Communities that produced independent record labels , visual art, multimedia performances and fanzines developed around these musical scenes

Indie Rock
INDIE ROCK is a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s. Originally used to describe independent record labels , the term became associated with the music they produced and was initially used interchangeably with alternative rock. As grunge and punk revival bands in the US, and then Britpop bands in the UK, broke into the mainstream in the 1990s, it came to be used to identify those acts that retained an outsider and underground perspective. In the 2000s, as a result of changes in the music industry and the growing importance of the Internet, some indie rock acts began to enjoy commercial success, leading to questions about its meaningfulness as a term. Sometimes used interchangeably with "guitar pop rock ", in the mid-1980s, the term "indie " (or "indie pop ") began to be used to describe the music produced on punk and post-punk labels

Brighton began to attract more visitors following improved road transport to London and becoming a boarding point for boats travelling to France. The town also developed in popularity as a health resort for sea bathing as a purported cure for illnesses
