Top 10 Current Local Bands – Guildford and Surrounds – February 2017
The rules – you must be based in Guildford or not that far away. I must have seen you play live. You must have played in or near Guildford in the last year or so. I have changed part of your name to the word shit to ensure that you don’t get too cocky if you’re on the list, and if you’re not on the list then you don’t get a shit so there’s some consolation. This list is based on FACTS not my personal opinion.
If you’re on the best of the rest then I wanna see you, or you just missed out, or you haven’t played locally recently enough, or you’re there cos someone I trust rates you, or maybe you’re just so fucking good that I think you’re too good to be judged against other local bands.
Feedback welcome. Noise a guitar makes I mean, not your replies.
(2) Swords of Shit
(4) Shit Church
(5) Trevor’s Shit
(6) Who Saw The Shit
(9) Victorian Whore Shits
(10) Typical Shits
Best of the rest – Blackwaters, Tommy Blackwood, Camcorder, Employed to Serve, Eulogy, Gutlocker, Heinous Pianist, Morass of Molasses, Princess, Vinyl Staircase.
Vital Note – Eulogy and Swords of Thought – PULL YOUR FINGERS OUT.
Another thing… maybe, going back 25 years, I didn’t get to as many local gigs as I should have… and no offence you lot but I am not sure any of you come close to touching the genius of Mega City Four and in particular Wiz’s incredible lyrics. But overall the standard now is so high, it really is.
