For enthusiasts, rockabilly isn't just a kind of music; it's a way of life. A raw fusion of rhythm and blues with country and western, rockabilly heralded the start of teenage rebellion in America in the early 1950s.

The stripped-down sound witnessed a revival in the 1970s that has continued until today, with modern rockabillies embracing not only the music, but also the clothes, cars and lifestyle of the 1950s youth counterculture. Rockin' is photographer Andrew Shaylor's unique portrayal of the contemporary rockabilly scene. Granted exclusive access at events on both sides of the Atlantic, Shaylor captures the raw energy of the music and the commitment of the rockabilly community to authenticity.

Featuring the history of the subculture by rockabilly legend Jerry Chatabox, this striking book evokes the passion and intensity of a scene that is as exciting today as it was more than 50 years ago.

    Comment on this review

    Andrew Shaylor's intimate portrait of the modern Rockabilly world on both sides of the Atlantic - SUNDAY TIMES Andrew Shaylor's excellent images capture the Rockabillies in all their frenzied vivid glory - AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER Shaylor has turned his passion of capturing sub cultures into a visual pleasure for the rest of us. For that he must be applauded. - MAGIK CITY A series of iconic images that he's assembled to capture the very spirit of the rockabilly scene - To the rockabilly fan, it's cool to see pictures of the people who make up the scene...But the book holds an interest for a wider audience too. Anyone who is interested in people can enjoy this book. - ROCKABILLY ROMP
