They're quaint.
I think they are a passing fad and will slowly fade into obscurity.
There has been the odd decent British band, but nothing that leaps out and really grabs me.

Too provincial for my tastes.

How can UK bands be a 'passing fad' when they have been around since the beginning!

Just curious.

I was being deeply sarcastic.

But he's pretty popular over in britain though. Or at least amongst the British people I know.
Could've sworn he was from the UK region though . . .

Brian isn't really from anywhere. He moved a lot. He did go to school in London but the band formed when he went to school in Luxemburg.



Everyone knows I love UK music. It's my favorite.

UK has its fair share of good and bad from every genre, just like anywhere else.

i know alot about the British scene, living in the UK.. though very few of my favourite bands are british. Theres a slight lack of experimentalism but then theres also a lack of fans of experimental music.
