Bands A to Z

This is quite a wide-ranging list that goes beyond what I love, but is less “anything goes” than my other A to Zs.  Let me know if you want to be added or you think something needs removing or correcting.  Focuses on Guildford, Aldershot, but extends further and includes some bands from a little further afield who seem to have close links to Guildford, Aldershot etc.
