Shortening of 'seamed stockings', vintage or reproduction nylon or sometimes silk hosiery with a seam going up the back of the leg from under the toes to the stocking top, or welt. The stockings should be shaped to the leg (fully-fashioned) and are sewn up the back, hence the seam. Modern seams are often purely aesthetic and are not neccessary to the construction of the stocking.
Phwoar! Look at that wiggle! She looks good in that tight skirt with seams 'n' heels.

Genre of music made by white suburban kids in the sixties trying to emulate the rockin' rhythm & blues of the time. So called because it was practised in the garage.
The sound was raw and raucous and continues in one form or another to this very day. Also known as garage punk or sixties punk.
That brainless dance music aint garage! The sixties punk of The Sonics is garage!

A long dead British genre of music combining rockabilly and 80's garage trash with B-movie, horror and zombie theatrics. The Meteors claimed to be the only true psychobilly band despite their ditching of the revered double bass. Other example are the Guana Batz, Krewmen, Quakes, Demented Are Go, Skitzo and the Coffin Nails.
Klub Foot was the venue to go to.

A fan of such music characterized by the mutating of a traditional rockabilly pomp into a zombified quiff, shaved to the bone at the back and sides. Sometimes with a shaved section on top which left a horseshoe quiff.
~Only the Meteors are pure Psychobilly.
~Hmmm, bit of a childish attitude there.
