Default British Rock bands...

What is it with hardily any decent British rock bands coming through at the moment. Everyone and their dog has a band but hardily any are exciting at all.

my favourite 2 at the moment are these; myspace.com/thezicochain
and
myspace.com/untitledmusicalproject

both incredibly exiting live, and just amazing tracks. can't believe both of them mnake so much noise for a 3 piece.

just hate the way that British media seems unable to like British bands, and always have to back american bands.

Are there any other British bands you like?
And could you expand on reasons for liking like them?

Other bands, really into a band called Ghost Of Thousand from Brighton. It's quite full on and agressive and really gives you a kick in the arse.

Loving the new Biffy stuff cos it's got great rif***e.

Another new band called Outcry Collective again sound absoutly great.

Bascially i don't think British music has been up to it for the past few years but there seems to be a re-emergence of great new bands just making the music sound really refreshing.

eurgh.. you've named all my most hated british bands. Sanzen?! can you get more BLAND than ETID rip-offs? Ghost of a Thousand are average at best.

You need to listen to:
Sika Redem
Flatlands
The Mirimar Disaster
Chariots
Sons of Alpha Centauri
Kaddish

Visit Birmingham. It will probably convince you that Britain should never be allowed metal bands ever again. There's about 1000 metal bands in this city and in my opinion they're all rubbish. There's a particularly large number of 'classic' rock and 'classic' metal bands, who use that word as if it were a good thing. Nobody should ever play retro and this counts a hundred fold for people who are going to play retro but somehow make the music a whole lot crapper...Led Zepellin may have been from the West Midlands, but they did not use just two chords through an entire song, they didn't play out of time and with no dynamic variation and THEY WEREN'T FAT... so you're not Led Zepellin, guys.

P.S. You seem to have completely changed your opinion between posts, baker. First there are lots of British bands and no exciting ones, then there's lots of exciting ones which nobody has heard of. Which is it?????
