The Rock-itt : November 2011
The new breed of English musician, singer/song writers idolised Elvis the King and wrote and sang in a similar vein. But there was something entirely different and unique about the sound as it evolved. Not only was the music unique but also the fashion was evolving into something which had its own brand of personality and complimented the new sound which the music brought to the public. Finally a name was given to the sound, “Merseybeat” named after the Mersey River from the same area. Now the world of music was about to be turned on its ear once more by the incredible British Invasion of the sixties. I’ll be back in our Christmas issue with a whole new generation of music history which once again infected the world like a musical pandemic. Get set for the British invasion, spearheaded by the Fab Four.....the Beatles. As they say, things in music don’t change, they just evolve and reinvent into another fashion of the same thing because basically all music is virtually related and even though it sounds somewhat different, the roots are all from the same plot of earth. In the late fifties and early sixties, even though Elvis was still up there knocking them dead, belting out great songs and using other skills to become a motion picture star, far across the seas in the cold dreary sea port of Liverpool, England, another breed of rocker was emerging from the dank basements of disused buildings and stages of old run down movie theatres.
