Bubbling under- great British bands that didn't make the cut

Recommended Posts

Stig's done a grand job with the tournament, but there are some glaring omissions, so thought I'd start a separate thread for bands that could have made the final 64.

 

First up for me has to be Ride, probably the best live band I've ever seen. Andy Bell did slum it in Oasis for a while before they reformed, but we shouldn't hold that against him.

 

 

Next up, Adam and the Ants. I saw him a couple of years back and he was absolutely mustard, they're a lot more spiky and punkier than their most famous songs suggest.

 

 

Finally, Jesus and Mary Chain- I caught them live in Newcastle a few years ago and they were absolutely immense, even though Charlie looks like a fucking tramp nowadays.

Not a great band, more a relic from the early 00s scene. Posting for the sheer fucks of remembering it - and the memory of her voice just blowing me away live.
