Now we're talking about "under the radar" bands? That term, by definition, means they are bands that not too many people have heard of. My point is that tons of British bands are very well known over here and have been for literally decades.

Same with the Black Metal scene in Norway once the influences of Bathory started spreading. Most of the bands there came from the same areas. Although let's not forget that Norway is around four and a half million people, so roughly the size of a metropolitan city in the US in regards to population.

If there was say a massive blues or jazz influenced scene in a large city or area in the US or the UK it could mean massive things for music. The style gets popular, is varied and spreads and eventually creates new and more experimental things, with luck anyways.

Also at the moment I like me a few American bands that are still active but about the same amount of British bands. However that number combined is dwarfed by artists from Scandinavia alone.
I can't read your argument with something like your first line being in there. I won't be able argue without it being "not good" or "not a scene."

Best of luck out there.

boo boo,

Don't forget Canada also had Saga - the band that cause a riot in Puerto Rico, and The Musical Box the mind blowing Genesis tribute band.

Even though America didn't have Progressive Rock, I would say our counterpart to Prog which did a lot of jamming would be Southern Rock - The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Outlaws, and then there are bands mixed genres like The Grateful Dead, & Chicago. Please don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying Southern Rock is Prog, it's just the fact they both love the long jam. It's just that US band had other musical territories they wanted to explore. Probably the only time USA and the Uk were on the same page was during the British Invasion. And after The Beatles broke up, the UK had bands the US couldn't touch and the US had bands the UK couldn't touch and maybe it was a good thing they stop touching each.

So what everyone is saying is that a country that is roughly 10x smaller than us and respectively has 10x less the population than America, who took OUR music, put their own spin on it, one might even say improved it only marginally competes with the US in music quality and proliferation?
I think when you put things in perspective The UK mops the floor w/ the US! The genre's of music that the UK doesn't excell at are the genre's that they don't really have the cultural foundation for: hip-hop, jazz, and country. Why in the hell would a Brit wanna' produce a country album? They don't wan't the sheep over there to be any more frightened than they already are!
