London has always attracted those who resist mainstream beliefs, ways of life and cultural norms. 1950s Teddy Boys; 1960s mods and hippies; 1970s skinheads, rastas, glam rockers and punks; 1980s and 90s rappers, goths and ravers. Barry Miles has both participated in and written about the London underground scene. In conversation with John Harris he explores London's counter-culture - the creative, avant garde, permissive, anarchic - that sprang up in the city in the decades following the Second World War.

Barry Miles has written extensively about music and London's underground cultural scene. His books include London Calling: A Countercultural History of London since 1945 as well as numerous books on The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, Rolling Stones amongst others.

John Harris is a journalist and author. Having previously written for NME, Q, Mojo and Rolling Stone, he now writes regularly for the Guardian on politics, popular culture and music.
