Well come the seminal home of britpop, and the values that have made it in to the institution that it is. The transparent movement and tolerance of musical progresion which has spawned such undinaibly world class bands as varied as the Sex Pistols, Radiohead, Blur, Oasis, Joey Division, Rezzerection, Led Zepplin e.t.c ( you get the picture.) over the years. The values which have turned Britain into a safe haven for musical revoloutionaries, its no mere coincidence that Nirvana tourted before they made it big in America, and the White stripes made their last album here.

[JAAN]: What about the Kaise cheifs, thir branded as the next Blur

[octopus009]: I say they are quite a fun group but not nearly as good or as stylish as Blur once were. I say Bloc Party is the next big thing in Britpop...except for COldplay...grrr..

[JAAN]: damnn straight blur were amazin. Damon Albarn had a go at Pete Docherty. PD is overated thouhg. A band the magic numbers are actualy quite good.

[octopus009]: What about Pulp? Jarvis Cocker is a terrific front man and a brilliant songwriter I think.

[JAAN]: I was about to mention the pulp. I was gonna buy his n hers, but bought a eric clapton tab book instead. I dont like the album different class at all, but some of thier lesser poppy songs are brilliant

[octopus009]: I disliked His n Hers..but I do believe Different Class to be a classic album.

[JAAN]: Have u heard of the tears

[sequeena_rae]: Stereophonics!! They rock end of. ^_^

[JAAN]: They are prety cool, but the super furrys and the manicas are wales best exports

[octopus009]: The Tears...the old Suede front man/guitarist took that one up, yes?

[JAAN]: i find there album rally cringe inducing, if the lyrics arent write in a song i'll reject it like i do to he killerss or the pixies. Im not fussy i realy like weeezers new song

[JAAN]: does anyone find the introduction of coffe and tv reallly hard to do on the guitar, there are some weird subtle probally improvised ryythms used

[octopus009]: Yes it's really hard! I Can't figure it out..I think No Distance Left to Run is kind of hard.

[JAAN]: yep very distinctive idiosyncric rythm. Who would u say are the modern day equivelants to blur, probally weezer. are pavement any good, for me american music is bad and berefet of originality

[octopus009]: Pavement?! BAD?! Pavement is single handedly one of the most original and talented groups in american history! Buy anyone of their albums and you will see.

[JAAN]: im sure pavement are good cause i've heard a lot of good things about them! Are devo any good then

[octopus009]: They are a very witty and very catchy New Wave group..I don't have an album of theirs but I've heard a variety of work from them and it had all been good. Do you like The Bravery? I find them to be a sort of Smiths rip a good way

[JAAN]: really i quite ate the bravrey and the killers i find them lame retrogressive and chessy, especialy the bravery, killres are better musically but there lyrics are kringe inducing

[octopus009]: I would have to disagree there..because their doing exactly what acts like Blur, Oasis, Pulp, and others did in the 90's...which was looking back to their influences

[JAAN]: No but this emulates them, blur were a true melding pot of specific influences and genuine talent and cruicialy innovation

[octopus009]: Indeed, but then again there are bands like Metro, the Bravery, Bloc Party, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, and more...who make great records and still have that retro alternative sound
