    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.

    Do The Rakes count for right now? Art Brut? And since we're doing old ones too, Charlatans (UK).

    They all count, and the Rakes have a new album coming out very soon. Another British band I like is the Bees, formerly A Band of Bees.

    yes Rakes our good. Love Art Brut way underrated and The Charlatans are one of my favorite bands as well. Every record is brilliant especially the one's that you don't get at first then after 5 listens you go fuck this is a fucking great record!

    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 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.

    I never said anything bad about the Waterboys. Another cool British band that people seemed to have forgotten is Gay Dad.

    The couple of songs by MANSUN that I have heard are really good. The Cocteau Twins are a great British band.

    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.
