    Thank You England!

    50 years ago today, to virtually this very minute, The United States of America at large was introduced to a major force in our universe... The Beatles and the balance of the ensuing British Invasion. We owe you Brits a debt of gratitude!









    Wow!!! We've never been the same... and that's a very good thing.

    We do have good music to be thankful for, and I can't best any of those fine tunes posted above...

    But here's a few more totally British bands that come to mind from the late seventies early eighties, another great time for music:






    Not sure if these made it big or not in the US but they were big here

    I know not all the above are 2 tone but that ska movement was a truly British thing that makes me very proud of my country. I wouldn't go as far as riding a Vespa though...more rocker than mod me Just wish I was in my teens at that time, it would have been a great experience

    Can't post Beatles songs without a few of these too, a master in his own right:

    I'd have paid big money to see "the beebs" get on stage with bands like this back in the day. He'd never have left the stage alive ...
