This chapter discusses Liverpool music and musicians from the 1960s to the 1990s. Topics covered include the Beatles as inheritors of Liverpool's musical tradition rather than its inventors; the emergence in the mid-1970s of a new group of art students who sparked a musical revival across the city; Liverpool writers' rejection of the synthetic modernism of chart pop in the 1980s; and the supremacy of dance music in the 1990s.

Keywords:   Liverpool music, Liverpool's musical tradition, musicians, art students, dance music, pop music
