Nice to see you saying you live in Britain, in the past you've said you live in ENGLAND. And shunned the Britain thing, although I'm the same. I only live Britain when talking about bands. Primal Scream are just as much my band as someone from Scotland.

Whatever works for ya, but when listening those bands were the first things that sprung to mind, even though there are differences as well. Let me know what you think.

I still prefer England as my location but for the sake of comparison I will use GB so when comparing land mass I have used the most possible lol

She's a nutter for sure.

Where does Madonna and her phony British accent fit into the equation?

or

Jimi Hendrix an American who found fame in England?

Aww no

That album is great, it took me about 5 listens to get into it. But I really like it. Can't wait to hear their third album.

But the 70's REALLY.
We had loads of british Prog bands.
Loads of british Folk artists.
About 70% of all good punk.
The big hard rock bands like The Who and Led Zeppelin.
We had both Bolan and Bowie.

Can you really argue?
Lets set the record straight. America has been setting up for slaughter anyone and anything getting in their way. Lets roll over some of what the US was putting out in the 1970's:

Marvin Gaye
James Brown
Talking Heads
Frank Zappa
Merle Haggard
Sly & the Family Stone
Bruce Springsteen
Tom Waits
P. Funk
Lynard Skynard
Allman Brothers
Greatful Dead
Chicago
Aerosmith
Van Halen
The Ramones
Kiss
Alice Cooper

Linton Kwesi Johnson
Massive Attack
Slowdive
Mansun
These New Puritans
Manic Street Preachers
British Sea Power
Aphex Twin
The Editors
Alien Sex Fiend
Fields Of The Nephilim
The Cult


There's just a few for ya.

We can rattle off lists all day long but I still stand by the notion that a country that virtually fits inside Texas and can produce so much innovative and varied music deserves more than a modicum of respect.

It's not about who's better but respect where it's due. Virtually every British poster on this forum likes music from wherever it comes from and respects it but you seem to have this hang up that because some roots of music are from America then that's all that matters. I get the feeling that you don't like British music a whole lot which is your choice but it blinds you to what's out there. Maybe you should open up and give music that is less familiar a chance? It's rewarding.
[withholding to see if I am being called out directly.]

Edit: Holy **** sticks this is about me.

1. how dare you?

2. Who the when? I said something about America owning roots music? Where?

3. Theres nothing rewarding about British music, its measured by the pound =P

This thread got me thinking about bands of Britain from the 00s. Who are people's favourite British bands from the 00s? (or have made most of their music/impact in the 00s) Anyone care to do a list?
