88 Reverend and The Makers

Playing at FA Cup in Summer 2013, best known for their Top 10 hit 'Heavyweight Champion Of The World', just listen to this and I'm sure you'll love it.

There's only one rev and its Jon McClure! Bringing Heavyweight Champion of the world and The State of Things to our ears, should be top 10 at least!

89 Ride

They are great! Vapour Trail is one of the most beautiful love songs I know. Listen to it and try to tell me the opposite... you see: it's not to describe with words!

Awesome 'wall of guitars' music - brings back some memories seeing the name.

90 Lush
91 Band of Skulls
92 Teenage Fanclub

Placebo is the most wonderful group, I've ever listened

94 The Kinks The Kinks The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1963 by brothers Dave and Ray Davies.
95 Stereophonics

Superb band don't get why they've not cracked the US when in my opinion they have better songs than Oasis and (maybe) Blur and Pulp, awesome musicians and he has a lovely voice.
