‘All Shook Up’: A Flash of the Fifties
Joseph Connolly (au). Welcome back to the Fifties in the UK. The privations of war are done with, & a new, young Queen are heralding a bright future. Brown Utility furniture, drab old tea shops & make-do-&-mend clothing are about to be swept away by colorful coffee bars serving frothy cappuccinos. All things American are coveted (in particular Elvis, Wurlitzer juke boxes, Coke & Pepsi, denim jeans & TV dinners) & very soon come to blend into Britain’s own areas of novelty & vitality: the Teddy Boys’ drape jackets & quiffs, most outrageously, together with the layered, stiff & colored crepe petticoats of their jiving girlfriends -- with rock ‘n’ roll 78s & 45s spinning on the portable Dansette. Shows you everything the dazzling 1950s meant to young people in Britain. Photos.
