Its the xfactor culture that has killed music, nobody in modern music is doing it for me at the moment bar the arctic monkeys & Jake bugg.
I tend to like 80s/90s indie stuff. Right into the stone roses, oasis, OCS, verve, primal scream, the la's/cast.... Could rhyme them off all day but you get the picture! Guilty pleasure being a bit of Simon & garfukle
I have far too many bands that I can't choose from. But apart from those that have been mentioned like RHCP and Oasis or the obvious like The Beatles. I have seen a band called Rise Against live, definitely one of my favourite bands and amazing live.
