FROM Ozzy Osbourne to Duran Duran, and not forgetting UB40, Birmingham is Britain’s very own music hit factory.
Now, in news that will be music to the ears of fans of the city’s bands, the National Lottery has awarded a £50,000 grant to a community heritage project celebrating that history.
The Creative Community Network will be exploring Birmingham’s musical tradition from 1965 to 1985. Directors have set up a website and are hoping to create a heritage trail, taking music lovers on a tour of the city’s past, as well as a DVD of interviews. More from the Birmingham Mail
One of my favorite bands of all time, Steel Pulse also hails from this little town. I had the pleasure of meeting singer David Hinds when they came to a mix session back in 1985 and I was just an intern at Soundworks Digital in NYC. I was so stoked, I could barely breathe!
