33 Black and White Photographs Capture the London Rockin’ Scene of the Early 1980s

While studying graphic design in London in the 1980s, Adrian Sensicle met a man nicknamed Rockin' Dave, who would introduce Adrian to the city's rockabilly scene. During those nights out, Adrian took many rolls of film of the London rockin' scene.

“Original 1950s clothes were quite easy to find and relatively cheap, remember the 1950s were only 30 years back and there was not the nostalgia industry that there is now, so much of the stuff was just being thrown out,” he said.

“I didn’t go to the clubs to take the photos, I went because I loved the music, the style and the dancing. So, when I did take my camera it was not as a visitor, but as an accepted member of the scene.”
