Bikes, Birds and Brylcreem – A Portrait of England's Rockers With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes - BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons, and Royal Enfields - Rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed Mods. Elvis, James Dean, and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult. Friedrichs follows the British rocker tribe as its members congregate in parking lots, pubs, cafes, dance and pool halls, as well as huge gatherings at Jacks Hill and the Ace Cafe. Alternating between rich, vibrant colour and gritty black and white, these photographs capture a spirit of unapologetic defiance in clothing as well as attitude, every bit as strong today as it was sixty years ago. Trenchant and revealing commentary from Friedrichs' subjects sheds light on the impulses, yearnings, and motivations of this enduring international rebel chic subculture. Bikes, Birds und Brylcreem – Englands Rockerszene im Portrait Das Phänomen der Rocker geht in Amerika bis in die Zeit vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zurück und wurde später durch Elvis Presley, James Dean und Marlon Brando popularisiert. Das Herz der europäischen Rockerszene liegt in England, wo das traditionsreiche Ace Café in London oder Brighton Beach zu beliebten Szenetreffs avancierten. Sie bilden die Kulisse für dieses Buch voller spannender Momentaufnahmen britischer Rocker in der Welt des Rock’n’Roll, geprägt von ihrer charakteristischen Kleidung, ihren Motorrädern und natürlich ihrer Musik.
