Since the Beatles how many great bands have come out of Liverpool?
Er... Lily Allen?
it's my home city but Manchester is far more important. Most bands who say they are from London probably moved there from somewhere else anywhere (a recent example being Bloc Party). It's the same for New York. Very few of the bands who say they are from there were actually born there.
Manchester has had bands both big and pioneering (the likes of Oasis, Stone Roses and Joy Division alongside the likes of Magazine, the Buzzcocks and the Smiths).
we've got Cats In Paris.
The Mersey beat bands were brilliant, but who've they had after? Echo and the Bunnymen with That Song? The Las? The Coral?
All are alright bands I spose. Never got into them.
But I think Manchester is probably it.
I can't STAND 'MaDcHeSter' and all that fucking horrible psuedo nostalgia that goes with it, but their list of good bands is probably longer than anyone else's. They had no-one in the 60s mind.
Pulp. Arctics. Milburn?
instead of Joy Division? Fuck New Order. They're shite.
anyway , its obviously london. it's ridiculous to suggest anything else. the beatles ruined liverpools music scene, everything after it, with a few exceptions, has been piss versions of the beatles. like manchester and the smiths
very strong record.
and the dead 60s
The Stone Roses
Manchester are the winnorz.
the ting tings
most good things
london is winnorz
All change and Mother Nature Calls were top. The Aeroplanes were shithot for a couple of years too.
"The Who, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Clash"
Glasgow has had some decent bands right!!
My Bloody Valentine
Jesus and Mary Chain
Glasgow like most Cities has some pure shite though...
