Big-beat (Eastern Bloc)
Big-beat (also caled 'big beat' or 'bigbit') is a term used in Eastern Bloc countries in 1960s to cover rock and roll and relative genres, as the original name was unaccepted by communist authorities. Genres of American origin, such as jazz, twist and especially rock and roll were banned or at least hardly tolerated in Eastern Bloc countries in the middle of 20th century. Such music was considered as an element of American imperialism[1]. However there were several jazz bands in those area. In 1950s these bands included some rock and roll elements in their performance. The first Polish band that officially played rock and roll was Rhythm and Blues formed in 1959 and forced by authorities to disband in 1960. Manager of Rhythm and Blues, Franciszek Walicki, to avoid the term rock and roll, used a form "Big-beat" to name the band's genre

Brum Beat
Brum Beat was a monthly magazine about the music of Birmingham, England,[1] and the neighbouring towns. The magazine was started in 1970[1] as Midlands Beat by promoter and band-manager Jim Simpson, who sold it to its latter editor, Steve Morris,[2] who in turn relaunched it in newspaper format as The Beat, before converting it into a website.[3] It took its original name from the term coined in the late 1950s to collectively describe the City's music scene, in the manner of the Mersey sound. It has been suggested that The Moody Blues, formed in May 1964, were the first of the "Brum Beat" bands to become internationally famous.[4] References[edit]^ a b "1980: A great day in Birmingham - But where are they now?".
