Last artists played:

Idlewild
Starsailor
Coldplay
U2
Travis
Oasis
Doves
The Charlatans
Manic Street Preachers

All British artists. What the heck is going on?

I just discovered recently that all the rap/hiphop I listen to (besides Outkast and Eminem) is British.

Interference has a huge influence on what I listen to, too. Not necessarily a bad thing, I suppose, because everyone has good taste.

Have you listened to Jurassic 5?

They're my favorite rap group.

I like the "old" brit-pop that got me through college in the early 90's:

The Wonder Stuff
Stone Roses
Ride
Neds Atomic Dustbin
Chapterhouse
Lush
Boo Radleys
Early Blur
Jesus Jones
Pop Will Eat Itself
Kingmaker
James
My Bloody Valentine
EMF
The Farm
Black Grape
Echobelly
Early Verve
Paul Weller

Wow, there was loads of great shit from 90-95!

I've heard those 2 singles they had last year, can't remember what they were called though.. liked them both. Any song suggestions?

Embrace are another top British goup you should check out, Their first album "the good will out" is fantastic. Coldplay cannot put a foot wrong at the moment.. Oasis are past it, Their last 2 albums have been mediocre at best

MrBrau1 I liked a lot of those bands too. My favorite probably being james and The Stone Roses (the best debut album ever made)

This maybe a strange place to point this out but erm....

I always thought U2 were an Irish band

Their first album was fantastic.

Song recommendations:

The Influence
Great Expectations
Quality Control
What's Golden

U2 are Irish incidentally, not British

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

Also there is some good American music, the MTV effect just means you have to search all the harder to find it
