The first american skinhead documentary that examines the "way of life" and his origins in England and the spread to America made by skins for skins. The director Brian Davis is a skinhead and provides in his documentary an overview of the American skinhead scene and also takes a glance at England where the roots lie, but also at Germany where the biggest traditional scene exists. Jamaican influences in the late 60ies made its contribution and a worldwide and continuous movement was formed over the last 40 years, characterized by its diversity. Unfortunately the media only highlights the facet of the numb, shaven-headed right wing extremist. Reports on the the Spirit of 69 and the decisive influence of black music (Ska and Reggae) on skinhead culture are rare. In this documentary Skinheads have a say that have been part of the scene since decades and make clear what Skinheads are without lumping them all together and but making sure to present the broad spectrum of being a skinhead. No trace of racists or Nazis! Skinheads around the world! And where is subculture more colorful than in the US? On different locations a variety of bands and music genres are illuminated: from hardcore to Oi! up to Reggae and Ska, everything is present here. The Aggrolites attract Skinheads just like Sab Grey and his band Iron Crossby the way, the first and therefore oldest American Skinhead band. Many familiar faces are getting dragged before the lens of Bryan Davis, names like The Templars, Murphy´s Law, Keyside Strike and many more have become an integral part of the scene. The film offers a great variety of interviews, live recordings and footage that underlines the theme and hasn´t been seen everywhere.
