Whos your fave music act from YOUR country

Just curious to see who you all rate as the best act hailing from your nation of birth. I think its a given that any Irish peeps are gonna say u2 so maybe not much point in posting.
Being from Scotland...ad have to say Simple Minds. An honorable mention to Big Country too tho

My all time favourite is the Urban Dance Squad. They were really something new in the early Nineties. Rage Against The Machine and, sadly, Limp Bizkit were hugely influenced by them.
And currently I'm still very impressed by Voicst. Their second album, A Tale Of Two Devils, that was released earlier this year is amazing.

For albums, The Flaming Lips and Spoon, while Wilco is the best live act we have IMO.

probably Thé Lau / The Scene

Bettie Serveert, Trockener Kecks and The Nits should be up there too

for live entertainment you can't beat The Amazing Stroopwafels though

All are also excellent suggestions. The Tröckener Kecks are my favourite artists singing in Dutch (though after last night I'm in a Doe Maar mood again).

Difficult

Probably a tie between The Gathering and Nynke Laverman for the moment, though Coparck and Bettie Serveert are also serious contenders.

I love Big country and Simple minds, but from my country I'd have to say Oingo Boingo and Janes addiction.

Ever? Wow, that's hard. I love a ton of Canadian bands/artists.

Off the top of my head, and judging by who I listen to most these days, I'd have to say Sloan, Matthew Good, Barenaked Ladies, The Pursuit of Happiness, Tokyo Police Club, and about 200 more.

Our music scene is amazing.

Eta - I forgot Arcade Fire. And Feist

How could you?

Indeed, our music scene is amazing. Arcade Fire is my absolute favourite.

I've also taken a strong liking to Stars and Feist.

And then there's Our Lady Peace. I grew up listening to them, and still listen to them when the mood strikes. I saw them live in 2006 and the show absolutely blew me away. I had a fantastic time.
