UK rock music is often spoken about as struggling in modern times, if not near enough dead and gone. The truth is that whilst our charts may not be brimming with the guitars that occupied a Top 40 some fifteen years ago, there’s clusters of incredible underground scenes that are producing various strands of some of the most exciting rock music in the country for years. Whether it’s the post-punk of Sou...
