Any particular reason or I am I talking bollocks
Whats big bands particular lately have hailed from the north east?
A subject I am very interested in. I've heard via BBC Newcastle(spit) some decent local bands that deserve more exsposure as the songs are worthy of attention imo. As someone who has been involved in the biz, the NE is overlooked by a&r as a general rule and their efforts go into 'sourcing talent' from the south. If it completely went dead down here, only then would they luck further north.
Sad but, there you have it. If you have any ambitions in Art, you go south because that's where it all is, it's been that way since The Beatles and it's also why they and me moved south all those years ago :)
