Im unfamiliar with most of the above groups, but stand out names are:

The National Check out the album Alligator for some morose ballads; a la Joy Division.
The Go! Team Sadly, they're on at the same time as the Foo Fighters.
Sleater-Kinney Energetic girl power. Yet to hear their 2005 release.

  1. Artic Monkeys are a really good Sheffield band. Check out link
    They take a few moments to download, but they're worth a listen.

  2. AM are good but it looks like Charlotte Hatherly will clash with the Killers. Damn.

  3. Michael: I'll give them a listen. Thank's for the tip.

    Holly: Killers all the way. Stick Charlotte back with other Ash members, and then you'd have a tough decision!

    Ash suck big fat ones live, whereas The Killers can do no wrong.

    Just caught Artic Monkeys in Leeds last Sat, I can understand The Libs' comparisons, but there's a lot more to em' than a liberal dose of more than a few Libs' type licks.

    I think they'll be huge, but I hope they won't…get off em' – they're MINE!

    Nice pink T-shirts as well..:~)
