I find Starsailor's album to be stunning. That they could be in the same vein as Coldplay or Travis has no influence on me at all.

My playlist goes back a decade or two before yours,and it is heavily British...just talented I guess. I like their humour too.

A place for my story? Ben Elton is in Australia at the moment. He is doing a publicity tour to announce they are bringing his show(I can't now think of it's correct title) to Australia. It features SOME of the songs by QUEEN!!!
My goodness watching some clips from it, made me think...I HAVE TO SEE IT!!
Ben Elton was being interviewed and he said Freddie Mercury's family came to see the production. He spoke to Freddie's mother after the show and she said Freddie would really approve of the theme Ben had chosen and that "if music be the stuff of life.......Rock On!!"
Yo Mrs Mercury. Ben said he was very touched and amused by her approval.That is why the other day I suggested "Rock On" as a title for the new U2 album. I was still smiling about Freddie's mum.

So yes, those misty isles sure produce talent
playwrights, musicians, poets, soccer players.....


PS: Freddie started on Zanzibar, a hot island, but the misty islands influenced him the most.

also its not great to lump everyone together as "British", Travis and Idlewild are Scottish, the Manics are Welsh, the rest are English (afaik)

I KNOW U2 is irish. I would have to, being here

I just sort of lump all the Commonwealth artists together. England, Scotland, Ireland. Sorry. We don't hear a lot about those places here, so they're more or less in one category: Great Britain.

Starsailor is not second gen Coldplay. Starsailor is fabulous.

Beatles.

I will have to look up Embrace.

Not to be picky, but Ireland isn't part of Great Britain. At least not the part our boys are from.

But I do agree that there seems to be an abnormaly large amount of quality music coming out of that part of the world.

Okay, now I feel stupid, ignorant, uninformed...

You'll be lumping aussie and canuck artists in under the umbrella of the commonwealth next...

It's ok...it's just that I got ripped apart for making the Ireland/Britain mistake once.

But I think you're point is still well-taken.

Not that I'd like to nitpick but Ireland isnt in the commonwealth

So even you choose to gang up on me eh?

No. Oz and Canada are too far away geographically to be lumped together. I can't even lump Canada and the US (our Canadian radio stations ensure this).

I heard a Bush song on the radio last night

we just make a habit of claiming New Zealanders as our own... there is a long list of Kiwi/Aussie bands

Wow, there was loads of great shit from 90-95!
I haven't thought about some of those bands in a LONG time (chapterhouse, Kingmaker)! Seeing you are in the Bronx....did you see some of these bands in NYC in their hey day (early 90's)?
