*the topic description is a joke, just to clarify.

Hey guys, I'm kind of interested as to what music is like in different parts of the world, at the moment.

I'm interested, because, in this international age, one would assume that music taste/style/etc would be uniform across the globe, butttttttt, I'd hope that I'm incorrect...

...mostly because Australia is still suffering the hipster plague of 2010, and thus, music is pretty f*cking terrible.

So what is music like, wherever you guys are from?

I like to think of the UK music wise as a melting pot of songs.

However, there is one music event that we have that I don't think many other countries have, and that is "The Proms".





And I'll just throw this song in by the London Symphony Orchestra for fun. biggrin.gif

My local bands,
music from here in no real order what so ever;


The Damned - Came from around the corner.


T-Rex - Went to my first school.


Jeff Beck - 's from my town, or so my town say, he's from near it, but, from it too, I guess.


Hot Chocolate - Used to see this guy around Sainsbury's ('the supermarket.')


Dido - Used to use my old Job Centre, Streatham Job Centre.


The Clash

David Bowie too.

At one point, Bob Marley lived in Brixton aswell.

This music video was shot in Brixton. dozingoff.gif


Eternal - Came from around the same corner as the Damned did.


This too.

Around another corner from me is the Brit School, the other bus stop, so;

Amy Winehouse
Leona Lewis
Adele (also local.)

This guy's from Jamaica, but he moved to my neighbourhood and lived down the street. He died here too.

Desmond Dekker.

And others. There's a lot of music here, from underground to mainstream, rock/rap/whatever. They say DubStep was invented here too.

These are just the local ones that I know about, don't get me started on the rest of London, or I'd be here all week.

Well over the last few years most people here on Long Island listen to rap/hip hop or whatever's mainstream on the radio like Lil Wayne. But recently dubstep has become a big thing especially when i went to college. So...i'd still say the music taste is terrible but i know Linkin Park, Metallica and some other bands that i like are coming out with new albums.

If i had to say any decent or good rappers right now in the mainstream it would be Kid Cudi & Kanye West

Music's the same here as it is anywhere.

Okay, maybe it's a just little bit more vibrant here, but not by much, we still get all the same things as everybody else.

Any good new bands? Anywhere? Or is the music industry pretty much polluted with hipster crap, such as Odd Future.

Now there is a never ending question.

I don't get out much these days, but we [always had] have a pretty decent music scene in this town.

Oh and I'm pretty sure we gave the world Doo Wop.

The radio around here plays nothing but country, country, and more country. Not the older stuff either, the newer, pop-country that will drive you to take an ice pick and jam it into your eardrum after prolonged exposure. suicidal.gif The only "local" artist of any note would be Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish.

If you travel to Middle Minnesota, you'll find some Country bumpkins too, I know the feeling. Don Henley of the Eagles made mention of some new country artists he admires, but he's sung about the lack of traditional country, but there should be a fair balance. Seems here, the Southern end of MN, we have two main rock stations, another is a more nu-metal one, not really my taste, though before they set in on a format genre, they were actually a breath of fresh air

Australia had plenty of great bands in the 90s but they are more rare these days. Some good Aussie bands The Avalanches, Regurgitator, The Presets, Grinspoon, Sliverchair, Bodyjar, Machine Gun Fellatio, The Butterfly Effect, The Vines, The Living End, Pendulum and more, I know Im forgetting a bunch.

Well I live in the Netherlands where Electronic House/Progressive/Attack/Trance is really exploding to the mainstream now. Only true House DJ's like Hardwell, Armin van Buuren and Tiesto for example keep their style.

That's because you don't attend concerts and whatnot over in Singapore. We're from the same country, but I bet I know more about it then you do.

Can't find a proper video for some of the songs. Local bands here don't have an official channel.

Heard about what happened in Australia. I wonder if Silverchair is still around there? I haven't listened to them in ages.



I'm not that into it but the flow and rhyming pattern is impressive. It's pretty good if you ask me.

Britain can do posh rather well.


Bohemian Rhapsody is as British as the unicorn on my passport.
