Newport became the place which attracted countless amounts of bands to play throughout the generations. Stories of which echo in folklore to this day.

Liverpool had the Cavern, Manchester the Hasienda & New York CGBGs - every town has an iconic place that young people meet to express themselves.

The dedication to the cause included local independent promoters, record stores, labels, fanzines & club owners - a complete subculture.

Young people with diverse musical addictions attempted to indulge themselves with their passion for music & alternative lifestyles.
