Brum Beat was a monthly magazine about the music of Birmingham, England, and the neighbouring towns. The magazine was started in 1970 as Midlands Beat by promoter and band-manager Jim Simpson, who sold it to its latter editor, Steve Morris, who in turn relaunched it in newspaper format as The Beat, before converting it into a website. 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.
