Canterbury Scene, a progressive rock music sub-genre A Progressive Rock Sub-genre From, the ultimate progressive rock music website Canterbury Scene definition With many other types of English progressive music developing mostly in London, it may at first seem strange that the old pilgrimage centre and relatively quiet cathedral city of Canterbury, became the centre of this very English form of progressive music and jazz fusion. Originally the Wilde Flowers, a teenage band of members living in and around Canterbury, playing a mix of pop, R'n'B and band members with a developing love of jazz, was formed in the 60's and became the seedling from which the Canterbury Scene grew. Australian beatnik Daevid Allen during a long stop-over at Robert Wyatt's parent's home, a refuge for many left field artists, was to catalyse the evolution of the Wilde Flowers into the fledging Soft Machine and the development of some avant music during the English psychedelic and underground period.

1960's Music played in the 60's Bands groups singers memories from The People History Site The 1960's were a time of upheaval in society, fashion, attitudes and especially music. Before 1963, the music of the sixties still reflected the sound, style and beliefs of the previous decade and many of the hit records were by artists who had found mainstream success in the 1950s, like Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Dion, and The Everly Brothers. In 1963 and the years to follow, a number of social influences changed what popular music was and gave birth to the diversity that we experience with music today. The assassination of President Kennedy, the escalation of the war in Vietnam and the forward-progress of the Civil Rights Movement all greatly impacted the mood of American culture and the music began to reflect that change.

Why a History of Punk Rock Matters Punk rock, perhaps more than any genre in the history of popular music, is almost impenetrably tangled in ideologies. What began as an artistic movement, as an expression of counter-cultural angst, crossed continents into film studios, literature, poetry, theatres, art galleries and catwalks. By the mid-1990s, punk was a global commodity. Green Day, Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance are now household names. Punk, the bratty, snot-nosed upstart breed of rock and roll, built on anti-musicianship, built on the rejection of stadium rock, built on a sneering denial of technical skill, built - crucially - on the breakdown of the performer-audience relationship, on the attack against the musical mainstream - punk had now arrived squarely in that mainstream. Yet the history of punk remains unwritten.

A Brief History of Punk The Foundations of Punk Rock The beginnings of punk rock are often furiously debated. This is partially because everyone has different definition of punk rock, and partially because its foundation stones are found in several places. "Punk Rock" was originally used to describe the garage musicians of the '60's. Great Resources for Teaching Using Comics March , 2014 A few days ago I shared with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list featuring some of the best web tools that you can use with your students to create comics. As a teacher you can leverage the power of comics in several ways: you can use them for teaching writing, reading and speaking. Comics are also a good way for students to build and create their stories and share them with others.

The Scooterist: Youth Culture - Mods & Rockers 1960s - 1970s Youth Culture - Mods - Late 1950s to Mid 1960s Mod (from modernist) is a subculture that originated in London, England in the late 1950s and peaked in the early-to-mid 1960s. Significant elements of the mod subculture include: fashion (often tailor-made suits); pop music, including African American soul, Jamaican ska, and British beat music and R&B; and Italian motor scooters. The original mod scene was also associated with amphetamine-fuelled all-night dancing at clubs. From the mid-to-late 1960s onwards, the mass media often used the term mod in a wider sense to describe anything that was believed to be popular, fashionable or modern. 40+ Resources for Teaching Using Animation and Comics January 27, 2014 Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students. Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense. 1.
