“London, 1952. A great fog invades the city. The burnt fuel smoke weighs on the air and pollutes the atmosphere under a chilling cold that makes the atmosphere even denser between humidity and humidity. Under the gray mantle of the post-war the working class suffers the harsh working conditions of heavy industry. The factory rules, the streets cut, the cinemas closed. It is not possible to see beyond the corner of the street. Panic and bewilderment invade London. Silence reigns in front of the worst phenomenon of air pollution in European history.
In the distance, they break a few steps at the end of the passage. A few steps in a group, the ghost of the mist appears from the dense gray cloud. The silhouette of a youth band and the stigma of war show his face. It’s the Teddy boys. The reaction, the revenge of young people, the effects of too much time of silence. Pompadour, narrow pants, rocker bottom shoes, vests and jackets with velvet embroidery. No one imagined it, but a subculture invaded the streets of London between pollution and darkness. “ - Chopper Monster
