I live about 12 miles outside of Manchester UK. These are some of the bands to have generated from my neck of the woods.
I don't know if Elbow have made it in the US yet - but take the time to listen e.g.
Ian Brown worth a watch
I have always enjoyed The Fall
You can hear his accent (same as mine) on this - Stephen Fretwell
I have James on my iPod in the gym when I feel good
and The Smiths when its a bit of a grueler.
Jeff Shepherd and Marco Sassman - Great show by Jeff Shepherd, as always, with Marco Sassman at People’s in Lafayette. A few photos:
