I love when I find a book that investigates a particular scene or sub-culture.  Beth Lesser’s Dancehall captures the Jamaican Dancehall culture of the 1980s with the same level of sincerity and curiosity that Brassai exhibited while capturing Paris nightlife in the 1930s.

Albert Minott of The Jolly Boys at Willow Wind Bar, Port Antonio, Jamaica. Photo by Cedric Angeles. Once an outpost of international glamour, Port Antonio is now getting its groove back. The Jolly Boys, one of the island's oldest bands, were there at the start. Patrick Neate joins them for rum, reggae and reminiscences. Visit www.bahighlife.com

There are many reasons to love the music of Jamaica - not least is the fashion! Great photo of Eek A Mouse in 1983 by Beth Lesser. Her book on the rise of Dancehall looks worth a read as well.
