SXSW is the media clusterfuck of the year. Fine.
But what really irks me is that nearly all the Press coverage in the UK is of the "We're here to see Dirty Pretty Things/The Rakes/All of the other UK bands" variety.
I'm not going to get into whether or not these bands are any good, but I want to hear about acts that we've never come across before. I can hear about UK acts any day of the year.
There are around 800 acts playing out there. Let's hear about some of them.
