The Business of Music

Sara Cohen

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the music business and how music was used to contribute on, and profit from, large-scale projects aimed at urban regeneration in Liverpool and its region during the 1980s and 1990s. It looks at the struggle between the economic, the aesthetic and the social, as well as the conflicting interests between practitioners, consultants, politicians and funding agencies in the city. The chapter discusses the so-called ‘rhetoric of the local’, which includes civic pride and a strong sense of local belonging as well as parochialism and xenophobic defensiveness. It also considers the Liverpool City Council's Arts and Cultural Industries strategy and the creation of the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts spearheaded by Paul McCartney.

Keywords:   Liverpool, music business, urban regeneration, funding, rhetoric of the local, Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Paul McCartney
