I was looking at my RYM music map and noticed I hadn’t rated a single album from Newcastle or Sunderland or Middlesbrough or any other part of North-East england. In fact I don’t even see much from Leeds tbh.
So any bands that have come out since the 80s or 90s from that NE area that are worth listening to? The google list is unreliable but it does show that Lanterns On The Lake are from Newcastle and they seem to have decent reviews with a tolerable sound. I also see Maximo Park and The Futureheads are from around there and I like a few of their songs but have no desire to listen to a full album by them.
Kenickie are from Sunderland and I do like Britpop but don’t like the voice of their lead singer and The Beautiful South are a bit too pop for me.
