I'm wondering if any North American or ozzy/kiwi forum member have ever heard any of this music before? Especially acts like Eternal, Craig David, Stereophonics, Blur, East 17, the Verve or Gabrielle who were absolutely massive in the UK!

Apparently when the Stones played in Cuba a lot of Cubans thought they were American! (Side note: Mick Jagger is a man of Kent like myself :-))
Still, what do I know, Led Zeppelin is before my time! :-D
That’s not what I meant. What I was saying was that some of the guys who thought Zeppelin were an American band were English.

Not so much outside of Europe as far as I'm aware and nothing compared to the reach British music had in the 60's, 70' and 80's and even now post 2010.

A common thread in 90's Brit culture was its campness and freedom of expression. A carry on from the 80's. This seemed to contrast with the more delineated US culture of the time.

Blur




Pulp




Robbie Williams
