Music

Be forewarned, for better or worse, that the skinhead reggae songs on the last album listed are not actually performed by the feistily suspendered skinheads on the cover of the CD (though wouldn't it be cool if they were?), but are merely shining examples of said skinheads' alleged record collections. Also be advised that most of the later-recording recently archived participants in the genre below had considerably more hair, frequently on their chins as well as their heads. As did the rock guys.
