First topic message reminder :

I found something rather interesting whilst scanning t'internet this morning.

Chester, my home city, is apparently the 5th prettiest (or best, depending on your interpretation) city in Europe, beating such giants as Prague, Budapest, Santorini, Venice and Bruges. Now, seeing as the list was voted on by American's, we can assume it is 100% accurate and fully informed, seeing as they do enjoy travel so much, and has to be considered as exhaustively researched and fully comprehensive a survey as possible.

Can anyone trump Chester as the prettiest city in the UK? I can only think of York and Bath that perhaps come close, but Bath is too southern to be considered and York is too Yorkshireish to really be worthy of comparison. So it is official, Chester is the greatest city in the UK and by extension, people from Chester have to be considered as the greatest citizens of the UK.

I think you'll all agree.

It's hard to look past Newcastle for this one. It's has the metro centre and Eldon square, both of which are littered with rockeries and flower pots.
It's hard to look past Bradford...your eye keeps getting drawn back to it as you think "Dear Lord in Heaven, what the **** happened here?"


Then you go to the scummy bits........
What's the METAL scene like in Bradford, Dave?

I saw a picture of JON BON JOVI on stage with Prince William and Taylor Swift.  That must have made you desperately proud to see one your own with such exalted company?

We had a few decent local bands and used to attract some decent smaller bands until local clubs promotors started ripping them off. I haven't been out in Bradford for many years now and so I have no idea if it's good bad or indifferent these days
Struggling is the answer DAVE, Gasworks has gone right downhill but still some quality bands on, but the venue is currently horrendous, Vampire is now probably the better night (more a rock/metal disco but well attended) and worth a few beers. There are still a lot of decent Rock/Metal and other bands that play in the Burbs though

What about NICKELBACK and the GOO GOO DOLLS, rick? How about MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE.

Perhaps HEAVY METAL gods like these chaps could put the happiness back in the Bradford scene?

Lol maybe Tino there are still bits of TERRORVISION doing the rounds
