They have a reputation for passive aggressiveness too. Introverts versus outright assholes like Manchester I guess.

i lived in chesterfield for a few years in the 90s and the music was great. it was coming at you from all directions. chesterfield is about 50km from Manchester and the Thompson twins are from near there. Sheffield down the road has a big music history and artists like Chris Rea, pulp, artic monkeys, human league and Joe cocker are from there. everyone's heard of oasis who were up against blur but at that time but there were a lot of bands going around like Jesus Jones, supergrass, kular shaka, Ocean Colour scene, Cast, Boo Radleys, happy Mondays, the bluetones and the las who were just as good IMO. the music reminded me of a rehash of the mercy beat and British bands of the 60s. on the other side of the coin there was the boy bands like take that, boys zone, east 17 and westlife fighting it out with Robson and Jerome and the evergreen cliff Richards all dominating the airways. i think that was the time when the dance music was coming out with m people, massive attack and Jamiroquai. my only regret is not getting to Glastonbury before i came back to Australia.

Midlands. One of them comes from Willenhall which is not far at all from Brum. The other founding members were from the Midlands.

The Charlatans were formed & based in Northwich.
Tim Burgess use to date Mick Ronson's niece. She used to be a friend of mine.

The Smiths! They introduced the indie movement, showing more power to the artist. They truly stuck it to the man at the time. Shame they had to sell out to John Lewis......truth that we all mellow with age. x

Oasis .. didn't have a lot of material that I considered as being great music. But at the same time this song in particular resonates a kinda revoloutionary feel and vibe when it first debuted. Do you know what I Mean. I remember that song hit at a perfect time during that era.



Thats All .. Oh.. I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that Oasis would win here in the US.
