so here’s a question for my UK friends: i’m constantly amazed that the UK produces SO many of the most excellent modern rock groups (i was inspired to post this by andrew jones’ post about muse). many of my favorite bands come from britain. BUT, every time i’m in england or ireland, and turn on the radio, all i can find is top-40 dance crap. i’ll change stations for hours, trying to find one that plays great modern rock — the bands that should be and are hometown heros. but i can’t find it. what’s with that?
