Description

In the period from 1955 until 1960, a revolution occurred within the culture of young people in Britain—a revolution of music, fashions, habits and beliefs, but especially of music.

In The Beat Goes On, Colin Miller draws on his own experience as well as contemporary written sources to describe the development of a ‘teenage’ culture in the city of Norwich during the early days of rock ‘n’ roll.

Charting the careers of many local musicians of the late nineteen-fifties (no matter how brief), he provides an insight into the influences and cultural changes that took place in Britain during this time.
