Gareth I'm not tryin to spark Liverpool/Manchester friction if that's what you mean. Perhaps it should be moved to skybar cos its abit of a general topic - but I only posted it here becuase it's ar forum and it just interested me what people on er thought. For the record if theres one thing I like about Manchester its some of their music.Gareth said:I think Rudi knows exactly what he's trying to do with this thread.
I request it to be moved to the skybar!
That's the thing with me you see. When I'm not wallowing in all things Liverpool, I'm drifting through this spacey nirvana of the mind in which it's permanently 1984, the entire world is the colour of concrete, and I'm tramping my dockers across some brick-strewn Sheffield wasteground to a soundtrack of the Cabs' 'Nag Nag Nag' and Heaven 17's 'We Don't Need This Fascist Groove Thang'. Never fashionable, but always pushing the boundaries.Awayo said:Sheffield itself and its music cene has never seemed fashionable even when its bands have been. Strange.
Ian McNabb is still making great music and The Little Flames are going on tour with the artic monkeys soon,here's a sample of a song of theirs,if that link sounds dodgy knock off the video to hear the track.Link and if The Aeroplanes don't make it I'll be gutted I love all of these songs have a listen,there debut single is out this week incidentally.LinkToadboy said:Loads of great bands haven't made it through from Liverpool for ages. I see that as a strength in many ways we've had some great stuff that's missed the boat commercially as teh 7 year olds dive in to Pop Idol etc.
The Coral, Shack, Dead 60's, The Crescent, The Zutons and the effervecent Wiley are current examples and that's the tip of the iceberg.
Be interesting to know the score in other cities.
