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]: Ive got a few from the 80's and i dont dig them that much, and the soundtrack to the movie are bad, whtas better post or pre syd baret, with exclusion of the wall and darkside of the moon

[octopus009]: Oh their eighties albums are rubbish compared to their work in the sixties and seventies. I own all of syds solo stuff in vynal and CD and it is fabulous.

[octopus009]: I wish rodger waters would've stayed with em but I don't blame him for leaving

[JAAN]: have you heard of the super fury animals

[octopus009]: Of course

[JAAN]: any albums in parttcular to get there very interesting i got ther greatest hits, slow life is cool

[Nostradamia]: blur joy division suede oasis etc. = me luvs.

[octopus009]: Sleeper..there's a great band that never got its due..I love Sleeper.

[JAAN]: ive never heard of them, i listened to sgt peppers lonley hearts club ans sucked a bit, is that the best beatle

[octopus009]: What?! That album is one of the greatest ever made, man! Actually Sleeper toured with Blur on the Parklife tour.

[JAAN]: when i et older does not constitute my idea of goosd music, it terrribly repetitive, i ve heard some sogs by them lke hear comes the sun, mother nature son and blackwoood, and lennons imagine is one of the greatest songs ever, but other than that thre is sparse little to recomend about then on sgt pepper form.

[JAAN]: Tewnder has got to be the best asong ever ive just decided, you just cant beat it

[octopus009]: Tender is indeed one of the best. One of the most actually moving ballads I've heard..I mean there are all these acts today (Including Oasis even) that write these terribly shallow and dull balads that are painful to the extreme but although tender is repetetive it is a wonderful kind of repetetive. I think this is because it isn't all. It has a classical bass, the most beautiful guitar line from both the acoustic and electric guitars, the drums are simple and keep the song from being overpowered because of it. It's sincere which is rare for a balad because not many of them are about REAL breakups or heartaches.

[JAAN]: Coffe and T.V is also very beutiful, simularily understated. and i reallly like theres no distace left to run.... its genuinely moving music. but i dont like the album much, only listened to it once thugh

[octopus009]: No distance left to run is by far my favorite ballad and the best song of the album apart from...well all of it..that album is my fav! What do you think about the new Gorillaz album by the way? I bought it and I was overwhelmed, it was a very grown up album yet it still was fun in it's twisted and dark way. The first Gorillaz album was just as good as them both.

[JAAN]: i bought the sinle feel good inc. and them i listened to thier earlier stuff and realised just how good they were, indeed are. Its got good reviews but only one single has been rleased that puts me off trumendously. Actually if u could could u do me a favour, ive come into 75 pounds in my holidays, even after i bought appetite for destruction and are u experinced so i could study them as a gitatrist, which led me to the conclusion that genuinley do love brit pop since i really cant even bear to listren hendrix or guns and roses, how should i spemnd money to futher myself as a guitarist.

[octopus009]: I suggest you to stick with what you know the best but to keep experimenting other sounds. I love Hendrix personally but GnR is terrible. I say you buy yourself a Boss Me 50 mutiple guitar effects peddle. It's got everything on it and it works great! It's got several distortion modes, several modulation modes, and great delay modes's even got a wah peddle with mutiple modes. It's also got a built in tuner and a memory system..but I don't know how the memory works..either that or buy some new music

[octopus009]: I just bought the new Oasis album and I can say it is quite good..though they are still never making it to number one in the states again..sure they sold out madeson square but it's not happening I don't believe. The Futureheads are the next XTC for sure I love them to death, and I also came into the possession of the latest album from The Streets which is quite interesting.

[JAAN]: YES! the futureheads are quitew amazing, and the new oasis album i also agree is quite alright, the importance of being eanset is a good song, still i find them hardto get into

[octopus009]: But the futureheads are indeed wonderful..

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