Very true, not always the case but true nonetheless..

Maximo Park are a quality band with 2 cracking albums to their name,

I relly like the Kaisers aswell, such catchy singalong tunes, which just what I want to hear... just like Blur in the "old" days... :(

Good list thl, we cross on many bands!

Poison and REO Speedwagon are great, I've seen REO twice in the last year, recently at the O2 Arena. They tore the place up.

Skid Row are another rock outfit I enjoyed...

And also a bit of Nuclear Assault... :)

:P :lol:

I'd love to contribute to a musical discussion on the forum but I don't have a lot to offer on the guitar band front. I do have albums by Blur, Oasis, Supergrass and others, so I suppose I can just about be regarded as having a slightly more modern taste in music than someone like Ian Hislop. But only just!

Good ol' Mussorgsky - too sloshed to finish most of his pieces. Man after my own heart. Night on a Bare Mountain is great though.

Don't listen to Elgar very often but I remember having to sing his 'From the Bavarian Highlands' in the university choir. The only enjoyment to be had was by singing rude words instead of the real ones.

Orbital



Long Range (Phil Hartnoll - Orbital) and Paul Hartnolls Solo stuff continues their genius.



Nothing else in my opinion comes even close
