I'll tell you. Check out Elbow. Seriously. There's a great song called "About Time" at http://www.powderblue.fsnet.co.uk/frameset.htm .

(Just be thankful I'm not going all PLEBA and posting pictures of Guy Garvey )

wow, I had never heard doves before, so I downloaded their 2 albums and they sound great, wtf is wrong with the United States???? we are force-fed all these rap/metal sound-alikes and great bands like this never come to light... I only found out about Elbow a month or two ago (let's see, I discovered Starsailor, Elbow, Electric Soft Parade, Clinic, Doves, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Abandoned Pools, Badly Drawn Boy, Remy Zero, Zygotic Mynici, The Strokes and The Hives all this year)

*sighs out of frustration over state of music in the USA

There's some very excellent bands on that list.

Good choices, though. I think it's kind of fun sometimes to love bands that most Americans don't know. I'd much rather be living in the UK now, but there's something nice about being able to see my favourite bands in a small venue (and for fairly cheap)and being able to meet/hang out with them after the show. The only real problem is finding the cds I want without having to pay a ton of money for shipping overseas. Even once they're released in the US, they're hard to find sometimes.

I've seen them mostly at used/specialty stores. I found Doves' first album a couple of weeks ago for $1! I already had it, but I had to buy to give to someone because I couldn't resist a deal like that. But you're right, it's hard to find most of them. I can't find ESP anywhere.

Have you heard South? You'd probably like them, going by some of the other bands you mentioned. I love the bass lines in their songs.
