The Liverpool Scene was a poetry band, formed around 1967,
which included Adrian Henri, Andy Roberts, Mike Evans,
Mike Hart (ex Liverpool Roadrunners), Percy Jones and Brian Dodson.
Four LPs were issued with Henri's poetry heavily featured.
The first one was produced by Liverpool DJ John Peel,
who was then working on the pirate radio station Radio London.
Despite his support, the album achieved little success, as did the other three.
Public performances by the band included a (financially unsuccessful)
1969 tour when they opened for Led Zeppelin. Henri was described
in performance as "bouncing thunderously and at risk to audience
and fellow performers, the stage vibrating out of rhythm beneath him."
The Liverpool Scene disbanded in April 1970.
