OMD are an amazing old school British band.
I really like OMD. They are not my favorite band, but I give them props. A newer British band that I really like is the Pigeon Detectives.
THE CHAMELEONS are one of my all time tops!
Another top British band is Blur, that goes without saying.
And I saw Ride in 1992, a wonderful memory!
Do The Rakes count for right now? Art Brut? And since we're doing old ones too, Charlatans (UK).
Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot piiiieeeeeeeee!
Art Brut were great at Coachella 2006. I missed them when they toured with the Hold Steady. I also love Belle & Sebastian, who are from Scottish, making them at least part of the United Kingdom.
the Scottish have a ton of great bands but my Scottish forever favorite band has to be THE WATERBOYS aka Mike Scott is genius!
The Waterboys are cool, but a band I like better with the word "boy" in their title is the Soft Boys. Another Scottish band I like is the Thrills. Someone should put a Thrills video on here, they are so brilliant.
THE WATERBOYS....! nothing can be better! LOL come on Ken I think that hospital your in needs to let you take a break.. they are abusing you...
I never said anything bad about the Waterboys. Another cool British band that people seemed to have forgotten is Gay Dad.
GAY DAD are fucking great.. you and C dub ya and myself only have brought them up here. While were at it do you like the band MANSUN? fucking great as well.
The couple of songs by MANSUN that I have heard are really good. The Cocteau Twins are a great British band.
someone said earlier Soft Cell, and i kept thinking yea, i really liked them ... i was thinking of Soft Machine, i need a brain transplant althought soft cell was ok ... cr****
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
Trashcan Sinatras were a good British band. So was Bauhaus. So was Catherine Wheel.
Another band I like from England is Wire. Their video "Eardrum Buzz" has a lot of celebrity cameos, including Steve Martin, Bjork and Andy Fletcher from Depeche Mode. SOmeone should put that video on here off of Youtube.
