Yeah I forgot PJ was a puddle jumper. Anyway, this argument is usually stupid but since the whole first pages was Brits slagging statesmen and one atlantian defector, I figured I'd throw out what we're good for.

America turns out alot of bands in a short period, its sort of like birth, you release a million bands, one has to get pregnant off success.

and to you arrogant folk who said "well we have these guys, so we win" let me just say

Radiohead
The Smiths

America Wins.

Well, I'm from a different era, so my comment are kept to what I know about. It was mentioned earlier that Yanks wrote about the issues more than the Brits. Well, going back to the time of the British Invasion (yes, that deserves to be capitalized), Yanks were in the midst of Vietnam, so, in all fairness to the Brits, the Yanks had a lot more social issues to write about.

So, anyway, doing a short list of what I listened to in my teens:



Brits:

Queen
Zep
The Who

Yanks:

Aerosmith
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Ted Nugent


Hmmm.....sounds to me like I win.

As I have said before, to me British music is much more relevant to me personally while American music is probably much more relevant to people from America. I'm not saying I prefer British music just because it's British, but in my record collection there's twice as many British artists as there are American artists.

I think that the British are best at making music too, partly because I'm English.

But why aren't all the Americans supporting their own music??
Even they probably already know that it's crap..........

(I'm only kidding!!)

So here's a few artists (in no particular order of quality or success), that should support the theory that the Brits make fantastic music.

1. Prodigy
2. Pink Floyd
3. The Cars
4. Bruce Hornsby & The Range
5. Chris Rea
6. Franz Ferdinand

That'll be all for now.....

Franz Ferdinand? FRANZ FERDINAND? You have added Franz Ferdinand to that list yet dismissed all of the other, much, MUCH better musicians out there? Are you clinically insane?
