Franz are decent.


Besides, Britain's got a much better musical pedigree than Canada.

I wouldn't say so much better as more distinguished, for the most part. The biggest classic rock groups to come from here are probably The Guess Who, Neil Yound, and The Band, whereas Britain has The Who, Beatles, Rolling Stones etc. It's not always the big-name bands who provide inspiration for others.


I do feel the same way about Franz Ferdinand.

best and british don't usually go hand in hand

sorry to disagree but that's completely false... there are many many british bands which ARE actually very good... bands from all times (Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Smiths...) and current bands like The Libertines, Muse, The Charlatans UK, Coldplay, The Cranberries, U2, The Dandy Warhols, Garbage, Interpol, New Order, P.J. Harvey, Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Placebo (do you need more bands?), etc. which are simply great...


not all good music comes from the US...

ACTUALLY, The Strokes are from the US. They rock the hizzous though. As for brit bands.....yeah, i like the older ones a bit more than the new ones. I still rely greatly on Britain to provide me with good music.

yeah, sorry, you are right... guess i was influenced by the fact that i was listening to the strokes while writing my post...


in any case, the rest of the british bands are as good as some other ones from the States... i'm a bit sick of the idea that "good" music and good musicians just comes from the USA... it is simply a lie
