The only typically British guitar bands I've bought this year (so far) are Arctic's, Beady Eye and Noah And The Whale. All great albums in their own right, but there's just so much stuff I can't get into even for want of trying at the minute.
Yeah understandable, obviously age old debate of matter of opinion. But there's definitely a great handful of bands (who are also very popular) from the UK coming out with great albums this year whether people are fans or not. Whilst I love this record, guess I'm just saying they aren't the only great British band around at the moment.
