70s fashions of Liverpool - Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1970s Liverpool

Liverpool’s dynamic history during the 1970s is vividly revived in the new book Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1970s Liverpool by journalist and former Echo entertainments editor, Jade Wright.

Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1970s Liverpool meticulously explores the decade’s transformative events, from the demolition of the original Cavern to the rise of Eric’s, and captures the shift in musical tastes from Merseybeat to punk and new wave.

The guide transports readers back to iconic moments like David Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust’ performance at the Top Rank and the memorable ‘grab a granny’ nights at the Grafton.

This era of industrial unrest and bold fashion choices is brought to life through detailed recollections of legendary venues such as The Babalou, Golden Guinea, and the newly built St John’s hosting events at the Top Rank Suite, Romeo & Juliets, and Studio 54.

Jade Wright’s passion for Liverpool’s cultural heritage shines through in this meticulously researched volume. “This book isn’t just a collection of memories; it’s a portal to the past,” Wright said. “Whether you experienced the ’70s firsthand or simply have a fondness for the era’s rich culture, this book will transport you back to the days of punk, disco, cabaret, and the unforgettable summer of ‘76.”
