The New York Times introduces us to the Liver Birds, the all-girl Liverpudlian rock band who could’ve been as big as The Beatles.
In the latest video in their Almost Famous series, NYT meets the remaining members of a band that emerged in Liverpool at the exact same time as The Beatles. They were four young women who came together by chance but all shared one dream. To be the first all-girl rock band in Britain.
The group quickly gained attention from local venues and the press. Soon, the girls were playing iconic venues around Britain and Europe. Like The Beatles, they headlined the famed Star club and were selling out shows every night. It looked like they were poised to take on the world. But, due to a car accident involving one of the girls’ partners and an unexpected pregnancy, the group had to disband. The Liver Birds never got the chance to be as big as other rock groups of the 60s. Their story remains mostly untold, but this doc shines a light on the interesting tale of the UK’s first all girl rock band.
