I can simply...move the thread!
Ha! As I said to Forostar, I'm still a newbie here. I've been in a similar situation on some other sites and I was always able to delete a thread that I had started. Oh well. No big deal. Have a nice day:)

I used to really dig Pitchshifter. Un-United Kingdom, Everything’s Fucked, Hidden Age nda, perfect tunes for young me. Around 2000 they seemed like one of the most exciting bands in the UK. Glad to see they got back together recently

OMG, hell yeah! Literally no one I know listens to them. I remember some years ago JS posted on facebook or something with 'Does anyone still care?' and I was one of the people who replied 'Me! definitely!' That reminds me I havent checked for their new stuff in a while. Something I will fix today since this pandemic has me riding a lot of free time for a while.

They did a special Brexit edition of un-United Kingdom that just starts with mocking laughter which is apt. I think they are planning to record some new stuff, UK metal could do with some politics being shoved back into it

Agreed! I might be alone in thinking this, but I wish more metal bands were like Manic Street Preachers in that sense.

If I could take some more with me, these would probably be the next 10:

11. Judas Priest - Sin After Sin
12. Manic Street Preachers - Forever Delayed: The Greatest Hits (I know it is a compilation, but it is fantastic)

15. Rainbow - Rising
16. Barón Rojo - Volumen Brutal
17. Uriah Heep - Demons and Wizards
18. Los Suaves - Ese Día Piensa en Mí
19. Rata Blanca - Magos, Espadas y Rosas
20. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

And many, many more (how about some Kraftwerk? Van der Graaf Generator? Early Genesis? Something from Bowie? Something from The Clash? The Beatles! The Rolling Stones! Van Morrison! Black Sabbath!). Too many good albums to enjoy!

Off the top of my head there are some political bands in the underground like Glitchers ( they turn up outside gigs and play to the waiting crowds and piss people off royally. I think it’s great) and Wargasm (I think) but it’s all pretty niche
