Weirdo noise scene from Newcastle is pretty good. Or at least that area. Culver/Lee Stokoe, tusk festival and opal tapes.Why some big cities don't produce anything good is a mystery innit. Newcastle's massive innit but what's it done for us? NOTHING
Yeah Iration steppas and subdub are a big thing.Sisters of Mercy were from Leeds and are relevant to this thread.
Also Iration Steppas who actually are a bit relevant too - that whole post-Shaka sound was a little gothic.
But it IS odd that Sheffield (which is smaller?) has a bunch of influential bands and Leeds not so much.
