Ok, so this is a pretty pointless group and maybe Morrissey is the god...but you have to admit Texas are much better than M People.

    Manchester's been ouroborotically eating itself for years now. cf. the Fuc51 blog. and i'm a Manc.

    Overall perhaps, but Oceansize and Amplifier reside in Manchester, which colours my perceptions slightly.

    I'm a Manc living in Edinburgh but would have to agree with this. My all time two favourite bands are The Bathers & Aztec Camera. Then there's Friends Again, Del Amitri, Love & Money, The Blue Nile, The River Detectives. The only Manc bands I like are The Smiths, James & some Joy Division/New Order songs are good. But we also gave the world John Cooper Clarke.

    What the fuck does someone from Poland know about Manc or Weegie music? Moron. Blasphemous group by the way.

    even though manchester have joy division, new order, the smiths and the fall I have to say glasgow has more quality bands. You cant count the mary chain though as theyre from East is Roddy Frame

    the statement made in the title of this group is probably true, though personally i'd say it's probably about even and joy division > the nation of scotland.

    Arctic Monkeys, Milburn, Little Man Tate and a lot of other bands aren't rubbish though, Milburn were given a tough time by all the music press and carried on for as long as they could manage. What are your views on Reverend and the Makers, a band that is quite big but still signed to an independant label? I'm always on the lookout for new bands, There are still people who just love music and won't listen to whatever NME tells them too, Glasvegas are actually good, it's something different and that's what's needed and before you ask, yes they are good live.

    so you're classing popular indie music as mainstream then : ) Indie in the UK is what is referred to in the US as alternative rock. I agree that the majority of the stuff in NME is shocking, but most of it isn't from Sheffield, but there are still good bands coming through, and it's these that need supporting. You want music that stands for something, try Mongrel.

    Who are these mainstream indie bands from sheffield then?

    Love the premise of the group, though when it comes to it gotta grudgingly admit that there are some good bands from manchester - Joy Division and King of the Slums would be the two stand outs for me. But would love to see it proved in a bear pit between JD including a zombie Ian Curtis vs the original Mary Chain line up. Or Morrissey arm wrestling Dougie Stewart.

    I love bands from Glasgow but I really couldnt join here, I'd be too hypocritical.

    As long as the bands in question are Celtic fans and City fans I'll give it you. Band's from Glasgow who support Celtic are better than bands from Manchester who support City. Mogwai > Oasis.

    Manchester wins. Just because of the smiths.
