All I did was state they were an omission on your list , which they were. You can take that however you wish. If you want to get overly defensive about it then by all means do.
I said I thought you were being anal, but now I realize your not. Look who's talking about defensive. Jeez, I said sorry and openly admitted it was my mistake. What more can one ask for?

Liverpool has produced some of the most mediocre bands in the British rock tradition. There is absolutely no justification whatsoever for having Liverpool as the most musical city in England. It's just pure bullsh1t. Their only real standing legacy aside from The Beatles is the Merseybeat movement. And that was hardly vital or artistically important music or anything.

The REAL reason why Liverpool ended up winning this poll was because it was skewed in some way or other in order to bolster Liverpool's image as the culture capital of Europe in 2008.

Which incidentally is also bullsh1t. Liverpool isn't even deserving of being the culture capital of Merseyside let alone the whole European Union.

From RYM, the bands I own music by from Manchester:

The Fall
Buzz****s
The Stone Roses
Doves
The Chemical Brothers
Joy Division
New Order
Ian Brown
Lamb
The Future Sound of London
Oasis
The Smiths
Happy Mondays
Morrissey
Space Monkeys
Amplifier
Muslimgauze

compared to the pool:

Echo and the Bunnymen
The Zutons
The Wombats
The Beatles
Clinic

and The Wombats and Clinic are crap

Birmingham fares better than that:

Duran Duran
Judas Priest
Felt
Godflesh
Napalm Death
G.B.H.
Sacrilege
Rockers Hi-Fi
Editors
Magnum
Bill Ward
Black Sabbath
Electric Light Orchestra
Steel Pulse

And there is a bit of crap in there too!
