Punk fashion is the clothing, hairstyles, cosmetics, jewelery, and body modifications of the punk counterculture. Punk fashion varies widely, ranging from Vivienne Westwood designs to styles modeled on bands like The Exploited to the dressed-down look of North American hardcore. The distinct social dress of other subcultures and art movements, including glam rock, skinheads, rude boys, greasers, and mods have influenced punk fashion.

“These images have been scanned from my original photographs before they disintegrated after being kept in storage in a cold damp cellar for over a year. Included here are gig photos of Amebix, Conflict, The English Dogs and Disorder, playing live in Manchester during the 1980s. Most of the photos here were taken in Manchester in the 1980s and include other punks from that time.”
