    The Mersey Sound PDF ò The MerseyMOBI :´ mersey ebok, sound book, The Mersey download, The Mersey Sound PDFPublished in the same year as fellow Liverpudlians The Beatles released the “Magical Mystery Tour” double EP which came on the heels of their landmark “Sergeant Pepper’s” Liverpool in the 60s was certainly a city bursting with culture and creativity A lot of this hasn’t dated well at all and is very much a product of its time and place which is both its strength and weakness No doubt it would bring warm floods of nostalgia rushing back for those who were there and remember but for younger generations or people not from the UK this could be a real head scratching puzzleHenri’s efforts seem to be nothing than a collection of forgettable mediocre musings which remind me of something you’d find scrawled inside the notes of a school pupil’s jotter Patten’s contributions appear rambling lengthy and unsatisfying I

    The Mersey Sound PDF ò The MerseyMOBI :´ mersey ebok, sound book, The Mersey download, The Mersey Sound PDFI picked up on this collection after the BBC4 documentary Sex Chips PoetryI'm pleased to say that I am a firm fan of Roger McGough and have a newfound appreciation of Brian Patten but am sorry to say Adrian Henri does nothing for meWhile McGough and Patten are thoughtful and droll in their respective verse I found Henri's writing brash stilted in its list formats and creepy in its portrayal of schoolgirlsThat being said generally the shorter pieces had greater impact while the longer poems almost lost me entirelyAll in all though I can see why The Mersey Sound was so influential in getting poetry back in

    The Mersey Sound PDF ò The MerseyMOBI :´ mersey ebok, sound book, The Mersey download, The Mersey Sound PDFSince this anthology was originally published 50 years ago this year I thought I would at long last get around to reading this charity shop purchase It was forged in the decade I was born in and so the culture around it was in the background as I grew up but the Belfast of my childhood was primarily shaped by the political troubles rather than pop culture and despite supporting one of its Liverpool's two football teams all my life it is a city I don't know at all But the similar industrial and cultural histories of Liverpool and Belfast only separated by the Irish Sea and a childhood memory of Roger McGough and The Scaffold singing Lily the Pink suggested I might find an easy way in to the poetry within its pages and whilst the language and cultural references were accessible too much of all three poets'

    The Mersey Sound PDF ò The MerseyMOBI :´ mersey ebok, sound book, The Mersey download, The Mersey Sound PDFEvery generation has poetry that it considers its own As a teenager growing up in Cardiff this was the volume that felt like it was mine poppy edgy at times accessible and anti establishment like the music of The Beatles Lennon Dylan Bowie or the soon to follow punk explosion though gentler and less abrasive than the latter I revelled in the sensational surrealism of Adrian Henri the wit of Roger McGough wasn't uite sure what to make of the less showy Brian Patten Of course we had other poets Eliot Dylan Thomas and so on but they belonged to everyone These belonged to usForty years on McGough is the avuncular voice of poetry on Radio 4 Henri is no longer with us and Patten still writes for both adults and children Revisiting these familiar works I find my teenage preferences have reversed Henri now looks showy sensationalist capable of great lines and striking images 'I Want To Paint' but also of naive political posturing His obsession with teenage schoolgirls now that I'm no long

    The Mersey Sound PDF ò The MerseyMOBI :´ mersey ebok, sound book, The Mersey download, The Mersey Sound PDFFor those of us who were born too late this anthology conveys the mood of Liverpool in the 60s a happening period for popular music visual arts literature and performanceRefreshing iconoclastic the Merseybeats performed poetry in pubs Their poems dealt with everyday experiences in the 60s they spoke the language of the times I guess we owe a great debt to the Mersey poets for breaking a host of cultural taboos on what could and could not be put into poetryThe subjects dealt with veer all over the place from tales of young love concerns of a nuclear apocalypse to Biffo the Bear and Batman and Robin Humour is mixed with melancholy and dystopia uite a few of the poems make use of contemporary song formsI look forward to reading poetry from both before and after the 60s and probably only then will I be able to fully appreciate the influence of the Mersey poets a
