Coom Julia, when did I say that I have not heard of the "conventional" British bands. I guess I have heard a bit of most bands you people like. Dont like them though, call me Brit or no Brit.
I can be an old fashioned guy at times. I love the different highland pipes, the harp and the bodhran. I connect better to them than I do with bands. Thats Britain to me. When I hear them, I make a journey of a few thousand miles and reach your land
I cant even imagine Franz Ferdinand having that effect on me. I believe music of all kind is good and its just a matter of personal choice.
