Reviews

Knee's anthology underscores what we already know: fashion and music thrive and feed off one another. When you think of your favorite band or look up a new one, you almost inevitably seek out a visual reference so as to hold them in your mind's eye. An artist's image and music is inextricably tethered and A Scene In Between draws these threads together beautifully.--nosiey

This brilliantly curated pictoral history - including postcards from Morrissey to a loyal fan alongside early shots of the Smiths, on and off stage - unpicks the scene's influence and influences, showcases terrific photographs of bands both celebrated and largely forgotten, and highlights the stylistic commonalities within a musically varied subculture. --thequietus

Sam Knee's weighty new tome is a beautiful pictorial look at indie music and fashion culture in a golden era sandwiched between punk and baggy.It's all about the fashions and sounds of a heady creative period in indie music during a depressing climate of unemployment and Thatcher. --dickiefeltons

This book celebrates the underground 80s indie guitar scene in the UK illustrated in 192 pages of carefully sourced, and in some cases, never-seen-before images of key musicians from this era. Both educational and inspirational, the book takes a fashion trip from 1980-1988 featuring well known eighties musical acts. --lazyoaf
