Review

[Rockin'] should interest anyone passionate about retro styles and music that oozes vagabond cool. --The EDGE

...captures the energy and the passion of the scene, with dancers, musicians, hot rod drivers and tattoos galore. --On Milwaukee

Rockin' is Andrew Shaylor's intimate portrait of the modern rockabilly world on both sides of the Atlantic... --The Sunday Times

...captures the energy and the passion of the scene, with dancers, musicians, hot rod drivers and tattoos galore. --On Milwaukee

Rockin' is Andrew Shaylor's intimate portrait of the modern rockabilly world on both sides of the Atlantic... --Sunday Times

The images in this book look fantastic, Shaylor has managed to capture the essence and fine detail of the Rockin scene from an outsiders perspective.

...you can almost smell the grease wafting off the pages.

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…Shaylor has created a montage of photos that transport you into the world of rockabillies. With his photos you get to experience every emotion of the rockabilly weekender. From the wild exuberance, to the fatigue crash, it's all here.

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

It's all about the music, and Andrew Shaylor captures the sounds of Rockabilly in his tight shots --Whom You Know

A book of wonderful photos.

A series of iconic images that he's assembled to capture the very spirit of the rockabilly scene.

I find it fascinating that in a world where we all have cameras and anyone can take a picture, there are people out there who know how to make pictures in a way that most of us can't. People who know how to make a picture that tells stories...Shaylor has created a montage of photos that transport you into the world of rockabillies. With his photos you get to experience every emotion of the rockabilly weekender. From the wild exuberance, to the fatigue crash, it's all here.

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

Essentially a photobook, this gives outsiders and fans of the current Rockabilly scene a glimpse of the fans, bands and events that make up the rockin` scene. Great photos, well produced. This is the equivalent of The Teds book from 1979 for old and new rockabilly fans. This book should be in every library in the land. There`s a vibrant musical scene out there and, while it owes a lot to the 1950`s, is very much of today. It`s fun, and in todays pressurised world innocent fun is what we all need. Use this book as a starting point and then discover the music, old and new, on CD, record and DVD. You won`t regret it, once a Rocker always a Rocker. Buy this book now! Hopefully the definitive story of the 1970`s / 1980`s Rockabilly revival will be writen soon, there`s a challenge to authors!!

I really enjoyed this book and was recommended it from a respected member of the photographic community after starting a photography project covering the UK retro dance scene. The pictures are great, well executed and use a mixture of techniques - it takes an unusually comprehensive view (it covers, dancing, characters involved, venues, aspects of the international crowd and is an examination of a single sub-culture), the techniques Shaylor employs produce some stunning images often in low light environments. I regard this as a keepsake for lovers of rock and roll / Rockabillys old and new, a good reference of what's possible for event photographers and a wonderful holistic view of a scene.
