Tss... It's no better in most other places, either.


I dunno, in terms of the metal scene it is famously below par compared to the rest of the world. People can't be bothered to travel, they don't want to pay to get into gigs, or to buy CDs or merch. I go to gigs abroad and see people leaving with their arms full of cds and merch, in England a band is lucky to have people at their gigs, let alone sell cds and merch.


But when it comes to rock music in general England cannot be matched (not meaning the current state of things).

Theres a good reason the majority of Esoteric shows are NOT in the UK.

Believe it or not, it is more commercially viable to travel to Europe, the distances covered, and the costs are made worthwhile by decent turnouts and promoters who offer (and pay) you a sensible guarantee.

England is a pretty apathetic nation and in general we don't really give a shit about anything.
That's why the government can get away with murder and we just get on with our own, personal lives.

You are so right mate. I hate all these apathetic wankers in this country.
It's as if most of the nation lives in a little bubble that actively keeps reality out of sight and out of mind.
Maybe I'm going off on a tangent here but you have to ask yourself what is wrong with this country where we dont deport immigrant murderers and people who generally hate us and want to kill us for various reasons(but what about their rights?), but we do deport terminally ill immigrant students from their hospital beds.

Ah right. I have nothing against people being evacuated from burning hospitals :p
Deported from burning hospitals, now that is another matter. Hehe though maybe it's a new fucked up home office proposal for deporting people. Is the building they are in on fire? if so deport them to the nearest convenient dictatorship :)

True, its fucked up.
I guess most people are so busy living their misreable lives, they don't want to know or hear about things like this and so ignore it all and just go through the motions at their dead-end job " Maybe, i'll have saved up enough to get the fuck out of this country by the time i'm 70" always at the back of their minds!

This question alone should make you think.

I agree 100%. In fact, the whole world needs a decrease in human population.

Yes. It's a hell of a shame. I hear people complaining all the time about how there's no scene in the UK anymore. But then those same people don't bother to go & see small UK bands & are therefore cotributing to the decline. It's soul destroying to spend weeks promoting a gig & hours getting there, then no-one turns up & the venue offers you £10. Playing mainland Europe is much better.

I have no idea what the hell the original poster is talking about, because the UK has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy around Europe so clearly, they are populating.
