Liverpool in the 1970s.... The Beatles had gone, but the expectations remained. It took many years until, with the arrival of punk rock, the city'€™s tunesmiths were able to regroup and usher in a new generation of musical innovation which would form the backbone of the UK's music scene throughout the 1980s. From Eric'€™s to the top of the charts, the city found its feet and once again became the epicentre of cool.

Revolutionary Spirit charts the rise of Liverpool and its music in the latter half of the 1970s and throughout the 1980s, from Deaf School and Spitfire Boys, via Zoo Records and Probe Plus, and onto the chart successes of Frankie, OMD, the Bunnymen and many others. Featuring cornerstone contributions from the city'€™s brightest stars - Bill Drummond, Holly Johnson, Ian Broudie, Pete Burns, Ian McCulloch, Julian Cope, Lee Mavers and co -€“ and many more lesser-known legends, this is the unique tale of a city trying to find itself with the world watching -€“ and succeeding.
