Spoke to Dave earlier and he mentioned there were a "few more" on eBay up for sale....
Not sure how many more will be produced, so if you haven't got a copy, I wouldn't recommend waiting much longer.. Wink

Good spot, Pete - let's hope they all go.

I wonder how many copies have been produced?

+1 I'm sure there has to have been 1,000+ printed, and sold.... Smile

Thanks Pete Smile Not sure how many there are left as it's a week or so since I looked (I know the listing ends on the 14th).

I'm sure we'll carry on printing until the demand dries up, but the hard truth is that unlike during the period of the first BS we're not seeing as many new converts to the music. We really need another Skinhead revival!

Will you be retiring on the proceeds?

Around 2009, there were loads of Skinhead friendly Reggae nights, lots of weblogs, websites, etc., all over the place! Now, it seems the tide has gone out to sea, again....maybe another one will get started by "BS2".....

Skinhead Times Publishing, for me. It was hard finding out things about the cult, without someone trying to get you into S.H.A.R.P, or convincing you that Skrewdriver was the real sound of "Skinhead".....

All I wanted to do, was wear the clothes, crop my hair, listen to Reggae, and have fun with the ladies.....until, I discovered beer. Then add beer to the list, right before ladies.....but, after Reggae.....Mr. Green

I remember when I got my mitts on a used copy of "BS 1"...I carried that book everywhere....I was always reading it, learning something new each time....well chuffed, doesn't begin to describe, how happy I was I had purchased a copy.....and, it was then, that Marc Griffiths became one of my heroes....I wouldn't have the collection today, if he hadn't played such an integral part of my formative years, in Reggae collecting, which has prompted me, to keep digging, and finding new tunes.... Cool Cool

Not sure Joe. If the last one sells, we'll have done it within the timeframe so it's an indication that we can still sell 20 in a month. If not, then we'll need to think again (and bear in mind that I'm not sure the printers will do a run of anything less than 20).

Sorry - I've made a mistake here. The listing that's just ended was in fact for 10 books (i.e. the first tranche), rather than the full twenty. So, in that one month listing we've actually only sold nine books, with a further eleven to go (now relisted as the second tranche).

So, it may well be that this is the last batch ever - if we can flog the next batch in a month, then all well and good, but I doubt whether we'll want to run the risk of financing books that aren't selling for months on end.
