British Subcultures: Crane.tv & Selectism Speak to Don Letts

Hopefully you’ve already taken a trip through Fred Perry’s excellent Subcultures series, if not we recommend you head there now. Produced by the legendary Don Lett’s – DJ, director, broadcaster, the man who introduced punk to Bob Marley and hung out in Jamaica with Johnny Rotten and Richard Branson – Few are better placed to walk through Britain’s incredible history of well-dressed Youth Cultures than this all round knowledgeable fella. With the help of Fred Perry, a label who have found relevance across the decades, the series sheds light on significant movements from Skinhead and SoulBoys, Rocker to Rave. Curious to know more, we called in the guys at Crane.tv to work their video magic. Here Letts speaks on his early days, his work with Fred Perry and the future of subcultures.
