Liz Green every afternoon on Radio Leeds. She knows absolutely knack all about music. She once interviewed Terry Uttley of Smokie for an hour, during which she constantly referred to his instrument as a "bass" guitar ... pronounced as in "sea bass"!!

Please shunt her off to some all-talk show, then I won't bother listening to that either.


That sums up Leeds/Bradford music.

Isn't that a contradiction?

Normally, you would think so. However, Leeds Bradford isn't normal. It's a bit like St George Illawarra.

Some disturbing suggestions on this thread.

Mine are: ska, modern R&B, boy bands, key changes when a song doesn't need one and brass instruments.

If we're going down that particular route....

Steve Wright
Simon Bates
Local Radio DJs
Simon Bates
Terry Wogan
and Simon Bates

I was going to include Chris Moyles, but that's cheap and obvious point.

Did I mention Simon Bates?

singers who sing a dozen notes when one will do, just so that people will know whaat a great voice they have got.

srep forward Maria Carey and Whitney Huston.

traditional folk music singers who sing in that finger in yoiur ear kind of way

the tacky kind of country music which meant that for years I didn't realise what a fantastic genre it is apart from the appalling Gram Parsons.

there's one or two brilliant blues acts in Leeds: one in particular springs to mind.

+1

I also don't get folk singers who sing in that style. It's much better to sing with your own voice as opposed to deliberately trying to sound like someone else. This goes for all genres.

Miming - you wouldn't get away with pretending to do your job so why is it acceptable for singers to mime

Sampling - write your own tunes if you're "soooooo talented"

Auto tune - if I go to a gig I want "warts and all" and not artificially produced performances

Indeed, and in the same vein, 'pyrotechnic' guitar players whose attempts to play as many notes per bar as possible demonstrates nothing but their total lack of soul.

That's interesting Phil. I would put Killing Joke's Love Like Blood firmly in that category(thanks for the link BTW, I enjoyed hearing it again) . The chugging rhythm section is classic heavy rock/metal.

I was thinking of the Black Sabbath/Iron Maiden type stuff. you make a fair point though.

Singers who seem to use their hands too much whilst singing as if it helps them reach a note. It's not needed. Also singers who split single single syllable words a la Katie Perry (although I can forgive her).
