>This is the BBC broadcast version of Rock Family Trees all about the band in and around Liverpool from 1976 through to around 1983. The official BBC recording is no longer available, this is my VHS conversion. Its not exactly HD quality but I think that just adds to the ambience. Enjoy!

There has been loads written about the ‘scene’ and this is a decent piece to get you started.


Rock Family Trees BBC description
A series using family trees compiled by music journalist Pete Frame to explore the dramas that lie behind some of the best-known bands. Fifteen years after the original Mersey beat sound, Liverpool again became the breeding ground for many top bands, and they all started out in a damp basement club called Eric’s. The bands include Echo and the Bunnymen, the Teardrop Explodes, OMD, the Lightning Seeds and the KLF.
