Another one of these threads from my evil mind!
This time we will be focusing on music genres from where YOU live or if they originated in your country! You can do a little information on the style, maybe even a link or two!
Let me start by doing two of the styles that come to mind immediately from South Africa!
This is basically is "country" music except it is all in afrikaans! There is also ofcourse Afrikaans rock, although i dont know of any hip hop groups out there.
Usually very happy and cheerful, it can sound rater weird if you are natively English.
A short clip of a afrikaans song.
This is more of a hip hop style of music, usaully in a native language eg. Zulu or Xhosa.
It is mainly a township inspired music, usally with alot of technology involved with it.
The name Kwaito is derived from the Afrikaans word Kwaai, meaning "angry", a word that has acquired a "cool" connotation.
Hope that shared some more South African with you all!
And dont worry i will update the afrikaans one soon!
Can I say... Garage Rock?
AC/DC and Jet?
South wales....so many famous bands
Goldie Lookin Chain
Viva Machine (not famous yet, but will be soon)
and more...which i can't think of
If you are looking for some good South African music. Try Johnny Clegg. His stuff is awesome. His music has Zulu and English lyrics with many different styles.
There seems to be few Afrikaans groups (boy bands?)
Some of the more famous english bands (English speaking South Africans not people from the UK)...
well you have two choices. folk music or more modern music.
from the folk collection we have artists such as the corries (writers of our national anthem) and comeidians like billy connolly (the welly song being one of the more famous ones) and of course the proclaimers!
for rock scotland has produced a pretty nice selection including;
Marillion YouTube - Marillion - Market Square Heroes
the sensational alex harvey band YouTube - Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Boston Tea Party
travis YouTube - Travis - Sing
franz ferdinand YouTube - Franz Ferdinand - The Fallen
simple minds YouTube - Simple Minds - don't you forget about me
and a load more to boot.

Reel Big Fish- a great ska band
The Aquabats- another great ska band, but really crazy, they dress up as super heroes and during concerts they get attacked by their arch enemies, their worst enemy is Powdered Milk Man, he is a guy in a volcano suit with a water mister. they are awesome!
i need to find something interesting to put here
Ok Scotty, jokes over... NOW BEAM UP MY CLOTHES!
Ok! For Australia:
Split Enx (However, they are from NZ)
The Beautiful Girls
To name a few.
Punk Rock, Alt Rock.
"sugar we're going down swingen, id be your number one with a bullet, a loaded god complex cock it and pull it."
"back where i come from where ill be when im said and done, and im proud as anyone thats where i coooome from."
Tvs they were black and white back where i come from.
I walk into a bar passen out $100 bills and it kills and it thrills. And i buy the bar a double round of crown and this town aint never gonna be the same, cause im the only john wayne left in this town. I saddle up my hourse and i ride into the city. I make a lot of noice cause the girls they are so pretty. And the girls say save a horse ride a cowboy.
Necorn Work In Progress Click Link
Lets see Ireland. If you want to save time and see the best link IMO, go straight to the last one.
Ok the obvious one first........U2 (I don't think any of you guys need links to youtube to know any of their songs)
But lesser known bands
BellX1...........http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4XNef3rn0E (like this one quite a bit)
The Frames.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTIIWy5JR1Q (the lead singer was the base player in the commentents)
Some traditional bands
Some Sean Nos singing. This one is very very Irish, the program is presented in the irish language, as is the song. Sean Nos is the name for this style of singing.
and some Irish jigs and reels, played like any good irish music is.......in a pub
Finally the best till last. If this does not get you in the mood for a drink and the craic, then nothing will. Just imagine being in a pub anywhere in Ireland packed to the rafters with people......
and from the eighties, the same band, with "Seven Drunken Nights"
and singing "God Save Ireland"
"The Holy Ground"
But my personal favourite...Luke Kelly singing "On Raglan Road" One of my favourite singers of all time.
This song always reminds me of the verse of the Poem (whose name I can't remember) that goes
"The Great Gaels of Ireland,
Are men that God made made mad,
For all their wars are merry,
and all their songs are sad"
Wow got sort of carried away there.
