    i have to invent this genre called london becasue otherwise a genre with a three year history (hardcore/jungle/2-step/grime) has to compete against a genre with, for example, a near 40 year history (hip-hop)

    The Bug. Don't ask why - aside from 'Gun Disease', which is genuinely brilliant, his stuff just gets on my nerves now. Can't listen to 'Angry' without thinking of 'Macarena'.

    Also anything involving Nick Cave.

    TBF, I remember almost everyone at school being into music. The only kids who weren't were the weirdo types who stank of TCP and probably used to spend their weekends tormenting frogs with scalpels. This was pre-internet access though. There did seem to be a notable split, around 16/17, between dedicating your money and time to music or football.
