Sheffield was pretty big in the early 80s , loads of synthpop/ industrial/post punk bands like Cabaret Voltaire , Human League , Clock DVA , Heaven 17 , Artery , Comsat Angels.

Oh and Def Leppard & ABC

And it is the home of Warp Records too.

Still...I can't see how Sheffield put Manchester in third place.

Really? Liverpool? Why beacuse of The Beatles? That's one band, other citys are more deserving. I think the title should have gone to Manchester I mean all the great bands The Smiths/Morrissey, Stone Roses, Joy Division/New Order, Oasis, The Verve, The Fall, Happy Mondays.....the list goes on man. My second choice would of been London The Who, The Clash, Sex Pistols.....ect. Liverpool? Wtf?

I pretty much agree with everything you said. The only good Liverpool band was Echo.

And you forgot one of the absolute best Manchester bands: Buzz****s! Thank the Sex Pistols for that famous Lesser Free Trade Hall show.

Canterbury 4 lyfe. The amount of talented prog bands that came out of that city is amazing. Gong, Caravan, Soft Machine, Hatfield & The North, several others.

And since you're all raving about Mancester. Lets not forget that Van Der Graaf Generator came from there.

Hmm somethings wrong. I have albums by 3 of those Canterbury bands but only 2 are showing up.

Edit: Gong are listed as being from Paris
