any gig you go to these days and the place is bouncing with skaters, punks, metalheads (whaaaaaaat???), wannabe surfers and assorted other 'types', but no sign of the traditional ska fan, the skinhead.
Sure, you stick a 60s ska legend on and you'll find them all dusting down the Fred Perrys and brogues, but face them with a new offbeat band and where the hell are they all hiding?
Has ska become a cross section thing, or has skinhead become so tainted with the racist brush that it is a no longer acceptable fashion statement?

The odd thing is that there are a lot of bands out there that still hold to the skinhead style on stage, but it's not picked up by their fans.... weird.

And here's the web page for the label that last series came out on. You may notice a theme running down the banner ads
