make a list of them!

here are the rules: you can include bands who came out prior to 1981 on the condition that the majority/most highly acclaimed section of their output was not released prior to this year. that way you are allowed to include the fall, but aren't allowed to include the sex pistols or the rolling stones, for example.

please make list, NOW!

Are MBV not Irish then?

The Fall, Ashtray Navigations, Monkey vs Robot, Sclub7, Mogwai, Urusei Yatsura, Lolita Storm, The Country Teasers/ The Rebel, AMM, Derek Bailey.


*Edit - I assume AMM and Derek Bailey don't count. But balls to you, I likes 'em.

Kate Bush (not a band, but definitely an entity hehe & primarily known after 1981)
The Smiths
The Fall
The Cure
The Police
Radiohead
Love and Rockets
Duran Duran
Arcadia
Soweto Kinch (again, not a band, but a contemporary jazz saxophonist)
New Order
The Jesus & Mary Chain
aren't The Birthday Party transplanted from Australia but still kinda British?
if forced to name a DJ, Mr. Scruff

I suppose Wire, Buzzcocks, Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Clash & Sex Pistols are a bit too early. And from a period even more previous, Nick Drake, Roxy Music, T. Rex (Marc Bolan), Syd Barrett, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, The Who & Pink Floyd would get mentions.

-napalm death
-spacemen 3/loop/spiritualized (tied, they complement each other)

i'm a bit tired at the moment so i'm probably forgetting a lot of stuff, but these 10 would be contenders for me

stereolab
vibracathedral orchestra
massive attack
skullflower (based on 1-2 albums)
spacemen 3
pj harvey (despite her latest stuff)
jesus and mary chain (based on 1-2 albums)
the cure (not sure on them because their best stuff was until 1982)
the fall (don't have anything past 1985 though)
leftfield, but only their first album
radiohead, although i never really listen to them anymore


this somehow seems much easier for bands before 1981.

- the birthday party are 100% australian, but they were based in both london and berlin for a while.

- i didn't count my bloody valentine as british, otherwise i would include them.

- stereolab wouldn't count as 100% british either, but if they have any nationality as a band then it's definitely british.

Conversations with the Unseen is one of the better jazz releases these days. good Portishead mention.

no mention of Beth Gibbons solo...or Morrissey solo by anyone yet.
Spacemen 3/Loop was a good choice nailed by Everyneurotic...Spiritualized...
pokkeherrie got Stereolab & k-krack named Mogwai...Maybe Broadcast are list-worthy.

XTC could arguably be included even though they formed pre-1981.
