Title: Fav. Non US/CAN/UK Band?
Post by: Jacob S on December 11, 2006, 11:36:17 pm
Hello Everyone,

I'm sort of new to this forum, I've been reading for a while and I think this is a cool board.  So this is my first post.

I thought I would ask who are your favorite bands right now (or from before) who are NOT from North America or the UK?  

I would have to go with MEW (from Denmark - all though I think they live in London now, go figure...) They have been doing some pretty cool stuff.

Just thought this might be an interesting conversation starter...
