Oi! (Chinese style)

There are plenty of skinheads in China, meaning plenty of men with shaved heads. But not many who worship English skinhead culture down to wearing wear lace-up DMs and braces and changing their name to Oi.
I'd met Oi Mark and his two-tone girlfriend last year at our Rockarchive exhibition, and again yesterday. He gave me a stylish tin box full of 50+ photos he'd taken of skinheads both in Britain and China. Between my bad Chinese and his bad English, we managed to have a half-decent chat. Not a subculture that's dear to my heart, but this particular angle was something new.
