UK Acts That Need to Tour America
We can agree to disagree, but the rainy and grey United Kingdom has produced several of the most evocative and influential bands of the past century, extending far past The Beatles and The Smiths to contemporary experimental acts. The problem, however, is that a good number of them have an irksome tendency to become insular, preferring to stay close to home. True, it’s at times more cost-effective and far easier to schedule, but that doesn’t help us fans here over in the States. With that in mind, here’s a list of UK acts we’d love to see in the near future — or, like, now.
Aphex Twin, Burial, Emmy The Great, Lush, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, Slowdive, Stereolab, Suede, The History of Apple Pie, The Libertines, The Prodigy, The Verve
